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.

Batty joined Bath from Newcastle in 2010 and has played 55 league games for the West Country outfit.
