WASPS get their season underway with a clash against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday September 4 when fans will have their first chance to run the rule over new summer signings.
Last season the sides met in two of the most entertaining games of the season – Wasps were the victors in a classic European Champions Cup semi-final while Exeter got their revenge in the Premiership semi-final.
It promises to be another hard-fought encounter as the two top four sides from last season look to get their 2016/17 campaigns off to the strongest possible start.
Dai Young has bolstered the squad since the end of last season with Danny Cipriani, Kurtley Beale, Kyle Eastmond and Willie le Roux among the high-profile signings. Joe Launchbury will lead the side for the first time since the England lock was appointed as club captain.
Exeter’s squad boasts a number of England internationals that secured the 3-0 series win down in Australia, including Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Luke Cowan-Dickie.
