The Enthralled Reaction To An Absorbing Premiership Final

Seven years after being promoted to the Premiership, Exeter Chiefs have made history by beating Wasps in the final at Twickenham after extra-time. 

The Chiefs made it to the final the hard way, going on a remarkable undefeated run, before denying Saracens at the death in last week’s semi-final.

Meanwhile, Wasps powered past Leicester Tigers to ensure a place in the Twickenham decider.

In what was an enthralling final, 80 minutes of rugby couldn’t separate the sides as it was locked at 20-20 following the final whistle.

Granted, it wasn’t always pretty…

However, rugby fans everywhere enjoyed it for what it was, a thoroughly entertaining game of rugby between two top teams.

It came right down to the wire. The Chiefs’ decision-making was certainly called into question.

However, the Chiefs finally saved their own skin, forcing extra-time before a Gareth Steenson penalty in the dying moments secured a 23-20 victory.

And the reaction to their win was one of unadulterated joy.
