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.

SARACENS

Alex Goode

Had his moments in attack as Saracens consistently looked dangerous with ball in hand. 7

Liam Williams

Scored a second half try, and Exeter could never take a defensive eye off him. 7

Alex Lozowski

Solid, rather than spectacular, and rarely did anything wrong. 6

Brad Barritt

The skipper overcame a hamstring injury to start but went off at half-time. 6

Sean Maitland

Emulated Williams in scoring a try that continued Saracens’ fightback. A threat throughout. 7

Owen Farrell

Uncharacteristically missed a few kicks, but he came up trumps when it mattered to steer Saracens home, 7

Ben Spencer

Scored a try and has been among the Premiership’s star performers this term. 7

Richard Barrington

Stepped in for an injured Mako Vunipola, and – as in the Champions Cup final three weeks ago – delivered. 7

Jamie George

A magnificent display by the England hooker, who scored two tries and operated at a lung-busting level. 9

Vincent Koch

Matched Barrington in terms of his work-rate. A tireless effort. 7

Will Skelton

Another performance that bristled with quality and power. He has been a tower of strength all term. 8

George Kruis

Messed up the kick-off that led to an Exeter try after 28 seconds, but recovered impressively. 7

Maro Itoje

Yellow-carded – as he was in the Champions Cup final – and was mysteriously named official man-of-the-match. 6

Jackson Wray

Just below his optimum best, but still a major player as Saracens secured a European and domestic trophy double. 7

Billy Vunipola

Less effective than in the Champions Cup final, but still a prominent force. 7

Replacements

The combined effect of Saracens’ bench helped them close out an outstanding and thrilling victory. 7
