Exeter Chiefs end the 2021/22 Gallagher Premiership season at home against Harlequins on Saturday.
Exeter failed to make the play-offs for the first time since 2015. The Chiefs’ only win in their last five Gallagher Premiership Rugby matches was 42-22 at home to Bath in Round 22.
Exeter have only been defeated once in their last six first-team matches at Sandy Park: 17-22 to Leicester in Round 21 of Premiership Rugby.
Defending champions Harlequins have reached the semi-finals for the sixth time. The Londoners’ only loss in their last eight Gallagher Premiership Rugby fixtures was by a single point at Northampton in Round 24. Harlequins three-match winning run away from home in Premiership Rugby ended with their 31-32 defeat at the Franklin Gardens April 29.
Harlequins have won their last two encounters with Exeter including the 2021 final at Twickenham. Quins has not reached the regular season double over the Chiefs since 2013/14.
