  1. A final day to remember

    Niall Morris

    That just about concludes our coverage of the final day of the Premiership season. The four of us are all off for a long lie down.

    Today's results mean next Saturday's play-off semi-finals are looking like this...

    • Northampton Saints v Saracens (14:00 BST)
    • Bath v Leicester Tigers (17:00 BST)

    And we'll have live text commentary of both of those matches too!

    We'll see you then.

  2. Recap

    Newcastle 37-21 Harlequins

    Newcastle v Harlequins

    Harlequins' poor campaign came to an end with defeat at second-bottom Newcastle Falcons.

    The hosts ran in five tries as they turned around a first-half deficit at Kingston Park.

    This time last year Quins were preparing for a play-off semi-final against Saracens after finishing fourth, but in 2014-15 they will have to settle for eighth and no European Champions Cup place.

  3. Recap

    Bath 50-30 Gloucester

    Bath v Gloucester

    Although there was little riding on the game in terms of league standings, there was no shortage of drama in a West Country derby which saw 80 points racked up and 11 tries scored.

    Bath finished a point behind Northampton in second, while Gloucester will have to regroup after finishing a disappointing ninth.

    Next up for Mike Ford's men will be Leicester in the play-off semi-finals. He will be hoping history repeats itself after the Blue, Black and Whites ran out 45-0 winners at The Rec in September.

  4. Recap

    London Irish 40-40 Wasps

    Ashley Johnson

    Wasps secured the two points they needed to guarantee their top-six finish ahead of Sale Sharks with a draw against London Irish. Trailing at the break, they scored five tries in total with the Premiership's golden boot winner Andy Goode slotting six kicks.

    Winger James Short went over twice as London Irish also crossed five times at the Madejski Stadium.

  5. Recap

    London Welsh 17-68 Saracens

    Chris Ashton

    Saracens knew they had to score some serious points against London Welsh to reach the top four - just as they did earlier in the season.

    And, having led only 26-17 at the break, Mark McCall's side duly ran riot in the second half as they touched down 10 times, including four for winger Chris Ashton, who broke the record for the fastest-ever Premiership hat-trick.

    London Welsh played their final game of a miserable season where they finish bottom with just one point picked up over 22 games. They conceded more than 1,000 points across those fixtures.

    Josh Bolam: Great result for Newcastle, that win has been coming over the last few weeks. Great send off for Mike Blair

  7. Recap

    Exeter Chiefs 44-16 Sale Sharks

    Gareth Steenson,

    It was a case of so near, yet so far for Exeter Chiefs. Knowing they had to better Saracens' result at London Welsh, they ran in seven tries against Sale Sharks in the sunshine at Sandy Park, but they missed out on a top four place by 20 points.

    Sale's slim top-six hopes were let down by indiscipline - Ross Harrison was sent off late on for throwing punches to the head, while Jonny Leota and Mark Cueto were both sin binned.

    Former England winger Cueto ended his career in the sin bin, having been yellow-carded with 10 minutes left.

  8. Recap

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Julian Salvi

    In a typically fiery East Midlands derby, Leicester Tigers did their bit to confirm a top-four place for the 11th year running against a Northampton Saints side who rested a number of key players.

    Jordan Crane and Niall Morris were the try-scorers for the Tigers as they finished third in the table.

  9. How it finished

    Premiership Table

    Before we have a wee look back at how the final day unfolded, here's confirmation of how the Premiership table ended up.

  10. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Richard Cockerill

    Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill told BT Sport: "I'm not sure I enjoyed it too much. Saints made us work really hard, we probably didn't play as well as we would have liked but it was job done.

    "We delete that from our minds now and we prepare for Bath. We'll regroup, we'll freshen up and all the pressure is on them. They've had a good season, they're a great side.

    "We've had a poor season by many standards but we're in the mix now and it's just one-off games."

  11. Post update

    Exeter Chiefs 44-16 Sale Sharks

    Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter told BT Sport: "We've got a fantastic season ahead next year, the Premiership is a great competition, getting better all the time. We're back in the top tier of the European competition."

  12. Post update

    Exeter Chiefs 44-16 Sale Sharks

    Rob Baxter

    Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter told BT Sport: "In the second half today we were a very good side. The key for us is making sure that's how we stay when it gets tough and it gets tight.

    "Sometimes when we go within ourselves that's our challenge, that's the battle."

  13. Post update

    London Welsh 17-68 Saracens

    Saracens wing Chris Ashton on Sarries' tie against Northampton Saints in the play-off semi-finals: "I think they're in the position we were in last year, all the pressure is on them, we've come fourth.

    "We know the task we've got to do, we've had a good couple of games between ourselves and them so we're looking forward to it."

  14. Post update

    London Welsh 17-68 Saracens

    Saracens wing Chris Ashton told BT Sport: "Welsh have done well all season against the big teams, they've scored two tries generally before half-time. We tried to stop that but we couldn't.

    "We stayed calm as much as we could, I thought we had the fitness over them to get them at the end."

  18. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Leicester Tigers prop Dan Cole told BT Sport: "We knew it was going to be difficult, whatever side Saints bring they were coming here to spoil the party and put us out.

    "That's the rivalry, it's a local game, a local derby.

    "We knew it would take 80 minutes to win the game and it did."

  19. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Leicester Tigers prop Dan Cole told BT Sport: "It's massive. It's why we play the game, we've got a great history of reaching the play-offs.

    "This year it's been a bit sticky in parts but we've come through. It's taken until the last day of the season but we're in it and that's what matters."

  22. BreakingBreaking news

    Leicester Tigers

    Leicester Tigers and Saracens have qualified for the Premiership play-offs, while Exeter Chiefs finish fifth.

    Wasps have pipped Sale Sharks to the final European Champions Cup place.

  23. Full-time

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Leicester are into the play-offs for the 12th season in a row after a hard-fought victory over their East Midlands' rivals Northampton Saints.

    Tigers came out a different side in the second-half after trailing at the break, but were helped by Saints being reduced to 13 men early on.

    Tom Stephenson's late try for the visitors made it a nervy final five minutes, but Leicester held on.

  24. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Northampton are pushing once again. They are inside the Tigers' 22 with 10 seconds to go.

    But it's a penalty to Leicester and this game is as good as over...

  25. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    Leicester are winding the clock down as Tommy Bell kicks a penalty to the corner.

    Line-out to Tigers. Just 90 seconds to go.

  26. Full-time: Around the grounds

    We have now reached full-time everywhere apart from at Welford Road - and Saracens have won 68-17 at London Welsh.

    We already know Bath beat Gloucester 50-30 at The Rec, and Newcastle Falcons have also beaten Harlequins 37-21, as Andy Saull scores a late try for the hosts.

    Elsewhere, London Irish scored a late try though James Short to draw 40-40 with Wasps.

  27. Full-time

    Exeter Chiefs 44-16 Sale Sharks

    No play-off place for Exeter at the moment despite running in seven tries in the sunshine at Sandy Park.

    They've got to hope that Northampton can do them a favour at Welford Road, as the Saints are just six points behind in the closing stages.

  28. Try (Stephenson, missed con Oliver, 76 mins)

    Leicester Tigers 22-14 Northampton Saints

    That came from absolutely nowhere. Northampton burst forward and work the ball out wide to Tom Stephenson, who darts around a couple of tackles and crosses the try-line.

    Sam Oliver misses the conversion, but that try has given Exeter some hope.

    They need Northampton to win to move back into the top four.

  29. Try (McGuigan, missed con Steenson, 78 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 44-16 Sale Sharks

    Exeter Chiefs

    With both sides not up to their full compliment of XV, Exeter spread the play this way and that.

    The hosts spin it to the right-hand touchline, where Byron McGuian is in acres of space to place down with no one near him.

  30. Red card (Harrison)

    Exeter Chiefs 39-16 Sale Sharks

    Sale's season is not ending well. Substitute prop Ross Harrison is sent off for throwing punches to the head of Alex Brown.

    The pair became involved in the scuffle after Brown had a hold of Harrison's shirt, but the Sharks prop launches a couple of blows to his head.

    Brown, for his part, is sent to the sin-bin so 13 plays 14 to end the game.

  31. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 22-9 Northampton Saints

    Leicester Tigers

    The Welford Road faithful are certainly much happier in this half and in fine voice.

    They know their side have virtually sealed a play-off spot for the 12th season in a row.

    The game is a much more even contest now Saints have both their sin-binned men back.

  32. Around the grounds

    Scrum-half Dan Robson scores a converted try for Gloucester at The Rec, but Bath respond with a try of their own, from Horacio Agulla, and the Blue, Black and Whites win the West Country derby 50-30.

    Meanwhile, Wasps go back in front at London Irish thanks to a converted James Haskell try. It's 40-35 in that absolute thriller.

    Elsewhere, Newcastle Falcons are now 32-21 up against Harlequins.

    And Charlie Hodgson adds a great solo try for Saracens, who now lead 68-17 at London Welsh.

  33. Penalty (Bell)

    Leicester Tigers 22-9 Northampton Saints

    Moments after coming on to replace Freddie Burns, Tommy Bell has a penalty to contend with.

    However, it's no problem and he kicks it calmly from the tee to extend Leicester's lead to 13 points.

  34. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 19-9 Northampton Saints

    Dylan Hartley is now on the pitch. A number of substitutions for both sides. It also looks as though Freddie Burns is injured and he comes off too.

    That is not good news if Leicester make the play-offs, which it looks as though they will do now with just under 15 minutes left.

    Northampton are also back up to their full quota of 15.

  35. Into the final 15 minutes

    Ben Youngs

    We're well into the final quarter of each of our matches. As things stand, Leicester Tigers and Saracens are heading for the play-offs and Exeter Chiefs, despite beating Sale Sharks, look to be heading for final-day heartbreak.

    Wasps have a pretty firm grip on a spot in next season's European Champions Cup.

  36. Sin-bin (Cueto)

    Exeter Chiefs 39-16 Sale Sharks

    This not how you want to end a glittering career. Mark Cueto, who is retiring after this game, is sent to the sin bin for a deliberate knock on.

    With less than 10 minutes to go, the Premiership's record try scorer will end his 14-year stint unfortunately sat on the bench.

    The Chiefs fans do give him a standing ovation as he walks off and he responds by clapping all around the packed Sandy Park.

  37. Post update

    Exeter Chiefs 39-16 Sale Sharks

    Sale are back up to their full XV, but are struggling to contain wave after wave of Exeter attacks.

    The message looks to have come through that they need points, but Saracens have an 18-point advantage as it stands because of their 61-17 lead at London Welsh.

  38. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 19-9 Northampton Saints

    That was a bit strange. Saints' captain Dylan Hartley, on the bench today, wanders onto the pitch as if he going to come on, but then comes straight back off.

    Not sure what happened there to be honest. If I find out I'll let you know!

  39. Around the grounds

    Chris Ashton has his fourth try of the day and Saracens now lead by 44 points, 61-17, at London Welsh.

    And Wasps are now losing 35-33 at London Irish after a Shane Geraghty kick.

  40. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 19-9 Northampton Saints

    Despite being down to 13 men, Northampton are enjoying their best spell of pressure of the second half as they approach the Leicester 22.

    However, the move breaks down, Tigers are awarded a penalty and are back on the attack.

  41. Around the grounds

    Chris Ashton

    Saracens are home and dry now, surely. Chris Ashton finishes off a fabulous team move and then adds another try moments later to make it 54-17 against London Welsh.

    Meanwhile, London Irish's James Short has scored to reduce Wasps' lead to just 32-33.

    Bath's Semesa Rokoduguni puts them 43-23 up against Gloucester at Yhe Rec.

    And Mike Blair crosses for Newcastle Falcons, who now lead Harlequins 25-21.

  42. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    Our vote has now closed. We'll bring you the final results once the dust has settled on this crazy, crazy afternoon in the Premiership.

  43. Try (Slade, missed con Steenson, 64 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 39-16 Sale Sharks

    Exeter are on the rampage now, knowing they need points.

    Another barraging run from Thomas Waldrom sets up the platform. Henry Slade then glides through a couple of half-hearted challenges and, although he is brought down, he wasn't held so wriggles forward on the ground to place down.

    The Chiefs temporarily go into fourth but news comes through of another Saracens try.

  44. Try (Morris, missed con Burns, 58 mins)

    Leicester Tigers 19-9 Northampton Saints

    Niall Morris

    There are gaps all over the pitch now and Niall Morris dances his way through for Leicester's second try.

    The ball works its way out wide to the Irish full-back on the right and he jinks past a couple of Saints' men to touch down.

    Freddie Burns' difficult conversion from near the touchline hits the post and bounces wide.

  45. Try (Jess, con Steenson, 61 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 34-16 Sale Sharks

    Exeter Chiefs are certainly doing their bit in the race for the play-offs.

    Ian Whitten shows nice footwork inside his own half to break the Sale defensive line, before then accelerating away and feeding Matt Jess for the long sprint into the corner.

    With Jonny Leota still in the sin bin for Sale, the Chiefs have really made this count.

  46. Around the grounds

    Saracens really are heading for the top four now, as Juan Figallo scores their sixth try of the afternoon to make it 40-17 against London Welsh.

    Gloucester have got themselves back in it in the West Country derby with a second Stevie McColl try, but the Blue, Black and Whites score again through Anthony Watson, which means Bath lead 36-23.

    And Harlequins lead again at Newcastle Falcons after a Marland Yarde try makes it 21-18 there.

  47. Penalty (Burns)

    Leicester Tigers 14-9 Northampton Saints

    Freddie Burns

    All of that indiscipline from Northampton in the scrum finally results in a penalty to Leicester, which Freddie Burns slots over in front of the posts.

    Tigers' lead is back up to five points and they have a two-man advantage too.

    At the moment they're heading for the play-offs - but this could be a key period coming up.

  48. Sin-bin (Ma'afu)

    Leicester Tigers 11-9 Northampton Saints

    This is extraordinary. Salesi Ma'afu has to come back on for Saints after Gareth Denman is sin-binned, but he is then shown a yellow card for another infringement in the scrum straight away.

    Saints are down to 13 men.

  49. Try (Jess, missed con Steenson, 58 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 27-16 Sale Sharks

    Exeter make the man-advantage count and they've secured the try bonus point with 15 minutes to go.

    Working it from left to right, Matt Jess has space to attack and backs himself from 10 metres out and he breaks the line and crosses.

    Has the winger, who has come through from the Championship with the club, secured a play-off place with that score?

  50. Around the grounds

    Bath extend their lead against Gloucester at The Rec thanks to Ollie Devoto's try. It's now 31-16 in that one.

    Up north, Newcastle Falcons have gone ahead against Harlequins. Scott Lawson's converted try means it is now 18-16 to Falcons there.

  51. Sin-bin (Denman)

    Leicester Tigers 11-9 Northampton Saints

    Saints' Gareth Denman has only been on the pitch a couple of minutes but he's already back on the bench.

    Moments after coming on for Salesi Ma'afu, the prop is given a yellow card as the referee loses patience with a series of infringements in the scrum.

    Tigers are camped in front of the Northampton try-line.

  52. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    A quick heads up that you've got only 10 more minutes to have your say on our main discussion topic of the day.

    The vote, which you can find on the right-hand side of the page (desktop) or via the tab at the top (mobile and tablet), will close at 17:00 BST and you can click here to read our voting terms and conditions.

  53. Sin-bin (Leota)

    Exeter Chiefs 22-16 Sale Sharks

    Sale are down to 14 men as centre Jonny Leota is given 10 minutes for his high tackle on scrum-half Will Chudley.

    Chudley was trying to step inside the Samoan, who was committed to the tackle, but his high, swinging arm caught him on the cheek.

    Gareth Steenson misses the attempted penalty but are Sale's top-six hopes disappearing with that decision?

  54. Around the grounds

    Sailosi Tagicakibau gets his second try of the afternoon for Wasps and Rob Miller gets another soon afterwards, so they now lead 30-25 against London Irish at the Madejski Stadium. With Sale Sharks losing at Sandy Park, it does look as though Dai Young's side have sixth place all but wrapped up.

    Elsewhere, Bath still lead Gloucester 24-16 in the West Country derby and Harlequins are still 16-11 up at Newcastle Falcons.

  55. Disallowed try

    Leicester Tigers 11-9 Northampton Saints

    Leicester think they've extended their lead as Ben Youngs tries to touch down next to the posts but referee Matthew Carley asks the Television Match Official for a decision.

    Replays show a fantastic piece of defensive work from Alex Corbisiero and Sam Dickinson has kept the ball up.

    No try. It's all Leicester so far this half though.

  56. Try (Beaumont, missed con Cipriani, 49 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 22-16 Sale Sharks

    The more he plays, the more Josh Beaumont looks like a future England international.

    An immediate response from Sale, as they patiently work up into the 22. Danny Cipriani's long pass finds prop Vadim Cobilas and the Moldovan's one-handed lob reaches Beaumont, who launches through two tackles out wide.

  57. Around the grounds

    England full-back Alex Goode is unimpeded as he scores a converted try for Saracens, who now lead 33-17 at London Welsh.

    It looks like Exeter Chiefs have now slipped out of the top four, even though they're beating Sale Sharks.

  58. Penalty (Burns)

    Leicester Tigers 11-9 Northampton Saints

    Saints' Tom Stephenson concedes a penalty for not moving away and gives Freddie Burns an opportunity to put Tigers back into the lead.

    The fly-half steps up and slots the ball straight through the posts.

    Just the start Leicester would have wanted - they're back into the play-off places.

  59. Try (White, con Steenson, 45 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 22-11 Sale Sharks

    Exeter Chiefs

    All about the power runners this try for Exeter.

    First captain Dean Mumm sets up the platform with a solid drive, a burst from number eight Thomas Waldrom got them to within five metres and then Ben White powers through Sale challenges to just about cross the line.

    The Chiefs heading for the top four at the moment.

  60. Kick-off

    Right then, it looks like our six Premiership fixtures are beginning to resume again. We're 40 minutes away from finding out who's making the play-offs and who's heading for the European Champions Cup.

  61. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

  63. Heroes and villians

    George Ford

    If you cast your mind back 12 months, it was George Ford's missed drop goal for Bath with the last kick of the last game at Harlequins that cost the Blue, Black and Whites a place in the play-offs.

    This year they've got it all wrapped up already, of course, but I wonder if someone else will be in Ford's shoes come 17:00 BST this evening?

  64. Where we stand

    If results stay as they are, Exeter Chiefs and Saracens will finish in the play-off places and Leicester Tigers will miss out.

    Wasps, meanwhile, will take sixth place despite being behind at London Irish.

    All understood? We hope so!

  65. Pause for breath

    So, it's half-time in all of our games up and down the country. Here's how things stand at the break:

    • Bath 21-13 Gloucester
    • Exeter Chiefs 15-11 Sale Sharks
    • Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints
    • London Irish 22-18 Wasps
    • London Welsh 17-26 Saracens
    • Newcastle Falcons 11-16 Harlequins
  66. Around the grounds

    Right on half-time, Saracens lead 26-17 at London Welsh thanks to an unconverted Chris Ashton try, which means they now have a try-scoring bonus point.

    Elsewhere, Stevie McColl scores for Gloucester to make it 21-13 to Bath at the Rec at half-time.

    Meanwhile London Irish are beating Wasps 22-18, and Harlequins are 16-11 up at Newcastle Falcons at the break.

  67. Half-time

    Exeter Chiefs 15-11 Sale Sharks

    It's been tight and tense at times, but we've had three tries in an engrossing game. Exeter made all the early running, racing into a 8-0 lead, but Sale's defensive effort and front-foot ball for Danny Cipriani has helped them get back into this.

    It was a frantic end to the half as the Sharks were pressing close to the line, and when the ball was spilled Exeter's Jack Nowell fancied a dart upfield but it all fizzed out.

  68. Half-time

    Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints

    Well that was not the first half Leicester would have been hoping for after Jordan Crane's early try.

    Richard Cockerill will be disappointed at the number of penalties his team conceded against a Northampton side which is lacking most of their star names.

    With Exeter and Saracens both winning at the break, Tigers are now outside the play-off places in fifth as things stand, having started the day in third.

  69. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints

    Both sets of players look exhausted as the game settles down with a series of scrums on the half-way line.

    This East Midlands derby has lacked a bit of quality at times, but Leicester will be looking for a better second-half performance.

  70. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints

    Leicester Tigers

    Leicester are camped in Northampton's half but can't find a way through and Freddie Burns is eventually penalised for coming in at the side five metres from the try-line.

    That was a great chance for Richard Cockerill's men to score their second try of the game but more indiscipline has cost them.

    Five minutes to go until half-time.

  71. Around the grounds

    Saracens still have a four-point lead at the Madejski after exchanging quick tries with London Welsh. The score is 21-17 in favour of Mark McCall's side.

    Mako Vunipola crossed under the posts for Saracens before Chris Elder replied straight from the restart.

    And London Irish have added an unconverted Chris Noakes try to take their lead over Wasps to 19-12.

  72. Try (Nowell, Steenson con, 37 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 15-11 Sale Sharks

    Immediate response from Exeter to Sale's try and this is well worked.

    After breaking the line through some crash runners, the ball is moved onto England winger Jack Nowell, who steps inside a challenge on the left side to touch down.

    Low and behold, the Chiefs are back into the play-off spots!

  73. Around the grounds

    Sam Burgess

    Bath have extended their lead against Gloucester. They're now 21-8 up at The Rec thanks to Sam Burgess, who has touched over for their third try of the afternoon.

    Meanwhile, Harlequins now lead 13-11 at Newcastle Falcons after a try from Nick Evans.

  74. Try (Beaumont, missed con Cipriani, 33 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 8-11 Sale Sharks

    This has been coming from Sale, who are upsetting the form book at Sandy Park.

    They work through the phases before launching a long, looping pass out wide where, for some reason, number eight Josh Beaumont is lurking. He then shows remarkable pace for a man of 6ft 7in and from 25 metres out beats the chasing Exeter backs to touch down.

    As things stand, Exeter have just slipped out of the play-off places.

  75. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints

    Leicester Tigers

    Plenty of errors coming from Leicester Tigers now. Freddie Burns tries to launch a pass out wide but it bounces off the chest of Jordan Crane and away.

    Scrum to Northampton. The players are taking a quick drinks break, time for everyone to get their breath back after an intense opening half hour.

  76. Post update

    Exeter Chiefs 8-6 Sale Sharks

    There is a muted atmosphere around Sandy Park at the moment, and that's because Exeter have seen little of the ball since Ian Whitten's opener.

    Sale's forwards are on top, driving Exeter back at pretty much every scrum so far, and there seems a nervous energy within the black shirts of the hosts.

  77. Around the grounds

    Sailosi Tagicakibau scores an unconverted try for Wasps, who are now just two points behind at London Irish, with the Exiles leading 14-12.

    Wasps still lie sixth, as things stand.

    Meanwhile, London Welsh have reduced the deficit against play-off chasing Saracens with a penalty - it's now 10-14 at the Madejski.

  78. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints

    And that's yet another penalty conceded by the hosts.

    Lock Graham Kitchener is penalised for having his hands on the ball this time and it means Saints can launch another attack.

    The home crowd are not too happy with what they've seen in the last 10 minutes.

  79. Penalty (Wilson)

    Leicester Tigers 8-9 Northampton Saints

    Northampton are ahead for the first time this afternoon and it's another silly penalty conceded by Tigers.

    Matthew Tait is penalised for having his hands on the floor and James Wilson kicks another three points from the tee.

    That's five penalties given away so far by Leicester. They can't afford to lose their discipline here.

  80. Penalty (Cipriani)

    Exeter Chiefs 8-6 Sale Sharks

    A break in play in the beaming sunshine and the water boys run on with well-earned drinks.

    After dominating the opening 10 minutes, Exeter have found themselves on the back foot and Sale have had a succession of attacking scrums inside Chiefs territory.

    The hosts concede another penalty from the scrum and Danny Cipriani slots an easy kick for Steve Diamond's side.

  81. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 8-6 Northampton Saints

    Well it's taken just over 20 minutes but we've finally had our first flashpoint of the game and both sets of players are clashing in the middle of the pitch.

    It's all calmed down in a few seconds though and Northampton are attacking.

  83. Around the grounds

    David Strettle has crossed in the corner for Saracens, who now have the lead at London Welsh. It's 14-7 at the Kassam as Owen Farrell converts.

    Saracens are now missing out on the play-offs by a single point, as things stand.

    Leicester Tigers 8-6 Northampton Saints

    Leicester are back within a few metres of the try-line after Freddie Burns punts a superb kick along the ground and into touch.

    Line-out to Northampton.

  85. Penalty (Cipriani)

    Exeter Chiefs 8-3 Sale Sharks

    Danny Cipriani

    Sale are on the board through England fly-half Danny Cipriani, who strokes the ball over from pretty much right in front of the posts.

    The visiting pack have been on top over the past few phases, winning a succession of penalties. Game on here.

  86. Penalty (Wilson)

    Leicester Tigers 8-6 Northampton Saints

    Leicester's New Zealand lock Brad Thorn is caught offside inside his side's 22 and gives away a penalty.

    His fellow countryman James Wilson steps up and slots home the easiest of penalties to reduce the deficit to two points.

  87. Around the grounds

    Wasps are behind again after an Alex Lewington try makes it 14-7 to London Irish at the Madejski.

    And Bath have come from behind to now lead Gloucester 14-5, with George Ford grabbing his first Premiership try of the season.

  88. Post update

    Exeter Chiefs 8-0 Sale Sharks

    Sale finally have some possession and they've looked bright with ball in hand.

    A bulldozing run from number eight Josh Beaumont sets the visitors up in the 22 before they conceded a penalty - and then a bright backs move was ended through a Danny Cipriani knock on.

  89. Try (Crane, missed con Burns, 13 mins)

    Leicester Tigers 8-3 Northampton Saints

    Jordan Crane

    Following a sustained spell of pressure, Tigers have the first try of the game and it's Jordan Crane.

    The big number eight does well to catch the ball close to the touchline and drives over in the corner.

    Freddie Burns misses a difficult conversion, but Leicester will be pleased they've made their dominance count on the scoreboard.

  90. Around the grounds

    Wasps, who are hoping for a place in the top six, have drawn level away at London Irish, as Guy Thompson cancels out Andrew Fenby's try to make it 7-7.

    Meanwhile, Nic Reynolds and London Welsh have also pulled things back to 7-7 at home to play-off hopefuls Saracens.

  91. Penalty (Wilson)

    Leicester Tigers 3-3 Northampton Saints

    Leicester's Dan Cole concedes a penalty for an infringement in the scrum and James Wilson kicks it over from in front of the posts.

    A man of Cole's experience should have known better there.

  92. Around the grounds

    Play-off-chasing Saracens lead 7-0 at London Welsh thanks to Billy Vuniploa's converted try.

    Elsewhere, an unconverted Lewis Ludlow try has given Gloucester the lead at Bath.

    And Newcastle Falcons lead Harlequins 5-3 after Richard Mayhew crossed early on.

  93. Try (Whitten, missed con Steenson, 10 mins)

    Exeter Chiefs 8-0 Sale Sharks

    It's been all Exeter in the opening 10 minutes and their pressure has told.

    After a succession of pick and drives from the forwards, Gareth Steenson decides to spread the play and Jack Nowell, after bursting into the line, feeds Ian Whitten, who crosses out wide.

  95. Penalty (Burns)

    Leicester Tigers 3-0 Northampton Saints

    Freddie Burns settles some early nerves for Tigers as he slots home an easy penalty after Northampton's James Craig gave it away for coming in at the side.

    Just the start Leicester would have wanted in their push for a play-off spot.

  96. Post update

    Leicester Tigers 0-0 Northampton Saints

    Leicester are certainly on the front foot in these early stages. Northampton number eight Sam Dickinson concedes a penalty just inside Saints half.

    Freddie Burns kicks it into the corner.

  97. Penalty (Steenson)

    Exeter Chiefs 3-0 Sale Sharks

    Gareth Steenson

    After two early penalties, Exeter decide to kick the second one and Gareth Steenson makes no mistake from dead centre of the pitch.

    Sale have barely touched the ball in the opening stages - the hosts have made a bright start.

  98. Kick-off

    Exeter Chiefs v Sale Sharks (15:30 BST)

    No clouds in sight on a glorious afternoon in Devon at Sandy Park, as Exeter and Salerun out into the bright sunshine.

    After leading out the Sharks last week on his final home appearance, Mark Cueto lets club captain Dan Braid do the honours as usual today.

    A huge roar greats Cheifs skipper Dean Mumm and his side as they look to secure a play-off place for the first time in their history.

  101. We've got it covered

    BBC Sport

    Kick off is now less than five minutes away - how're the nerves everyone?!

    The good news is, as well as following our live text feed, you can also listen to radio commentary on each of this afternoon's Premiership matches by clicking the 'Live Coverage' tab at the top of this page.

  102. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    Billy Vunipola

    Breaking up the Bath and Wasps monopoly is Saracens number eight Billy Vunipola, who's had another fine campaign at Allianz Park.

    Having already racked up 17 England caps by the tender age of 22, alongside brother Mako he is a major reason the Sarries pack continues to be so formidable.

    But can Mark McCall's side do enough this afternoon to extend his season by two more matches? We'll find out soon enough!

  103. Team news

    Bath v Gloucester (15:30 BST)

    Bath will field a near-enough full-strength side for the visit of West Country rivals Gloucester, despite having already secured second place.

    The Cherry and Whites, by contrast, have made 12 changes and include eight academy players in their matchday squad.

    Bath: Watson; Rokoduguni, Devoto, Eastmond, Banahan; Ford, Stringer; James, Webber, Wilson, Attwood, Day, Burgess, Louw (capt), Houston. Replacements: Batty, Auterac, Thomas, Garvey, Fearns, Cook, Agulla, Homer.

    Gloucester: Cook; Reynolds, Purdy, Macken, McColl; Thomas, Braley; Wood (capt), Lutui, Knight, Hicks, Hudson, Stooke, Thomas, Ludlow. Replacements: Dawidiuk, Gibbons, Thomas, Underhill, Rowan, Robson, Evans, Atkinson.

  104. Post update

    Bath v Gloucester (15:30 BST)

    Sam Burgess

    One fixture that is in danger of getting lost in amongst all the play-off furore is the West Country derby between Bath and Gloucester at The Rec.

    The Blue, Black and Whites already have second place and a home semi-final wrapped up, but for now they're looking no further than Saturday's grudge match.

    "The derbies are fantastic," Bath flanker Sam Burgess told BBC Points West. "For me as an outsider coming in they're great to be a part of.

    "We'll play the semi-final when it comes around but for now we're not looking too much further than Gloucester."

  105. Team news

    London Irish v Wasps (15:30 BST)

    London Irish have recalled Darren Allinson and Dan Leo for the visit of European Champions Cup hopefuls Wasps.

    England lock Joe Launchbury is back in Dai Young's starting line-up.

    London Irish: Fenby; Lewington, Griffin, Geraghty (capt), Short; Noakes, Allison; Court, Paice, Palframan; Leo, Sinclair, Narraway, Cowan, Guest. Replacements: Stevens, Smallbone, Aulika, Curry, Treviranus, Watson, Sheridan, Short.

    Wasps: Masi; Wade, Daly, Leiua, Tagicakibau; Goode, Davies; Mullan, Lindsay, Cittadini, Launchbury, Gaskell, Johnson, Haskell (capt), Thompson. Replacements: McIntyre, Taylor, Myall, Jones, Young, Weepu, Lozowski, Miller.

  106. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    Jonathan Joseph

    A former London Irish player, Bath centre Jonathan Joseph sprung into the public consciousness during an eye-catching Six Nations campaign for England which included a stunning try against Wales on the opening night.

    However, those who watch the 24-year-old regularly at The Rec will tell you he's been putting performances in like that for some time.

    Joseph has scored seven Premiership tries for Bath this season and his partnership with Kyle Eastmond in the centres could take them to a first Premiership title since 1996.

  107. Making a beeline for Europe

    London Irish v Wasps (15:30 BST)

    Dai Young

    As alluded to earlier, there aren't just places in the end-of-season play-offs at stake today, but a spot at Europe's top table too.

    As it stands, sixth-placed Wasps are in pole position to secure a slot in next season's European Champions Cup, with two points against London Irish enough for Dai Young's side.

    "Whether our season has been a success or not boils down to one game now," he said. "It's a proper cup final for us. We know what we have to do."

    If they don't do what they need to do, Sale Sharks will be waiting in the wings.

    So, as we've just mentioned there, the retiring Tom May, third on the Premiership's all-time appearance list, will make his final London Welsh appearance today.

    Saracens welcome England fly-half Owen Farrell back to their side, while captain Alistair Hargreaves also returns.

    London Welsh: Jewell; Awcock, Reynolds, May (capt), Elder; Barkley, Lewis; Aholelei, Britton, Gilding, McNally, Corker, West, Waters, Fonua. Replacements: Morris, Trevett, Cooper, Browne, Thorpe, Rowley, Robinson, Stegmann.

    Saracens: Goode; Ashton, Bosch, Wyles, Strettle; Farrell, de Kock; M Vunipola, Brits, du Plessis, Kruis, Hargreaves (capt), Wray, Burger, B Vunipola. Replacements: George, Gill, Figallo, Itoje, Brown, Wigglesworth, Hodgson, Taylor.

  110. A fond farewell, part two

    London Welsh v Saracens (15:30 BST)

    Tom May

    Like Mark Cueto, London Welsh centre Tom May will bring his 17-year playing career to an end this afternoon.

    The 36-year-old, formerly of Newcastle Falcons and Northampton Saints, won two caps for England.

    "It's going to be strange waking up on Monday morning and not having a job," May told BBC Radio Oxford.

    "I'm trying to enjoy every last session and approach the game in a positive manner. I think it'll be on my mind. I'll try to put it to the back of my mind and enjoy the occasion."

  111. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    Nathan Hughes

    Like team-mate Elliot Daly, Nathan Hughes has been one of the driving forces behind Wasps' push for honours this season.

    The Fijian back-rower, who has talked in the past about qualifying to play for England, has scored seven tries for Wasps in only his second Premiership campaign.

    It hasn't been all plain sailing for the 23-year-old, after he was banned for three weeks for his part in an incident that led to Northampton's George North being knocked unconscious in March - but he was later cleared of any wrongdoing and the ban was overturned on appeal.

  112. Team news

    Leicester Tigers v Northampton Saints (15:30 BST)

    Ed Slater and Christian Loamanu make their first Premiership starts of the season for Leicester Tigers, with George Parling injured and Seremaia Bai suspended.

    Northampton Saints, with top spot already secured, have made 13 changes to the side that beat London Welsh a week ago.

    Leicester Tigers: Morris; Goneva, Tait, Loamanu, Thompstone; Burns, Ben Youngs (capt); Mulipola, Tom Youngs, Cole, Thorn, Kitchener, Slater, Salvi, Crane. Replacements: Thacker, Ayerza, Balmain, De Chaves, Gibson, Harrison, Bell, Roberts.

    Northampton Saints: Tuala; Elliott, Waldouck, Stephenson, Collins; Wilson, Dickson; Corbisiero, Haywood, Ma'afu, Dickinson, Craig, Dowson (capt), Harrison, Fisher. Replacements: Hartley, Waller, Denman, Day, Nutley, Fotuali'i, Oliver, Packman.

  113. Post update

    London Welsh v Saracens (15:30 BST)

    Thomas Waldrom

    According to full-back Alex Goode, Saracens are "a bit annoyed" at themselves that they're still stuck in the midst of a play-off fight this afternoon.

    Mark McCall's side were heading for a top-four spot at 20-17 up against Exeter a week ago, but Thomas Waldrom's late try is the reason we're all here today trying to work out what's what.

    "We've still got a good chance of going through," Goode told BBC London 94.9.

    "You have to look at it as though Leicester will win and Exeter will win, and win well, so all we can concentrate on is putting a big performance in."

  114. A fond farewell

    Exeter Chiefs v Sale Sharks (15:30 BST)

    Mark Cueto

    Whatever the result at Sandy Park today, there is one man who definitely won't be coming back for more.

    Sale Sharks and former England winger Mark Cueto is set to end his professional rugby union career against Exeter Chiefs, 14 years after making his debut for his hometown club.

    Earlier this week, he opened up to BBC Sport about his Premiership try-scoring record, what he plans to do next and that disallowed try in the World Cup. Please do click here to tuck in!

  115. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    George Ford

    In amongst a generation of talented English fly-halves, the diminutive figure of George Ford has stood out above the rest this season.

    The 22-year-old replaced the injured Owen Farrell during last year's autumn internationals and has not looked back since, starring in England's Six Nations campaign and since going on to make the national number 10 shirt his own.

    Ford, son of Bath head coach Mike, has also kicked 175 points in 13 Premiership appearances for the Blue, Black and Whites this season.

  116. Team news

    Newcastle Falcons v Harlequins (15:30 BST)

    Scotland international Mike Blair captains Newcastle Falcons, while Tom Catterick returns at fly-half following illness.

    Harlequins make seven changes to the side which lost to Bath last week, as prop Darryl Marfo makes their last appearance for the club.

    Newcastle Falcons: Hammersley, Tait, Powell, Socino, Alesna Tuilagi; Catterick, Blair (capt); Fry, Lawson, Brookes, Green, MacLeod, Mayhew, Wilson, Kolo'ofai. Replacements: McGuigan, Vickers, Rogers, Witty, Saull, Tipuna, Andy Tuilagi, Kibirige.

    Harlequins: Lindsay-Hague, Yarde, Marchant, Sloan, Walker; Evans, Care (capt), Marfo, Ward, Shields, Merrick, Matthews, Chisholm, Clifford, Talei. Replacements: Gray, Buchanan, Adeniran-Olule, Twomey, Trayfoot, Dickson, Botica, Williams.

    Exeter Chiefs v Sale Sharks (15:30 BST)

    Exeter Chiefs welcome England wing Jack Nowell back to the side, with Byron McGuigan replaced at full-back.

    Steve Diamond has named the same Sale Sharks starting XV than beat Newcastle last week, with Mark Easter the only change on the bench.

    Exeter Chiefs: Nowell; Whitten, Slade, Hill, Jess; Steenson, Chudley; Moon, Cowan-Dickie, Francis, Mumm (capt), Lees, Armand, White, Waldrom. Replacements: Yeandle, Rimmer, Brown, Welch, Horstmann, Lewis, Bodilly, McGuigan.

    Sale Sharks: Arscott; Brady, Leota, Tuitupou, Cueto; Cipriani, Cusiter; Lewis-Roberts, Taylor, Cobilas, Mills, Hines, Braid (capt), Seymour, Beaumont. Replacements: Jones, Harrison, Parker, Paterson, Easter, Cliff, Ford, Hayley.

    Leicester Tigers v Northampton Saints (15:30 BST)

    Dylan Hartley

    "It's the biggest derby game in the Premiership by a country mile."

    Richard Cockerill's words, not mine. But it's certainly up there, isn't it?

    Leicester Tigers v Northampton Saints is always a fixture to look out for - even more so when there's a play-off spot riding on it.

    "It is a huge game full stop," Tigers boss Cockerill told BBC East Midlands Today. "If they beat us they knock us out. There will be a full house at Welford Road and we have a proud record. We need to get it right."

  120. Who is your Premiership player of the season?

    Elliot Daly

    To help you decide where your vote is going this afternoon, we're going to be talking you through each of the candidates included on the Premiership's shortlist.

    We'll start by looking at the form of Elliot Daly, who's played a big role in Wasps finishing back inside the top six and automatically qualifying for a place in the European Champions Cup next season.

    The 22-year-old, capped four times by England Saxons but not yet by the full side, has impressed at centre this year, scoring five tries in 19 league appearances.

    The Premiership Player of the Month for March should have done enough to force his way into Stuart Lancaster's 45-man World Cup training squad, which will be announced on Wednesday.

  121. Post update

    Exeter Chiefs v Sale Sharks (15:30 BST)

    Rob Baxter

    Speaking of Exeter Chiefs, Rob Baxter's side find themselves on the cusp of achieving their first-ever play-off place today.

    Their fate is likely to depend on results elsewhere, but don't expect Baxter to spend his afternoon glued to his phone trying to find out what's going on at Welford Road and the Kassam Stadium.

    "We'll be aware of the other scores, but I almost don't want to waste my energy on thinking about those things," he told BBC Radio Devon.

    "Making a decision on chasing points is absolutely irrelevant if we don't win the game. We have to be in the lead for those things to matter."

  122. Talking the talk

    Steve Diamond and Mark McCall

    "When people are most desperate, they say the most desperate things."

    Ah, yes, a final-day showdown just wouldn't be the same without some good, old fashioned smack talk in the build up, would it?

    Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond, speaking above, and Saracens counterpart Mark McCall have been enjoying a proper ding dong in the media this week, after McCall chose to question the Sharks' motivation for their trip to fellow play-off chasers Exeter Chiefs.

    "All they've got to do is beat London Welsh like everybody else has done, it's ridiculous," Diamond told BBC Sport in response. "I think he is disappointed that his own motivation isn't good enough to get that Harlem Globetrotter team to beat a really good, workman side like Exeter."

    Why don't you tell us what you really think, Steve.

  123. The play-off picture

    What Saracens need

    Saracens
    • If Saracens win and either Leicester or Exeter fail to do so, Mark McCall's team will secure a top-four place.
    • If Sarries and Exeter both achieve the same result, Saracens must better Exeter's margin of victory by four or more points to leapfrog them.
  124. The play-off picture

    What Exeter Chiefs need

    Exeter Chiefs
    • If Exeter Chiefs better Leicester's result against Northampton, they will be guaranteed a play-off spot.
    • If Exeter and Saracens both win, the Chiefs will definitely be in the play-offs providing their margin of victory is no more than two points less than Sarries'.
  125. The play-off picture

    What Leicester Tigers need

    Leicester Tigers
    • Leicester Tigers will secure a play-off place if they match or better the result of Exeter Chiefs and/or Saracens.
    • If Leicester win without a bonus point and Exeter and Saracens both win with bonus points, Richard Cockerill's side will still finish third because they will have accumulated more victories, which takes precedence over points difference in the league table.
  126. How it stands

    Premiership table

    So, this is how the top half of the Premiership table is looking heading into the final round of fixtures.

    We already know that Northampton Saints will finish top, that Bath are guaranteed a home semi-final in the play-offs and that, at the other end, poor old London Welsh have been relegated.

    It's also worth pointing out that seventh-placed Sale Sharks, not shown on this graphic, are four points adrift of Wasps and still with an outside chance of securing a spot in next year's European Champions Cup.

    However, this afternoon we'll be focusing primarily on the three-way tussle for those remaining two play-off spots, so please excuse us while we get our calculators out...
