Alex Goode celebrates with his Saracens team-mates after scoring the crucial third try
Full-time: Brad Barritt launches the Aviva Premiership high into the air as Saracens break into celebration, with all the fireworks and champagne acustomed to such a great achievement. Are they the best team in the world? It's hard to argue against them, and they can now call themselves three-time Premiership champions as well as the kings of Europe.
Credit must go to Exeter too, as they were nothing short of brilliant in the second half and made a proper game of it. Reducing the lead to just three points made the closing minutes a real contest, only for Goode to decide the match with a crucial try.
