Sports Mole previews Saracens' Aviva Premiership game against the Exeter Chiefs.

Saracens will make their debut at the newly-renovated Allianz Park tomorrow knowing that a bonus-point win over Exeter Chiefs could send them to the top of the Aviva Premiership.

The home side will still be without a number of their regular players because of the Six Nations, but Adam Powell, Mako Vunipola and Will Fraser are among those coming back in to the starting lineup, as Sarries look to put their 29-16 loss to London Irish last weekend behind them.

Meanwhile, Exeter make four changes to the side that lost 21-16 to Sale Sharks last weekend, which include debuts for Damian Welch and Kai Horstmann.

Ian Whitten and Matt Jess also come into the starting XV in place of Sireli Naqelevuki and Watisoni Votu.

The game will be the first in the history of the Premiership to take place on an artificial pitch.
