Match Commentary

81'10-27 End of second half
80'Maro Itoje takes the restart and Spencer is able to boot the ball out to bring an end to an impressive performance from Saracens. Exeter had no answer to the north Londoners, who were on a different level. A potential injury to Farrell the only blip on a brilliant final victory.

71'10-22 Penalty goal - Ben Spencer , Saracens
71'Player substituted - Jamie George , Saracens
71'Substitute on - Chris Wyles , Saracens

65'Bad news for Saracens and potentially England as Farrell pulls up after taking the restart. He is doing everything he can to stay on but looks uneasy.
64'10-19 Conversion - Gareth Steenson , Exeter Chiefs
63'TRY! They didn't have to wait long. With Wyles taken off so George can come back on at hooker, the Chiefs get the ball out of the scrum and Steenson makes the most of their man advantage to get over.
63'8-19 Try - Gareth Steenson , Exeter Chiefs
62'Held up! Sam Simmonds finds half a gap but is unable to make it to the line. Stu Townsend has a dart from scrum-half and as the ball is recycled Dave Ewers gets over the line but cannot ground the ball.
62'Substitute on - Jamie George , Saracens
62'Player substituted - Chris Wyles , Saracens
60'Yellow card! Brits has had an impact, but it isn't the one he would have wanted. The Saracens hooker is sent to the sin bin as he helps his team collapse an Exeter drive illegally.
60'Yellow card - Schalk Brits , Saracens
59'Billy Vunipola's involvement in the match is over. Eddie Jones will be pleased he has come through almost an hour relatively unscathed.

49'3-19 Conversion - Owen Farrell , Saracens
47'TRY! Wyles again finishes off on the left wing as Saracens edge towards victory. That was another lovely team move, and the U.S. international has a brace on his final appearance for Saracens.
47'3-17 Try - Chris Wyles , Saracens
41'We're back underway at Twickenham, where Exeter really need to score next if they are to claw this back.
41'3-12 End of first half
40'Exeter penalised for collapsing a scrum and Farrell will have a chance to stretch the Saracens lead on the stroke of half-time.
40'3-12 Start of second half
40'Player substituted - Thomas Waldrom , Exeter Chiefs
40'Substitute on - Don Armand , Exeter Chiefs
39'Lachie Turner does well to cut out a Wyles grubber after Saracens had won back possession on halfway.
36'
36'Jack Nowell does brilliantly to scamper back and beat Wyles to Owen Farrell's grubber into the in-goal.
34'Saracens build possession up to the Chiefs 22 but Vincent Koch knocks on to hand Exeter a scrum.
31'Worrying signs for both teams with Don Armand and Billy Vunipola receiving treatment. Vunipola looks to be OK but Armand is off for an HIA. Huge cheer as Thomas Waldrom takes his place.
31'Player substituted - Don Armand , Exeter Chiefs
31'Substitute on - Thomas Waldrom , Exeter Chiefs
27'A rare mistake from Saracens as they lose a lineout inside the Chiefs 22.
23'Saracens build possession down the right wing but Goode's pass evades Maitland and sails into touch.

17'Sam SImmonds penalised for holding onto the ball and Saracens have a chance to clear their lines.

15'3-7 Conversion - Owen Farrell , Saracens
15'3-5 Try - Billy Vunipola , Saracens
12'Another mistake from Joe Simmonds as he fails to find touch by quite a distance. He was looking for the corner, but Alex Goode ended up taking the ball a way inside his in-goal area.
9'But he shanks it badly and it drifts well wide of the far upright.
8'Another spell of Exeter possession inside the Saracens half ends with Barnes awarding a second penalty in Joe Simmonds' range.
6'3-0 Penalty goal - Joe Simmonds , Exeter Chiefs
5'Exeter dominating possession and territory in the opening five minutes. The Chiefs are unable to find away into the Saracens 22 but do the get the penalty and with it the chance to open the scoring.
1'Wayne Barnes, in his 200th match as a Premiership referee, blows his whistle and we're underway.
1'The sides have finished their pre-match preparations, and the Chiefs fans are in good voice as their players jog back down the tunnel. Less than 15 minutes to go.
