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

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.
