Saracens vs. Northampton: Key Battles That Will Shape Aviva Premiership Final

Stuart Lancaster will watch this Saturday's Aviva Premiership final with a most scrutinising eye as Saracens and Northampton Saints clash to decide this season's champion at Twickenham.

England's head coach will be hoping to see as little injury concerns as possible ahead of his side's summer series in New Zealand, but the context of the fixture is sure to see some bodies leave the fray at less than 100 percent.

In a re-staging of last year's semi-final between these two, Saints will seek to do what they couldn't against Leicester Tigers in 2012-13 by emerging as final victors, while Saracens will be out to right the wrongs of last weekend's Heineken Cup final defeat to Toulon.

Ahead of the battle, we outline five of the most crucial head-to-head duels set to take place at Twickenham this weekend.
