Saracens eased past Gloucester 44-19 to advance to the Premiership Grand Final thanks to hat-trick from Nick Tompkins. Ben Morgan opened the scoring for Gloucester but they were 23-7 down at the break thanks to tries by Sean Maitland, Ben Spencer and Liam Williams.
Owen Farrell added eight points with the boot but the second half was all about Tompkins, whose hat-trick was completed within 16 minutes of the re-start. That ended the game as a contest, meaning Ruan Dreyer and Lewis Ludlam’s five-pointers were no more than consolations for the Cherry and Whites.

Tompkins was excited after the final whistle and suggested that the spirit in the Saracens camp helps them find a way to win. “We just try to get to a point that nothing will set us back, nothing will upset our energy – good or bad,” he told BT Sport.
“That energy is what gets us through each week. “Nothing brings us down. We found our rhythm in the later stages and didn’t let anything dictate how we felt.” Scrum-half Ben Spencer echoed those sentiments, adding: “We spoke a lot about physicality coming into this game and I thought our physicality was outstanding. “We probably didn’t get off to the best of starts conceding early like that, but credit to the boys for sticking at it for 80 minutes like they did.”
