Saracens won 57-15 a Ealing Trailfinders in the second leg of the final and was promoted to the Premiership after a year playing in the Championship. The historic English club returns to the top category after suffering an automatic decline due to irregularities in the salary cap.
Almost without breaking a sweat, the Sarries became Championship champions by defeating Ealing 60-0 in the first leg and 57-15 in the second leg in the final. In this last game of the season, Saracens appeared to start with the handbrake. An error of Wray in the first seconds, that ended up chosen as the figure of the party, that avoided the conquest but with infraction, gave Ealing the chance to start winning. This leadership on the scoreboard was maintained until the last minutes of the first half, when, through Mako Vunipola, the Sarries tied the game.
The second half was another story. Determined to finish with any minimum of illusion on the part of their rivals, the local team accelerated and took a difference of more than 40 points, and had the luxury of taking their figures with a little less than half an hour of play remaining.
Saracens returns to the Premiership after being automatically relegated by the English federation for ignoring warnings about salary cap irregularities. The storied club managed to maintain the hard core of its team and accommodate its finances to get back where it belongs.
