    BBC Sport

    Wasps' scrum-half, Joe Simpson, has one simple message for anyone lucky enough to have a ticket to see his side's Premiership final with Exeter at Twickenham - don't leave early.

    "Never leave early when it comes to Wasps matches," Simpson, 28, told BBC Sport.

    "We've won two or three matches in the last plays of the game. We really back our bench. We know we've got the fitness to keep up that level of performance for 85, 90 minutes. However long it takes, we keep battering on that drum."

    It's Wasps' chance of a first crown since 2008.

  13. BBC Election Panel: Your thoughts on defence

    The BBC is running an election panel, asking voters for their thoughts ahead of 8 June.

    We asked:

    What should we do about defence? Do you support Trident? Which party’s policies do you think best look after our defence needs?"


    Shah, Birmingham: "I don't support Trident. None of the party's have any viable long term financially savvy solution."

    Barry, Telford: "Trident must be supported and we should have four submarines and not just three please do not let corbyn near them."

    Harold, Coventry: "I would oppose Trident if there is a viable alternative. It's difficult to say which party best looks after our security but I would go with Labour."

    Daniel, Walsall: "I support a strong defence but am not an interventionist. I don't find much to like in Labour's mixed stance on the nuclear deterrent but do not like how the Conservatives have steadlily cut the military either. No party really fully reflect my views I don't think."
