Wasps v Exeter live stream: How to watch from anywhere

It’s second versus first at the Ricoh Arena as Wasps host table-topping Exeter Chiefs in the Gallagher Premiership this weekend.

Wasps will be facing a significantly weaker side than usual because Exeter has already booked a home semi-final and a Champions Cup final against Racing to prepare for later this month.

“As a group we’ve earned the opportunity to organise these games how we want to,” Baxter told BBC Sport.

“The key is going to be having the largest and best group ready to play big games of rugby as possible,” Baxter added.

“And some of that does include guys getting some minutes against Wasps and for other guys it means giving the chance to have a really good training period of 10 days in preparation for the semi-final.

“The players have earned the right to get to semi-finals and finals and we have to manage that to the best of our ability, and the reality is it’s for everyone else to get themselves into the top four and find out where they end up.”

Wasps: Matteo Minozzi, Zach Kibirige, Malakai Fekitoa, Jimmy Gopperth, Josh Bassett, Jacob Umaga, Dan Robson (captain), Simon McIntyre, Tommy Taylor, Kieran Brookes, Will Rowlands, James Gaskell, Brad Shields, Thomas Young, Tom Willis

Replacements: Gabriel Oghre, Tom West, Jeff Toomaga-Allen, Tim Cardall, Alfie Barbeary, Ben Vellacott, Michael Le Bourgeois, Rob Miller

Exeter: Phil Dollman, Tom Wyatt, Corey Baldwin, Tom Hendrickson, Alex Cuthbert, Harvey Skinner, Sam Maunder, James Kenny, Jack Innard, Marcus Street, Will Witty, Dave Dennis, Richard Capstick, Don Armand (captain), Charlie Wright

Replacements: Elvis Taione, Danny Southworth, Alfie Petch, Tom Price, Lewis Pearson, Stu Townsend, Jack Walsh, James Short
