Well, well, well you just never know.

Wasps will be replaced by Bristol in the Premiership final on 24 October if a coronavirus outbreak means they cannot play, says Premiership Rugby.

The Coventry-based club cancelled training after four players and three staff members tested positive.

They are conducting an extra round of testing on Saturday with results expected by Monday afternoon.

If Wasps have to forfeit the Twickenham showpiece, Bristol would replace them as the next highest-ranked side.

Under the league regulations, forfeits during regular season matches result in a 20-0 loss for the side unable to play, as was the case when Sale's match with Worcester was cancelled.

But Bristol will have had the bigger break.

Shame chiefs have to wait until Monday as the decision could potentially effect the team sheet for tomorrow.

The final situation was agreed back in August by all clubs in the event of a team being unable to play due to Covid

That may be the case, but the situation now is not what it was then.

Just give the title to Exeter and be done with it.
