  1. Goodbye

    That's all from us. You can follow all the reaction to today's Premiership matches on the BBC Sport website shortly.

    The big news from today - Bristol will be a Championship side in 2017-18 following their defeat by Wasps.

    What have we got coming up this week? Well, just the small matter of an announcement on Wednesday...

    Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend.

    FT: Northampton 25-27 Saracens

    Saracens looked down and out midway through the second half, but have pulled themselves together, with the help of more experienced replacements, to keep their hopes of a home semi-final alive.

    For Saints, it's a gutting defeat but they still move up a place into sixth with their losing bonus point.

    Northampton 25-27 Saracens

    Saracens delight. Northampton heartbreak.

  4. Post update

    Northampton 25-27 Saracens

    Saracens might well have just won it!

    A move started by a great break by Alex Lozowski, continued by Jackson Wrap and finished off by Marcelo Bosch in the left-hand corner, with team-mates on his overlap.

    Lozowski's conversion puts Saracens ahead for the first time in the match.

  5. Try (Bosch)

    Northampton 25-25 Saracens

  6. Penalty (Lozowski)

    Northampton 25-20 Saracens

    Saracens win a penalty in a kickable position, and rather than going for the corner and a try, Alex Lozowski kicks for goal.

    A five-point game with four minutes to go. This could be rather exciting...

  7. Post update

    Northampton 25-17 Saracens

    Saracens are so close to breaking through again but Ben Foden intercepts Billy Vunipola's pass to Chris Ashton, who would surely have been in for a clear try.

    Vital, that, from Foden.

    FT: Bristol 21-36 Wasps

    Bristol had a very encouraging first half and finished with a flurry, but Wasps had a 20-minute period in the second half where they swept the hosts aside.

    The Premiership leaders scored six tries in all, while the hosts were only one score short of a bonus-point of their own, which would still not have been enough to save them.

  9. Post update

    Northampton 25-17 Saracens

    A gift of a try for Chris Ashton - who some are tipping as a wildcard for the Lions tour.

    A quick penalty off a scrum brings Saracens within inches of the line on the right wing, and they use the short side, where Ashton is, to score.

    Conversion missed. This game not over, though.

  10. Full-time

    Bristol 21-36 Wasps

    Bristol are relegated to the Championship.

  11. Try (Ashton)

  12. Post update

    Bristol 21-36 Wasps

    It's a break which goes almost the length of the pitch, and Nick Fenton-Wells is on the end of it to go over.

    Billy Searle converts for Bristol - it's a nice moment but it's unfortunately not going to be enough to save them.

  13. Try (Fenton-Wells)

    Bristol 19-36 Wasps

  14. Post update

    Northampton 25-12 Saracens

    Pisi

    Both sides are really going for this now. We just had an exhausting passage of play where both tried the running rugby.

    After that, Dylan Hartley leaves the field. His try, couple with Ken Pisi's (above) have put Saints in control at the moment.

  15. Post update

    Bristol 14-36 Wasps

    For a while it looked like Bristol had folded but fair play to them, that Jack O'Connell score has stemmed the flow for now.

    This game is not the reason they're going down, though some of the same problems remain.

    It's got a bit stop-start on the pitch, but I'm sure there's still time for a try or two...

  16. Post update

    Northampton 25-12 Saracens

    Billy Vunipola is on the pitch for Saracens, and much to the delight of Saints fans, gives away two quick penalties.

    He's then given a talking to by the referee for some backchat, before going on to try to wind up the crowd. Not a good entrance to the match.

  17. Post update

    Bristol 14-36 Wasps

    Take a bow Tusi Pisi - that was a top-notch offload from the Samoan, which puts Jack O'Connell in for a consolation try.

    The replacement dives over in style and Billy Searle converts for Bristol.

    Bristol still need two more tries and at least 16 more points in all to avoid being relegated in the next 15 minutes.

  18. Try (O'Connell)

    Bristol 12-36 Wasps

  19. Post update

    Bristol 7-36 Wasps

    It's a shame to see Bristol's stay in the Premiership end this way, as Wasps are now running riot.

    Josh Bassett has his second try of the game and the visitors have their sixth in all - he strolled over the line after a clever pass from Alapati Leiua.

    Danny Cipriani's conversion is missed, but the atmosphere inside Ashton Gate is now very flat - the fans need a spark from Bristol to get them going.

  20. Post update

    Northampton 25-12 Saracens

    Superb try by Northampton Saints, who look like they are getting into a groove.

    Saints move left to right and Rory Hutchinson passes out to Ahsee Tuala, who looked to be running into touch but somehow hooked the ball back to Ken Pisi, over a defender, to run home.

    Harry Mallinder's conversion attempt is.... erm.... not good.
