Wasps 2016/17 Premiership Preview | Premiership Rugby Video

Ahead of the 2016/17 Aviva Premiership Rugby season we have a quick look at Wasps Rugby Club and the season that lies ahead for them.

Wasps kick off their Premiership campaign on Sunday against Exeter Chiefs at the Ricoh Arena.

Wasps have been defeated in their opening game of an Aviva Premiership Rugby season for the past four years.

Wasps only victory in their last four matches in all tournaments last campaign was 38-12 over London Irish at the Ricoh Arena in round 22.

Wasps have won their last nine matches at the venue in all tournaments since Saracens were victorious there in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 27th December.

Exeter Chiefs only victory in round 1 in the past three seasons was 52-0 at London Welsh in 2014.

The Chiefs won their most recent away game 62-24 against Harlequins at the Stoop in round 22 of Aviva Premiership Rugby last season and have not won back to back games in the competition in 2016.

The two sides met on four occasions during the 2015/16 last season with Wasps only victory being 25- 24 at Ricoh Arena in the quarter-final of the European Champions Cup in April – the Chiefs won all three Premiership encounters including the semi-final at Sandy Park in May.
