  1. To Sarries, the spoils


    Saracens celebrate with the Premiership trophy

    That's it for our coverage of the 2019 Premiership final.

    What a day it has been for Saracens, as they came from behind to win their fifth league title (a fourth in five years) and seal a second double.

    Exeter Chiefs finished top of the table but have to lick their wounds again after losing a second consecutive final to the north Londoners.

    The World Cup this autumn might have an impact as Saracens attempt to hold onto the trophy for a third year, but for now they will celebrate their latest triumph.

    Thanks for joining us - we'll do it all again in 2019-20.

  2. MucCall 'lucky' to be at Sarries

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Quote Message: It was a very different game and we were clearly second best in the first half. We huffed a bit in the second half and were feeling tired. Somehow they found a way not just to get back in the game but play superb rugby in the final 20 minutes. Once we got our noses in front we suffocated them and kept them at their end of the field. I am incredibly lucky to be part of this club. Without the previous finals I don't think we could have done what we did today from Mark McCall Saracens director of rugby on BT Sport

  3. 'Give Saracens credit'

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Quote Message: There was a lot of that game where we were in charge. We have to give Saracens full credit for how they came back at us. It hurts. We ahve stayed in task and stuck with what we have done. I am proud of the boys as we have had a good season but we fell at the last hurdle. from Jack Yeandle Exeter captain on BT Sport

    Exeter led 22-16 at the break and then 27-16 in the second half, but Saracens found the strength to come back and seal a domestic and European double.

  5. 'Remarkable achievement'

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Quote Message: We didn't start well and we gave them a chance and our best bits were when they scored. But we found a way, and that speaks volumes for the group. It's a remarkable achievement for everyone. To win the double is incredible. from Alex Goode Saracens full-back on BBC Radio 5 live

  6. Saracens lift trophy

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    The red-shirted Saracens players have all got their medals and dominate the stage on the pitch at Twickenham.

    Brad Barritt is the last man to receive his medal and lifts the trophy alongside Owen Farrell.

    Ticker-tape streamers and a few pyrotechnics accompany the celebrations as Saracens celebrate their fifth Premiership title.

  7. Sarries 'took shackles off'

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Quote Message: We definitely weren't up the scratch in the first 50 minutes or so. We knew we had a lot more in the locker so we're dead chuffed that we came out the other side. We had a good look at ourselves after one of those tries and thought we're going to take the shackles off and have a right dig at these. We're happy that we pulled it together, stopped sulking and got back in the swing of things. from George Kruis Saracens lock on BBC Radio 5 live

  8. Post update

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    The Exeter players are on their way across the stage picking up the runners-up medals.

    Jack Nowell is on crutches and there are some long faces in the Chiefs squad - beaten finalists for the second season in a row.

  9. Presentation time

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Saracens lift the Premiership trophy

    The Premiership trophy has been placed on a plinth on a stage in the middle of the Twickenahm pitch.

    It is almost time for the teams to be presented with their medals and for Saracens to lift the silverware.

  10. Barritt hails squad effort

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Quote Message: They are all new memories. For us, each is as special as the other and we know it is a full squad effort. We have had 46 players used and in the second half the boys were unbelievable. The medical staff worked hard with me and gave me a fighting chance. There is no quick success to anything and we never take opportunities for granted from Brad Barritt Saracens captain on BT Sport

  11. "Incredibly special"

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Matt Dawson

    Former England scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    They have taken domestic rugby to new level and every other club, every player and coach in Europe, is now aspiring to be like Saracens.

    How can they get themselves to a position where they can spend day of their lives like Saracens.

    They have got something incredibly special going on - you don't win games like that ordinarily.

  12. 'Leaders galvanised us'

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Quote Message: It is hard to put it into words. We were working towards this all year and it is a big credit to the staff and the team. It was a squad effort. Every year we have to dig a bit deeper. Exeter are a great side so fair play to them. We have some fantastic leaders in the team who managed to galvanise us and luckily we had enough time to rescue it. from Maro Itoje Saracens flanker on BT Sport

  13. Saracens secure double

    FT: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    What a final and what a comeback.

    Saracens were 11 points behind in that second half but dug deep and found a way to recover.

    Mark McCall's side seal a Premiership and European Champions Cup double for a second time.

    They did it in 2016 and three years later they have done it again.

  14. Record-breaking final

    Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Chris Jones

    BBC rugby union correspondent on BBC Radio 5 live

    We've smashed the record for points in a final - 65 was the record in 2006.

  16. Try: Exeter 34-37 Saracens

    Sam Hill, con J Simmonds

    Exeter have kicked to the corner for one final push.

    And they get a last-gasp try.

    The ball squirms miles past the line-out and Sam Hill is on hand to touch down.

    The clock is red, and Joe Simmonds adds a conversion that ultimately isn't enough.

  17. "Almost perfect"

    Exeter 27-37 Saracens

    Paul Grayson

    Former England fly-half on BBC Radio 5 Live

    We've seen them wobble, they almost looked out on their feet, but a bit like Tyson Fury when he just sat up out of nowhere, Saracens have sat bolt upright and wrestled the game away from Exeter Chiefs.

    Saracens, in the Championship minutes at the end of the game, have been almost perfect.

  18. Post update

    Exeter 27-37 Saracens

    Some mini-celebrations on the Saracens bench after that conversion.

    David Strettle is on for his farewell appearance for Sarries.

    Exeter need a miracle now.

  19. Try: Exeter 27-37 Saracens

    Jamie George, con Farrell

    Maro Itoje steals the ball from the line-out and gives Sarries possession and position.

    The north Londoners set up Jamie George to go in under the posts and that will surely be the winning score.

    Owen Farrell sets himself and slots over this kick.

  20. Post update

    Exeter 27-30 Saracens

    Exeter go for a bold line-out towards the back, Sam Skinner can't claim it and Saracens steal the ball...
