Aviva Premiership final: Owen Farrell denies George Ford rivalry

Saracens' Owen Farrell plays down talk of a rivalry between himself and Bath fly-half George Ford ahead of Saturday's Aviva Premiership final against Bath.

Farrell says he has swapped friendly texts this week with England team-mate Ford, with the two set to compete for a starting berth at the World Cup following the Twickenham showpiece.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall said his team was "buoyant" after last weekend's semi-final victory over Northampton Saints.
