Twickenham goal for Saracens

Saracens will play at Twickenham if they reach this season's Heineken Cup semi-finals.

The reigning Aviva Premiership champions can book a last-four place with victory over Clermont Auvergne at Vicarage Road on Sunday.

And tournament organisers have confirmed that if they triumph, Twickenham will stage Saracens' semi-final on Sunday April 29, against holders Leinster or sole Welsh survivors Cardiff Blues.

Should Clermont topple Saracens, then the semi-final will be at Stade Chaban-Delmas in Bordeaux.

The other semi-final a day earlier - Munster or Ulster versus Edinburgh or Toulouse - has been confirmed for Dublin's Aviva Stadium.

The final is at Twickenham on Saturday May 19.

The Amlin Challenge Cup semi-finals - Toulon or Harlequins against Stade Francais or Exeter and Wasps or Biarritz versus Brive or Scarlets - are scheduled for, respectively, April 27 and April 28 or 29, at the winners' home grounds.
