Exeter Chiefs player ratings - versus Saracens

Saracens completed a memorable European and domestic double after retaining the Gallagher Premiership title by beating Exeter Chiefs 37-34 at Twickenham.

The teams shared 10 tries during unquestionably the greatest Premiership final in its 16-year history.

Exeter led after just 28 seconds when scrum-half Nic White claimed the quickest Premiership final touchdown, but Saracens ultimately prevailed.

Here’s how the Exeter players rated:

Jack Nowell

The England international was like an electric eel in overdrive. An outstanding attacking display. 8 /10

Alex Cuthbert

Had few chances in attack but was consistent throughout. 6

Henry Slade

Sin-binned early on, but scored a try and was at the heart of Exeter’s attacking game. 7

Ollie Devoto

Did his job consistently and linked well with Slade in midfield. 6

Tom O’Flaherty

An elusive runner that Exeter tried to free regularly. He was a threat to Saracens’ defence. 7

Joe Simmonds

Could not quite boss the game as he might have liked, but a solid performance nonetheless. 6

Nic White

Scored the quickest try in Premiership final history and cajoled his forwards all afternoon. 7

Ben Moon

At the heart of a powerful first half display from the Chiefs, especially at set-piece time. 7

Jack Yeandle

A hard-working contribution from a player who has been consistent throughout the campaign. 6

Harry Williams

Joined Moon in spearheading a physical Exeter approach that asked plenty of questions of Saracens. 7

Dave Dennis

Continued his impressive recent form. Never took a backward step. 7

Jonny Hill

One of Exeter’s try-scorers who was at the heart of a ferocious physical approach by his team. 7

Dave Ewers

Outstanding try-scoring contribution. Along with Nowell, was Exeter’s best player. 8

Don Armand

Not able to make his usual impact during a high-octane encounter. 6

Matt Kvesic

Like Armand, not quite at his best as Saracens fought from behind to be crowned Premiership champions. 6

Replacements

Exeter boss Rob Baxter did his utmost to secure impact off the bench, but Saracens had just enough in the tank. 6
