Top spot for Sarries

Owen Farrell finished with a 13-point haul

Saracens' hard-fought 23-14 victory over Bath at Allianz Park ensured they finished top of the Aviva Premiership at the end of the regular season.

The home side were nowhere near their best but still did enough to secure a home semi-final against Northampton next weekend.

Chris Ashton, Mako Vunipola and Owen Farrell scored tries for the hosts, with the rest of their points coming from the boot of Farrell.

Rob Webber and Horacio Agulla crossed for Bath, with Tom Heathcote converting both.
