England's Six Nations winnersClub action is back and the race to the play-offs heats up with the return of the Premier 15s.

The Six Nations have taken centre stage in recent weeks. This has meant that the top-flight competition for women has been suspended for 56 days.

Round 17 starts with the third host as Saracens travel to Exeter Chiefs. They have already claimed one spot in the play-offs.

There are four more games scheduled for Saturday, with Harlequins' visit to Bristol Bears as the champions. This will be broadcast live on BBC Red Button.

There are five teams competing to finish in the top four after Sarries. With only 13 points between Bristol Bears in 2nd and Loughborough Lightning 6th, there is just one team.

Exeter, Quins and Wasps are the other three.

There are two rounds of fixtures remaining, and all the squads are back to full strength following the return of international players, so it's going down to the wire.

Gloucester-Hartpury v Wasps (14:00)
