  2. 'A surreal sight'

    FT: Exeter 34-23 Wasps

    Brent Pilnick

    BBC Sport at Sandy Park

    "I've covered Exeter Chiefs since they were in the old National One, and the ambition was always to be the top side in England - but to see the club actually have that chance next week is almost surreal.

    "It goes to show what you can do with a well-managed club which has steadily built year on year."

    Quote Message: It's difficult to explain, really. I don't really know what to say - I'm emotionally drained after that last 20 minutes. It's great credit to the players and I'd like to say nice reward for a very good season... But there's still one more game to play yet. from Rob Baxter Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter on BT Sport

    FT: Exeter 34-23 Wasps

    Incredible scenes at Sandy Park, just incredible. Exeter Chiefs are 80 minutes from lifting a quite remarkable first-ever Premiership title. Bravo.

  11. Try (Penalty, con Steenson)

    Exeter 34-23 Wasps

    Exeter Chiefs have the penalty try - they're heading for the Premiership final!

    Gareth Steenson lands the kick to add some gloss...

  12. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    Scrum down, Exeter put in. Hold steady now, lads....

  13. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    Exeter think they may even have sneaked the match-deciding score, but the referee instantly rules it's held up. Greg Garner asks for the clock to be paused, just 53 seconds shy of a first Premiership final for Exeter Chiefs.

    Exeter driving maul
  14. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    With the wind and rain against them, Exeter head for the corner. They secure the line-out and get the rolling maul working forwards... One Chiefs player has even had his shorts pulled down, raising a childish giggle or two in the crowd!

    Still they roll, though...

  15. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    And Exeter Chiefs have drawn the penalty at the breakdown - that is surely that!

  16. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    They're around 30 metres from the line, working through phase after phase. Wasps need the ball back badly.

  17. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    But Jack Nowell rips it from the hands of James Haskell! Exeter are pouring forwards, knowing a try of their own would surely settle this Premiership semi-final once and for all...

  18. Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    All eyes on the clock now then, as Exeter boot the ball up to halfway through Gareth Steenson.

    No more messing about from Wasps, though, who are very much attempting to play their way through this Chiefs defence.

  20. Twitchy time

    Exeter 27-23 Wasps

    Brent Pilnick

    BBC Sport at Sandy Park

    "Boy oh boy is it getting nervy here. Exeter are within touching distance of a first-ever Premiership final.

    Not only are the crowd getting twitchy, but with all these handling errors it seems the players are as well - unless you're Gareth Steenson or Jimmy Gopperth, who have been faultless from the tee."
