Exeter Chiefs name side to face Wasps

"There's still much to play for," despite securing home-semi final says Chiefs' head coach

Table toppers Exeter, who have already guaranteed themselves a home semi-final, welcome Wasps to Sandy Park on Sunday. 

However, despite booking there place in the Premiership semi-final in record-breaking time, there is still much to play for says Chiefs head coach Ali Hepher. 

Speaking to the clubs website, Hepher said: “There is still so much to play for over these last few weeks. “It’s not just about spots within the side, there are also a few other challenges we’ve set the guys to go after. Right now, it’s not massively important if we finish top or second, but getting that home semi-final was crucial.

“The important thing from now is that we pick up our form and that we keep accelerating. Last week was a knock on against Leicester from the Bath game - and now we’re looking for another knock on against Wasps.”

The Chiefs have made little changes to the side that emphatically beat Leicester Tigers last weekend:
