Saracens not driven by 'payback' against Leicester

Chris Wyles
Wyles has played 26 times for Saracens this season

Saracens full-back Chris Wyles says his side's Premiership final with Leicester will not be a revenge mission.

This year's title decider on 28 May will be a repeat of last season's fixture, when the Tigers won 33-27.

"I wouldn't call it payback, I think it's an absolutely mouth-watering fixture for us," 27-year-old Wyles told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"We look forward to it, we know Leicester are an extremely strong team with all the experience in the world."

Saracens go into the clash on a run of 12 straight wins and having inflicted Leicester's last domestic defeat, a 15-14 victory at Welford Road back in March.

USA international Wyles, who played the full 80 minutes in Sunday's narrow semi-final victory over Gloucester, added a victory over the reigning champions next Saturday would be the most rewarding way of claiming the Premiership title.

"I think that's what finals are all about, we want to play against the best and we want to win against the best," he said.

"We'll have two strong weeks of training, a final push. We want to be mentally switched on."
