Full-back Byron McGuigan has said Exeter Chiefs can "make history" by finishing in the top four of the Premiership to secure a play-off place.

The Devon side sit fifth, one point behind fourth-placed Leicester, and go to Saracens in their penultimate match.

"It's a big game for our season - to keep our season alive and make history for the club," McGuigan told BBC Devon.

"The boys have been doing their recovery and getting their hunger back now for these last two big games."

Exeter have lost their last two games and finish their Premiership campaign against Sale at Sandy Park.

An injury to Phil Dollman meant McGuigan was handed a starting spot in their 36-29 defeat away to Wasps last time out.

"This week is obviously massive for both teams - we're mentally preparing and we're doing all the work on the field," added McGuigan.

"We've played Saracens three times this year so we know what to expect and what we need to do to beat them."

Meanwhile, winger Fetu'u Vainikolo has joined French Top 14 club Oyonnax for the next two seasons.

The Tongan international has made 10 appearances for Exeter in all competitions this season, scoring five tries.
