Leicester and Saracens go head-to-head in the Aviva Premiership final on Saturday, rekindling their rivalry following a classic encounter in last year's Twickenham showpiece.

On that occasion, Leicester prevailed 33-27 thanks to a 76th minute try from replacement centre Dan Hipkiss.

The Tigers are now gearing up for a seventh successive final and have their sights set on an eighth crown, with Wasps' record of three consecutive wins also within their grasp.

Despite losing last year's final, Sarries have this campaign completed their first league double over the Tigers, winning 26-20 at Vicarage Road back in October and 15-14 at Welford Road in March thanks to the boot of fullback Alex Goode.

Sarries are out for a maiden title and have previously won only one piece of silverware - the 1998 Tetley's Bitter Cup.
