Thatcher died on Monday following a stroke aged 87.

Britain's only woman Prime Minister, she was elected in 1979 and governed until her resignation in 1990.

Exeter said on their website that they will pay their respects to Thatcher ahead of Saturday's game against London Irish while Saracens will do the same before they host Worcester on Sunday.
