After a four-month wait, the Gallagher Premiership final is finally upon us as Exeter and Wasps go head to head..

The disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic to the Premiership season means it's a final that won't be seen by any fans inside Twickenham, but passions are nevertheless expected to run high in what is a repeat of the 2017 showpiece.

Exeter Chiefs ran out 23-20 winners that day, and will be hoping to make history with another victory today, having already been crowned European champions.

Wasps, who go in search of their first title in 12 years, may simply feel grateful for even being here, having at one stage looked set to be replaced by Bristol Bears after 11 club members tested positive for Covid-19.

However, Wasps have since had the green light to play in this weekend's clash after recording no further positive test results.

Here's everything you need to know about the clash...

What have the coaches said?

Rob Baxter : "I would like to think that winning last week will allow us to play potentially better than you can sometimes do in a final because we've gone from final to final and you'd like to take all the positives out of that.

"We've knocked one off and now, I'm not going to say relax because it would be the wrong word, but now we're ready to go and we've had a very recent experience of what it took to win a big game and the highs and lows that went through that game and the good and bad things we did.

"But at the same time if we don't turn up, this is Wasps' biggest game of the season, this is the thing that they've been building for for weeks and weeks and weeks."

Lee Blackett : “It’s not ideal preparation, it might make us a bit fresher, Exeter played a really physical game and we have had two weeks’ rest – we wouldn’t have wanted it, but we have had it,” added Blackett. “We will be in a good position. You will see when our team gets announced. It’s a good team. Take the previous few games, there are only four players missing from that so we’ll be in a good position come the weekend.

“We have always said the safety of our players and family is more important than rugby. So if we feel someone spent too long or too much time with someone who is positive … it’s gut-wrenching for players to miss finals, especially when they have tested negative themselves, but the health and safety of our staff, our players, their families and Exeter is more important.”
