Aviva Premiership Rugby Final Live on BT Sport


This is it, the culmination of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Season as Saracens and Exeter Chiefs go head to head at Twickenham on Saturday for the chance to be crowned 2015-16 Champions.

The game kicks off at 3pm with live coverage starting at 2pm on BT Sport 1.

Saracens will be aiming to become the first team to defend their Aviva Premiership Rugby title since Leicester Tigers did so in 2010.

If they finish as victors, they would also become the first English side to achieve a Premiership Rugby and European top flight double in the same season. A feat last achieved by Wasps in 2004.

Mark McCall has the best winning percentage of any head coach in the history of Premiership Rugby. Saracens have won 99 of the 129 matches he has been in charge of for a 76.7% success rate.

Chiefs impressive rise sees them become the first club to make the Premiership Rugby Final who were not in the original dozen sides to make up the inaugural Premiership competition in the 1997-98 season.

Exeter have won 60% of the league and Premiership Rugby matches for which Rob Baxter has been head coach. His overall record in these competitions being won 101, drawn 6, lost 66.

Gilbert Golden Boot winner, Gareth Steenson has started all 23 of Chiefs' Aviva Premiership Rugby matches this season. He failed to finish only four of those games, missing only 34 possible minutes of playing time.

Saracens beat Exeter home and away in the regular season; in all three previous occasions that one finalist has beaten the other twice in the league, they have also gone on to win the third game and take the title.

Exeter finished runners up to Saracens after the regular season.  But five number two seeds have beaten the top of the table side in the final to lift the trophy.
