  • Full-time (AET): Saracens 20-24 Northampton

    100
  • CONVERSION, NORTHAMPTON, MYLER. 20-24. That's it.

    100
  • TRY, NORTHAMPTON, WALLER. 20-22. Saints have won it. A pick and go from replacement Alex Waller is given the green light by the TMO and they are champions. What a match we have witnessed at Twickenham. Wow.

    99
  • Northampton scrum 25 out because of a Wray fumble so is this their last chance? Remember, they will take the title if it's level at full-time of extra-time.

    98
  • Is Hodgson to turn from hero to villain though as he kicks the ball out on the full, giving the Saints an attacking line-out 25 metres out? However, Hartley's throw is stolen so Sarries survive as time ticks on.

    96
  • PENALTY, SARACENS, HODGSON. 20-17. There's the lead for Sarries as a deliberate slap down hands Hodgson a chance to push his side in front, which he takes.

    93
  • Ten minutes to go then and it is worth noting that if we remained tied up at Twickenham, Northampton would win as they've scored more tries (two) today.

    91
  • That's half-time in extra-time and there is still nothing separating these two heavyweight outfits.

    90
  • Close once again for Sarries as Wray is denied what looked like a try but we come back for obstruction from Vunipola on Dickinson. It is the correct call as we go back to near halfway for a Saints penalty.

    88
  • PENALTY, SARACENS, HODGSON. 17-17. We are level yet again as Northampton collapse the scrummage to gift Hodgson an opportunity for goal. He made no mistake.

    86
  • PENALTY, NORTHAMPTON, MYLER. 14-17. First blood to the Saints as Goode holds on in contact. Up stepped Myler from the tee with nerves of steel. Fine kick.

    84
  • Welcome back as Myler kicks-off extra-time and it's a poor clearance from Goode so a first chance for Northampton via the line-out about 30 metres out.

    81
  • We are going to extra-time at Twickenham as the full time whistle blows with the scores locked at 14-14. What a game and it's not over yet. Stay with us...

    80
  • Northampton survive, just, and it's Dickson with a vital turnover that leads to Wood kicking clear. Role reversal there. Just a minute remaining now.

    78
  • The momentum has definitely swung in favour of Saracens right now as a breakdown penalty sees Hodgson drill the ball into Northampton's half.

    76
  • So close from Hodgson as his effort hits the post!

    74
  • TRY, SARACENS, BOSCH. 14-14. This time they get it. It came from a five metre line-out as Sarries threw in before the numbers were created. Lovely offload from hooker Brits set up Bosch wide on the right.

    73
  • Replacement James Wilson clears his side's lines, but it's not for long as obstruction from Saints following their own line-out on halfway gifts the ball back to Saracens. It goes to the Saints 22.

    70
  • Still Saracens bang on the door but the Saints get out of the woods yet again, this time Hartley with great breakdown work saving his side just five out.

    69
  • And to make matters worse, Farrell hobbles off with cramp before replacement Charlie Hodgson is smashed by Lawes. Sarries scrum on halfway. It's not boring.
