  1. Saracens lift the trophy

    FT: Saracens 33-17 Harlequins

    Harlequins players are trudging up to collect their runners-up medals. Grim faces all around. This defeat has hurt.

    Over among the waiting Saracens, it is a very different scene.

    They stride up and Lotte Clapp lofts the big pot to a backdrop of pyro and cheers.

  2. 'Skill and character'

    FT: Saracens 33-17 Harlequins

    Philippa Tuttiett

    Former Wales international on BBC Radio 5 Live

    There is a bit of heartache for Harlequins because I don't think they brought everything they had to this final in the first half, but credit to Saracens because their accuracy in the first half was superb.

    It takes skill to win a league, but character to go back to back.

  3. Full-time

    Saracens 33-17 Harlequins

    Saracens retain their crown, courtesy of a first-half blitz full of accuracy and power.

  4. Penalty - Saracens 33-17 Harlequins

    Zoe Harrison

    A penalty goes Saracens way and Zoe Harrison is going to take her time despite it being bang in front...

    Over it goes.

  5. Post update

    Saracens 30-17 Harlequins

    Harlequins are running from the shadow of their own posts they are not going to go down with leaving it out there...

  6. Missed penalty

    Saracens 30-17 Harlequins

    Harrison drags her penalty wide of the posts, but Quins make a mess of a short 22m drop-out and are still under deep-sea level pressure.

  7. Post update

    Saracens 30-17 Harlequins

    Massive back slaps for El Perry as the Saracens prop goes digging and comes up with a massive turnover.

    The champions are getting a lid on this situation.

    Zoe Harrison is going to pot for the posts.

  8. Post update

    Saracens 30-17 Harlequins

    Emily Scott skips though a hole, one more pass to hand and Harlequins are surely in under the posts...

    Nope, Poppy Cleall, the last defender back, bets the house on an intercept and comes up cherries. A massive play from the Sarries vice captain.

  9. Post update

    Saracens 30-17 Harlequins

    The passes are sticking and the gaps are appearing for Harlequins.

    Vickii Cornborough, Leah Lyons and Tove Viksten combine to create a huge hole in midfield. But Khadidja Camara is bundled into touch as the ball is recycled.

  10. Converted try - Saracens 30-17 Harlequins

    Rachael Burford (con Scott)

    Rachael Burford burrows over and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Emily Scott lands the conversion and there is one side with the wind in their sails.

    And it is not the one which was 27 points clear at the break...

  11. Try review

    Saracens 30-10 Harlequins

    Rachael Burford is pretty sure she is over from short-range...

    The video official is just going to check the grounding.

  12. Post update

    Saracens 30-10 Harlequins

    Harlequins are building up some momentum with Tove Viksten powering up the blind and Vickii Cornborough also making yards.

    They are seven metres out from the Saracens' line.

  13. Post update

    Saracens 30-10 Harlequins

    Becky Grey

    BBC Sport at Franklin's Gardens

    Saracens scrum-half Georgie Gulliver, who is retiring from rugby, comes off to a big cheer. She's replaced by Emma Swords.

    There were tears from Gulliver as she trotted off. Marlie 'Water Carrier' Packer was right there to greet her with a massive bearhug.

  14. Post update

    Saracens 30-10 Harlequins

    Jess Breach with the ball in hand and a bit of room for the first time!

    The Harlequins wing is just about kept on a leash though by Sydney Gregson and, although she offloads to Khadidja Camara, the ball goes to ground from Leanne Riley.

  15. Replacement

    Saracens 30-10 Harlequins

    Ireland international Leah Lyons comes on for Davinia Catlin at hooker.

  16. Try - Saracens 30-10 Harlequins

    Vickii Cornborough

    Try's good!

    Harlequins have a score and just a glimmer of hope.

    Emily Scott breathes on the embers with a successful conversion.

    Could they?

  17. Try review

    Saracens 30-3 Harlequins

    Vickii Cornborough has got over in a thicket of limbs, but what is the grounding like?

    The referee is checking, with his video official wearing out the rewind button on his VCR.

    I'm not sure there is an angle that is going to help us...

  18. Post update

    Saracens 30-3 Harlequins

    Harlequins have had all the possession and territory since half-time.

    They have not got the champions cutting edge though.

    A scrum five for the south Londoners after replacement Tove Viksten runs into the referee...

  19. Post update

    Saracens 30-3 Harlequins

    Hannah Botterman emerges from the breakdown, slapping her hand against her chest!

    A mighty turnover right in the shadow of her own posts.

    A superb piece of defensive work by the Saracens talisman.
