Owen Farrell scored seven penalties from seven as Saracens claimed their first European title.

The Aviva Premiership team won the Lyon final 21-9 against France's Racing 92. In a day of poor conditions in the French city, neither side looked like scoring any tries, in a game the kickers dominated.

Saracens have the chance for a domestic-European double later this month. They face the Leicester Tigers next weekend in the semi-finals and could face either Exeter or Wasps in the final later this month.
