Exeter rugby manager Rob Baxter welcomed Saracens on his return to the Premiership after a brief stint in England’s second division.
Last season, the Sarries had descended as a consequence by breach financial fair play and now they return to England’s rugby elite next weekend when they make their debut against the Bristol Bears. “I think they will be a very good rival. Looking at the squad, it’s a good group of playersBaxter said.
With his return to the top flight, fans already position Owen Farrell’s team, along with the Chiefs, as the favorites to take the title. The two have met in three of the last six finals contested at Twickenham.
“For me, it is not a negative thing that there is a team that puts you to the test and leads you to raise the bar to beat it. It has always been a tough competition and that will not change”, finished the manager of Exeter, current runner-up in the Premiership.
