The Championship winners celebrate, Harlequins and Northampton prepare for their European finales and England and New Zealand go head to head at the Emirates Airline London Sevens on this week's RFU.com podcast.

Worcester Warriors head coach Richard Hill was relieved to have booked a return to the Aviva Premiership at the first time of asking after the 25-20 second leg victory against the Cornish Pirates.

Hill told the podcast: "It's been a long journey, every week's been a battle but this is a reward for all the people who've put so much hard work in."

Drew Locke, the Pirates try-scorer at Sixways, insisted his side will be back next season.
