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.

Matt Banahan got a hat-trick of tries.
