Saturday's Gallagher Premiership action kicks off with a repeat of last season's final
Wasps v Exeter live stream: How to watch from anywhere
A third of this weekend’s Gallagher Premiership fixtures may have been cancelled because of Covid, but there is still a cracker this afternoon in Wasps v Exeter (kick-off 2pm) – a repeat of last season’s final.
The Chiefs won that match at Twickenham 19-13, but it was Wasps who triumphed the last time the two sides met at the Ricoh Arena. In fact, Wasps were the last team to beat Exeter in the Premiership, winning that October match 46-5.
Wasps head coach Lee Blackett said: “We’ve got most of our internationals back this week, so that feels like an injection of energy coming back into the squad for this game.
“What a great challenge it is to take on the European and Premiership champions. That’s something we’re excited about.”
Exeter director of rugby Rob Baxter said: “It’s a very exciting game for us. Wasps are on good form. You can see they are enjoying what they are doing and that Lee has really got them buzzing. I think it’s a fantastic challenge for us, made all the better because I am sure they will be looking for a spot of revenge after the final last season.”
Wasps: Lima Sopoaga; Paolo Odogwu, Juan de Jongh, Michael Le Bourgeois, Josh Bassett; Jacob Umaga, Dan Robson; Tom West, Tom Cruse, Kieran Brookes, Joe Launchbury (captain), Will Rowlands, James Gaskell, Jack Willis, Tom Willis.
