  1. The best of the best

    Saracens v Leicester (12:30 BST)

    The end of the regular season brings a time of reflection. A chance to rest. A time to look back on the campaign. And a chance to delve into some stats.

    And it is not just the top teams that dominate here. For example, Newcastle's Mark Wilson finished top of the tackle charts. Worcester's Chris Pennell made the most metres with ball in hard. And Sale's Bryn Evans was the top line-out stealer.

    And, when it comes to running with ball in hand, Leicester's winger is the joint best...

  3. A Leicester double?

    Leicester, lest we forget, is a city with a buzz about it at the moment.

    As the most successful side in England, the Tigers have been used to sporting bragging rights in the East Midlands but they have had to play second fiddle to the phenomenal story of Leicester City winning the Premier League this year.

    A win today though will see them 80 minutes away from continuing the feel-good factor around the city and, I'm sure, another excuse for a party.

  4. The men in charge

    Speaking of the Saracens boss, he's been giving his final thoughts ahead of kick-off along with his Leicester counterpart.

    Quote Message: We've got a really motivated bunch but we understand out mentality has to be spot on today. Our game is driven about how hard we work and how physical we are, and that's our focus." from Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall BT Sport

    Quote Message: It's a one off game. We know they're very good, but if you look at our line-up we're very good as well. For us, we're underdogs." from Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill BT Sport

    As well as being crowned the kings of Europe in the past seven days, it was a good week during awards season for Saracens.

    Full-back Alex Goode won the Premiership player of the season, Maro Itoje was named the best under-23 player and Mark McCall was crowned director of rugby of the year.

    The Sarries boss obviously remained in fully-focused mode at the awards do, unable to even crack a smile at his achievement.

    You may, or may not, have known that the England head coach Eddie Jones spent a day this week with his footballing counterpart Roy Hodgson ahead of their Euro 2016 preparations.

    With that in mind, who would you like to see feature for England in Australia this summer, that has so far not played much of a part under Jones? Thomas Waldrom? Freddie Burns? Will Fraser?

    Out of the last seven Premiership finals, Saracens and Leicester have won five of them.
