It's the moment we've all been waiting for, as Exeter Chiefs head up to Twickenham today to face Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership final.

Semi-final results

As for Harlequins, despite being down 28-5 at half time, a stunning second-half comeback saw them shift the scoreboard to 43-36 to beat the Bristol Bears in extra time.

Today's match

This match will mark the sixth time in a row that Exeter has made the final - and the first time since 2012 for Harlequins.

The Chiefs' lineup has now been released.

Replacing banned forwards Dave Ewers and Sam Skinner are Jonny Gray and Richard Capstick.

Jack Nowell returned from injury and made an appearance last week in the semi-final, scoring two tries. He will start in the full-back position.

Director of Rugby Rob Baxter told Chiefs media: "As long as Jack is fit and able to play, you will see a good game from him.

"Even I was impressed at the weekend, and I’ve seen him do it over and over again. That is just typical of him. He delivered, and he has put himself right back in the shop window with that performance."

Kickoff is at 5.30pm at Twickenham, and you can watch the match live on BT Sport.
