FT: Exeter 35-35 Wasps

Wasps' three points mean they are now five points above leaders Saracens and looking very good going into the final run in.

Could we see these two meet again at Twickenham in May?

Exeter reaction

Exeter number eight Sam Simmonds told BT Sport: "It's frustrating. In patches we performed really well.

"It's a shame we couldn't get a win in the end but a draw against a strong Wasps side, we'll take that.

"We knew we were fit enough to play with a man down and a proud game for all of us."

Full-time

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

10 tries. Two yellow cards. One red. Three points each.

That, quite simply, was a brilliant game of rugby.

Wasps still haven't won at Sandy Park but three points on the road will be welcomed by the Premiership leaders.

Exeter found an extra gear after the Jonny Hill red card and will also be satisfied with their work - they move up to third above Bath.

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

Danny Cipriani is tackled man and ball and as it comes loose, Henry Slade hacks up the pitch!

Kurtley Beale doesn't brilliantly to get back and throw it out of the tackle and Wasps have possession again...

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

Wasps in possession in the closing stages.

Do they have one moment of brilliance left? Can Exeter hold onto three vital points with another defensive shift?

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

Mistake by Stuart Townsend as the replacement Exeter scrum-half slices across an attempted territorial kick and it goes straight out.

Line-out to Wasps just inside their own half.

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

A couple of reset scrums takes seconds out of the clock until a free-kick is awarded to the Chiefs.

Gareth Steenson sends a huge deep kick into Wasps' territory and the some kicking tennis begins.

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

Just when the Wasps back line look like their offloading andskill will get them through again, Thomas Young knocks on trying to throw the ball out of a tackle.

A relieving scrum for the tiring Chiefs.

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

Exeter with ball in hand and mainly keeping things tight.

A reminder, if things stay like this that both teams will end up with three points - two for drawing and one for scoring a try bonus point.

Try (Joe Simpson, con Jimmy Gopperth)

Exeter 35-35 Wasps

On 59 minutes I said Wasps can strike from anywhere - they've just done from their own 22.

Danny Cipriani's burst of pace sets it up, Wasps work it through simple hands to Joe Simpson and a couple of half tackles stop his momentum but he has too much strength and gets the 10th try of the game.

That's ten (10) tries.

Jimmy Gopperth levels is up for a juicy last 10 minutes. Don't go anywhere.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

An astonishing defensive shift from Exeter.

19 waves of attack came from Wasps but the swarming black shirts do just enough to keep them out and win a turnover.

That was leg-sapping, lung-bursting stuff from the Chiefs but they'll probably need some more of that over the next 12 minutes.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

Wasps have themselves a penalty for 40 metres out, dead centre, which would normally be kickable.

But against this wind the men in white shirts go to the corner and look for the levelling score try.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter is perhaps showing where their game will be going as he has kept a full compliment of forwards on despite Jonny Hill's red card.

At the moment it is working as they've enjoyed lots of territory in the Wasps half.

'He looks distraught'

Exeter v Wasps

Jonny Hill certainly not that sort of player, he's not a dirty player.

He looks absolutely distraught - his arm did make contact though, and the Exeter bench will have an awful lot of work to do now to get organised.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

But seriously, this is really set up nicely.

Exeter might have one less man but they're running through phase after phase and using this strong wind behind them to kick when needed.

Wasps, with their expensively assembled, and high quality back line, can strike from anywhere if given the chance.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

It's been a whole nine minutes without a try... come on lads, sort it out.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

No team is in better form in the league at the moment than Exeter over the past six games.

Rob Baxter's mean have take 25 points over than period or just over four points a match.

At the moment, they're up for another five points despite being down a man.

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

A ironic raw from the Exeter fans will tell you their glee at a mistake by Wasps.

Inches from the line they knock the ball on through Alex Rieder to stop them almost immediately responding.

Try (Olly Woodburn, con Gareth Steenson)

Exeter 35-28 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

This is nuts. Like, really, really nuts.

A NINTH try of the game and we're only up to 50 minutes. 

All made by the brilliance of Olly Woodburn who is not held after his initial break so gets onto his feet to place the ball down. 

The 14 men of Exeter have a fifth try, the lead and another Gareth Steenson conversion.

Try (Kyle Eastmond, con Jimmy Gopperth)

Exeter 28-28 Wasps

What a minute that was.

Wasps immediately take advantage of that red card as Danny Cipriani shows his brilliance with ball in hand with a step, a delay and then the delivery to set up his good mate Kyle Eastmond from five metres.

Another simple conversion for Jimmy Gopperth and Thomas Young is back on for Wasps as they return to 15 men.

Red card (Jonny Hill)

Exeter 28-21 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Getty Images

Wow, gamechanger.

Exeter will finish this game with 14 men for what looks like a pretty innocuous incident.

Jonny Hill enters a maul high and catches Ashley Johnson with his shoulder and arm high, right on the face.

For that reason, under the new interpretations of the high tackle laws, he is dismissed.

Try (Luke Cowan-Dickie, con Gareth Steenson)

Exeter 28-21 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

This is some line hit by Exeter hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie off fly-half Gareth Steenson who finds him with a flat pass and he burst through two tackles and stretches for the line.

The first time the hosts have been in front and they have a try bonus-point.

Steenson continues his perfect record from the tee so far.

Exeter 21-21 Wasps

Greg Holmes with the first mistake of the second half as Exeter's Australian prop knocks on.

A reminder that Wasps are still down to 14 men with Thomas Young in the sin bin.

Kick-off

Exeter 21-21 Wasps

Gareth Steenson, with the wind at his back, gets us going.

Another six tries this half will do me nicely.

After that fabulous first half, we've been asking you to put forward Exeter and Wasps players for future England selection...

Ash Green: Great to see the strength in depth we have now at Chiefs. Sam Simmonds, Jack Maunder etc. playing so well, we've come a long way!

Live fast, Dai Young

Don't forget that a win for Wasps today could send them seven points clear at the top of the Premiership.

Dai Young's side have won their last five games but are going to need a big effort to make that six against the wind at Sandy Park

Last call

HT: Exeter 21-21 Wasps

This is the final game of round 14 of the Premiership, not a bad way to end so far.

Just a reminder of the results elsewhere this weekend if you've been focused on all things Six Nations.

So what did you make of that first-half? Should Eddie Jones look at Christian Wade? Were both penalty tries correct?

Half-time

Exeter 21-21 Wasps

Nope, they cannot.

Six tries in 40 minutes but Exeter will be the happier of the two teams as they were playing into the wind.

You wouldn't bet against both teams getting a fourth try bonus-point but I have no idea which way this one will go.

More of the same in the second 40 minutes please.

Exeter 21-21 Wasps

Last few plays of the first half, can anyone grab a morale boosting score?

Try (Penalty try, con Gareth Steenson)

Exeter 21-21 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

Eventually the referee has enough of watching Exeter's power being stopped illegally and he raises his arm under the shadow of the posts for a second penalty try of the afternoon.

It all came from a driving maul from a line-out again, Thomas Young adjudged to have brought it down and is shown a yellow card.

This ding-dong contest continues as Steenson makes it three from three for him.

Exeter 14-21 Wasps

A chance for the points from a penalty, but Exeter go to touch and their maul gets them to within two metres before it is collapsed.

The referee calls over Wasps skipper Ashley Johnson and says final warning - another five metre line-out for the Chiefs.

Exeter 14-21 Wasps

Work for Rob Baxter's men to do again then. Twice they have conceded a try only to respond themselves.

He's got to be pleased with their showing into the wind in Devon so far though.

Exeter 14-21 Wasps

Who needs the Six Nations? Just the five tries in the first half an hour here.

Probably some enraged defence coaches, but this is fun.

Try (Alex Rieder, con Jimmy Gopperth)

Exeter 14-21 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

What was I saying about living up to the hype?

This is all made by the class of Dan Robson as the Wasps scrum-half holds the defence around the fringes of the ruck to open up a gap for number eight Alex Rieder to cross unopposed.

Three from three for Jimmy Gopperth and it's a quiet Sandy Park.

Try (Jack Maunder, con Gareth Steenson)

Exeter 14-14 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

Wasps' defence is breached again as Phil Dollman spots a gap and gets in behind the white shirts. 

Young scrum-half Jack Maunder is on hand on a support line to his left and when he gets he pass has an easy dive under the sticks.

Gareth Steenson converts and, thankfully, this game is really living up to its pre-match hype.

Exeter 7-14 Wasps

A man down and playing against the wind, Exeter opt to keep it tight and get a really well set driving maul that goes a good 15 metres.

But Kearnan Myall comes right through the middle, disrupts it and Wasps will have the put in after the maul collapses - that's the last action of 14-man Chiefs as Mitch Lees returns from his sin bin.

Exeter 7-14 Wasps

Exeter v Wasps
Rex Features

They might be a man down but Exeter go through 22 phases to get to within sniffing distance of the Wasps line.

A knock-on ends their attack but that was some effort with a man down.
