Wigglesworth refuses to give up dream of an England recall

The former Sale No 9 will run out at Sandy Park in Saracens Aviva Premiership semi-final clash with Exeter as the form scrum half in England but, despite being repeatedly overlooked since Jones took charge, the Blackpool-born half back will never give up hope of adding to his 27 worldwide cap tally. While that match ended in a 13-13 draw, Saracens had only 14 men on the field for the majority of it and Nowell is wary of the champions' aggressive defence against an Exeter midfield who have conceded several interception tries lately.

"To have that home semi final with the home fans is a bit special and speaking with other players it is a bit daunting to come down to Sandy Park and play sometimes, so to have that on our side is pretty cool". I am confident that I will be going for the next few years, and not only going but looking to improve.

It's little wonder therefore that tomorrow's tussle is being eagerly anticipated by rugby folk across the land, as well as those associated with both clubs.

Like the Chiefs, Saracens have slowly gone about their business well and are hitting their straps at just the right time of the season. We said "look, we've done it once, there is no reason we can't be up there again". Baxter refused to talk tactics when quizzed by the media this week, but was happy to give an insight into his and Exeter's thinking ahead of the game. It's not creating the plan that is the hard part, it's executing it at the end of the day!

'For example, many people wrote off Nick Easter's Englad career three, four years ago, yet he ended up in the 2015 World Cup squad.

Those two games against Saracens did not go as well as many would have hoped. But first things first, we've got a massive game this weekend.

"What they (Saracens) have done is awesome but we've been concentrating a lot on ourselves".

All Wigglesworth can do is keep on producing the goods for Saracens. But it is time to focus again and focus exclusively on Exeter.

"The truth is, they've had a tough game, so we have to play in a way that physically and emotionally challenges them", said the Exeter head coach. Every team in the Premiership is striving for that and we're no different. So there are swings and roundabouts.

Saracens will arrive at Sandy Park as the best team in Europe.

"Feeling that you can win anywhere is very important and Saracens have that but I'd like to think we've got an element of that as well because of our run in the Premiership recently when we've won home or away and seen off all comers".

'I've always wanted to play on for as long as is possible, ' he said. It would be very selfish of me to be thinking of what's coming in the summer.

"I think we learnt from not dealing with the final as well as we could have done. That makes me feel like we've got a great chance".

Wasps make two changes from the 35-15 defeat of Saracens two weeks ago with Ashley Johnson and Phil Swainston starting in the front row alongside Matt Mullan and Tommy Taylor and Marty Moore returning to fitness, to take a place on the bench.
