  7. 'It's agony'

    FT: Wasps 20-23 Exeter

    Wasps captain Joe Launchbury told BT Sport:

    "It's agony really watching it. One side are always going to come out on the wrong side and unfortunately that is us today.

    "We were happy how we came back into the game

    "We felt in the extra-time we had enough but the pressure told in the end. We need to come back next year and work harder."

  8. 'You can see what it meant'

    FT: Wasps 20-23 Exeter

    Exeter Chiefs centre Jack Nowell told BBC Radio 5 live:

    "You can see what it meant to the boys, we dug in, we said we'd play for 90-100 minutes. We wanted to make amends for last year.

    "We backed ourselves on our fitness, we don't work so hard to give up on 80 minutes, we knew Wasps would be great today, but we knew we'd go beyond 80 minutes.

    "We went through it last year, went through that, know how it feels and we gave our all.

    "It's the hard work we did at the start of the year and we want to play for each other. It means so much for all of us."

    FT: Wasps 20-23 Exeter

    Dai Young gathers his whole squad and backroom staff in a big circle on the Twickenham turf and passionately barks out his speech.

    Ash Green: Couldn't be at Twickenham but followed from Budapest... A lot of alcohol is going to be consumed tonight, what a result!

    Andrew Priestly: Gareth Steenson, nerves of steel. Exeter Chiefs are more than worthy Premiership champions after beating both Saracens and Wasps.

    Nick Hughes: Wasps spend all that money and sign big-name players but they still can't win when it matters. Fantastic

  11. Exeter are champions

    FT: Wasps 20-23 Exeter

    Rob Baxter

    In May 2007, Exeter had just finished their season fourth in the Championship as Leeds Tykes won promotion back to the top flight.

    10 years later they are the champions of England.

    After 14 years as a player, 10 years as captain and eight years as head coach at the Chiefs, there are few people that would begrudge Rob Baxter getting his hands on the trophy - he even looked as if a few tears were flowing at full-time.

  12. Exeter are champions

    FT: Wasps 20-23 Exeter

    Exeter fly-half Gareth Steenson told BT Sport:

    "It was such a tough game with the emotional highs and lows.

    "To be standing here where we were seven years ago is absolutely amazing - I can't take it in at the minute.

    "I was hoping we would get the try and it wouldn't come down to me kicking a goal.

    "I can't put it into words as the group have worked so hard all year."

    Exeter fans

    A titanic, memorable, absorbing final.

    Exeter's fairytale continues as the Chiefs are crowned the best side in England in the most dramatic style.

    Gareth Steenson the hero with the kick but what an effort from the whole squad.

    Superb game, Wasps, who finished top, will feel very hard done by.

    Wasps prop Matt Mullan has to receive some treatment. He is fine though and we set again.
