There were huge doubts as to whether Wasps would be able to put out a side for today’s final, due to seven positive Covid-19 cases among players and backroom staff. However, despite news circulating that Bristol Bears – the side Wasps had beaten in the semi-finals – were on standby, Lee Blackett’s side have been given the go ahead to play after registering no further positive results. Despite the good news, the Wasps squad has been unable to train together for 12 days, while at least 11 players are unavailable for selection due to the outbreak.
Their opponents come into the final after being crowned European champions for the first time last week, with Exeter Chiefs beating Racing 92 by a score of 31-27 in a match for the ages. Today’s showdown at Twickenham will be the Chief’s fifth Premiership final on the spin, and in the circumstances, they’re strong favourites to to clinch a historic double.
The past 15 meetings between the two sides has seen a pretty even spread of results, with Exeter winning eight, Wasps winning six, with one stalemate. Despite their big win last weekend, the Chiefs were someway from their best, and although their preparations have been hugely disruptive, it could be that week of turmoil may have galvanised Wasps.
