Gallagher Premiership Rugby
Exeter Chiefs vs Harlequins
Sandy Park, Exeter, England
Exeter Chiefs and Harlequins will be facing each other in the final week of Gallagher Premiership Rugby. Nowell will be rejoining the team after an extended gap due to an arm injury in the Six Nations competition. Going in the game, Exeter is just a shy point above London Irish and will be looking to end the league stage with a win at home. Whereas Harlequins are in a pretty decent spot, and they won’t be switching spots even if they score a win in the game against the Chiefs.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Exeter Chiefs - Important Home Game for Exeter
Going in the game, Exeter Chiefs have lost three back-to-back games, including the post-season matchups. Their defeat against Munster (26-10) was pretty denting as the Chiefs couldn’t recover from the blow and lost games against Saracens (38-22) and Bristol Bears (40-33). For the important game, Exeter will be backing Stu Townsend and Harvey Skinner, who make their way back in the game. Exeter has a very competitive squad and benching a few potential players might be an understatement move.
Expected Lineup for Exeter Chiefs
Hogg; Nowell, Whitten, H Skinner, Woodburn; J Simmonds, Townsend; Hepburn, Yeandle (capt), Williams, Gray, Jenkins, Ewers, Vermeulen, Capstick.
Replacements: Harris, Kenny, Street, S Skinner, Grondona, S Maunder, O’Brien, Cordero
Harlequins - Can Harlequins Get Maximum Confidence and Move into the Semis
Harlequin’s team management has already made a sharp statement about going hard in the game and winning to carry the confidence into the semis. Going in the game, Harlequin's winning streak was interrupted by Northampton (32-21). Losing that close game against Northampton has certainly sent shock waves, but the comeback made against Gloucester (28-24) was equally remarkable. For the final game of the league stage, Harlequins can be named as the favorites and more competitive on paper.
Expected Lineup for Harlequins
Green; Lynagh, Marchant, Esterhuizen, Morris; Smith, Care; Marler, Walker, Collier, Symons, Tizard, Lewies (capt), Evans, Dombrandt
Replacements: Gray, Els, Louw, Hammond, Chisholm, Gjaltema, Allan, Northmore
