RECAP: Exeter Chiefs v Wasps
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our coverage of the Premiership Final between Exeter Chiefs and Wasps in London.
Exeter will hope the shackles are off when they bid to become just the fourth English club to complete a domestic and European double-winning season by beating Wasps in Saturday’s Premiership Final at Twickenham.
They have already got one trophy in their possession after a thrilling 31-27 victory over Racing 92 in last weekend’s Champions Cup Final as they were crowned kings of Europe for the first time.
They then had to deal with the uncertainty over whether they would, in fact, play Wasps in the Premiership Final after their opponents returned a raft of positive coronavirus results that has left them without 11 players.
