rugby union's first plastic pitch

Saracens will create a bit of history on Saturday when they host Exeter Chiefs.

As well as being their first Premiership game at their new stadium in Barnet, north London, it will be the first time that a top-flight league match will have been played on an artificial surface.

The surface cost £600,000 to install, as BBC Sport's Matt Slater reports.
