How to watch the Premiership Rugby Final live: stream Exeter Chiefs vs Saracens

Aviva Premiership Rugby Final – where and when

The Aviva Premiership Rugby Final is always exciting but this particular match could be taken to the next level. Exeter Chiefs are hoping to beat Saracens at Twickenham Stadium, West London to retain the title – making them the fourth side ever to do so.

You can live stream all the action from the big match on Saturday May 26. It starts at 3pm BST, 10am ET, 7am PT, 12am AEST.

It's been a long, hard season and the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final is what it all comes down to. It takes fifteen of the world's best players at the peak of their game and aims them at fifteen more, equally awesome players. The collision will, no doubt, be cataclysmic - and you can watch the whole thing with a live stream, even if it's not being shown where you live

Add to that the drama of this year where the Exeter Chiefs are hoping to retain their title against the Saracens. Yup, this win will make the Chiefs the fourth team ever to do this, joining the ranks alongside Leicester, Wasps and Saracens themselves. 

Since February, when Exeter lost to Wasps, they've not been defeated – that's ten games of pure winning. It won't be an easy final though as Saracens have won their last six visits to Twickenham Stadium and have been the Premiership Rugby Champions three times beating Leicester in 2011, Bath in 2015 and Exeter in 2016.

All that said, Exeter have won their last four matches against Saracens in all tournaments. So it's really anybody's guess who will take this title. So, how do you get to see all the nail-biting action? We've laid out exactly what you need to do to get a live stream below so you can simply click and enjoy.
