Hannah Botterman – Champion!!

Huge congratulations to Hannah and Saracens being crowned champions of the Allianz Premier 15s, beating their West Country rivals Exeter in the final.

Saracens reached their fourth final in a row after finishing top of the league with 16 wins from 18 games and then overcame reigning champions Harlequins with a 30-10 win at the StoneX Stadium.

Exeter Chiefs, in just their second season in the Allianz Premier 15s, finished second place in the table to secure a home semi-final and scored a try in the closing minutes to beat Bristol Bears 28-24 at Sandy Park to reach their first ever final.

In their two meetings this season, Saracens won 32-19 in their round five meeting in London but in round 16 Exeter managed to inflict Sarries’ heaviest since the inception of the league with a 54-12 victory. 

Saracens enjoyed an emphatic 43-21 win over Exeter Chiefs in the final played in Worcester.
