Home final can spur on experienced Harlequins

Reshuffled Chiefs side face battle

Harlequins celebrate their comeback win over Gloucester
1 of 1

Anglo-Welsh Cup
BT Sport 1, 3pm Sunday

Exeter and Harlequins enjoyed significant wins in the Premiership last weekend but they have taken differing approaches as they prepare to clash in the semi-final of the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

An impressive bonus-point win at Leicester helped Exeter move up to second in the table while Quins came from 27-15 down at Gloucester to win 30-27.

The Chiefs are aiming for their third successive appearance in the Anglo-Welsh Cup final but are sticking with their policy of letting their fringe players lead the charge and have made 12 changes to the side that beat the Tigers.

Quins, in contrast, have made just four changes to their side and include plenty of experience in their line-up including fly-half Ruaridh Jackson, England winger Marland Yarde and former Wales and Lions prop Adam Jones.

The final is being played at Quins' home ground next Sunday so it seems they are determined to throw everything at ensuring they get there.

Harlequins director of rugby John Kingston has hailed Exeter as "without doubt the in-form team in the country" but the hosts may struggle to hit their usual heights with so many changes to the line-up and Quins can make the best of an eight-point start.

Recommendation
Harlequins +8
1pt 10-11 Coral
