Saracens created Aviva Premiership history at Twickenham as they beat Bath 28-16 to be crowned English champions for a second time in five years.

And in doing so, they became the first club since Premiership play-offs were introduced 12 years ago to lift silverware after finishing outside the top two following a 22-game regular season.

Bath 47-10 Leicester

Bath will meet Saracens in next Saturday's Aviva Premiership final after three Matt Banahan tries helped send them to Twickenham for the first time since 2004.

Three first-half touchdowns - all converted by fly-half George Ford - gave Bath a commanding lead, with centre Kyle Eastmond also breaching Leicester's defence following an early Banahan double.

Northampton 24-29 Saracens

Saracens emerged triumphant from a heavyweight showdown at Franklin's Gardens to advance into next Saturday's Aviva Premiership final with a 29-24 victory over Northampton.

A thunderous first half at Franklin's Gardens finished 13-13 and inevitably the remainder of the play-off was reduced to a war of attrition between the rival forwards and goalkickers.

Owen Farrell was composed.
