North Londoners beat Exeter Chiefs 27-10 in final at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday

Brent-born Alex Lozowski was delighted to win his first Aviva Premiership title with Saracens on Saturday.

The north Londoners regained English rugby’s top prize after beating defending champions Exeter Chiefs 27-10 at a sun-drenched Twickenham Stadium.

And the 24-year-old felt the title victory was well deserved, especially after Sarries overcame a horrid period before Christmas when losing seven successive games in the Premiership and European Champions Cup.

“It’s unbelievable,” said the versatile back, who now joins up with the England squad for their three-match Test series in South Africa which starts on June 9.

“I’m just trying to take it all in really. It’s just nice to be there with the lads who all worked really hard for this, not only today but all season.

“It’s a reward for an awful lot of hard work that has gone in from not just the guys, but so many people at Saracens and we’re delighted.

“We were in a difficult period where we couldn’t get a win. We were doing a lot of things right but it wasn’t happening for us.

“The characters we’ve got in the changing room and at the club, we were always confident we would be alright.

“We stuck together and we really did, especially when we went away to Clermont Auvergne in the European Champions Cup.

“We lost that game, but it felt it was a bit of a turning point for us and since then we did pretty well so everyone in that changing room is just absolutely happy.”
