Saracens 23 Bath Rugby 14
Saracens were 23-14 winners against Bath at Allianz Park on Saturday - a win that means the club finished in first place in the Premiership table for the first time in their history.
The victory also sets up a home semi-final against Northampton Saints on Sunday 12th May, kick off 3pm.
Saracens got off to a flying start when the forward pack pulled in Bath defenders in their 22 and Neil de Kock spotted Chrtis Ashton out wide and he raced in to score.
Another catch and drive ended with Schalk Brits peeling off the back of a maul and he popped the ball up for Mako Vunipola to score.
Bath were still in the hunt at at half time after Rob Webber crashed over but after the break, a third try from Owen Farrell after a great break from De Kock gave the home side the advantage.
Horatio Agulla's try on the hour kept Bath in the hunt, but a Farrell penalty settled the nerves and pulled the home side clear and sealed the win.
