Using 360° cameras for the first ever time at the Final, we are giving fans the chance to be part of the celebrations with the Saracens players after winning a fantastic Final against Exeter Chiefs. The 360° film also shows what 120 school children from the Aviva Tackling Numbers programme experienced as they played tag rugby on the pitch at half-time.”
