The fourth team that will play the semifinal must be settled for the postponed match between Worcester and Sale, however, the Premiership already went ahead and gave the dates of the semifinals that will take place on October 10. Wasps will be home to Bristol or Sale and Exeter will host Bath or Sale.
Wasps will face Bristol or Sale in the first of the two Premiership semi-finals the Saturday 10 October. If the last Sharks game of the season with Worcester takes place on Wednesday and the Sharks win with a bonus point, will finish third and they will face Wasps who finished second.
If he wins without a bonus point he will finish fourth and should be measured with Exeter in the second of the semifinals on Saturday. In both cases, with a positive result for Sale, the one who is left out is Bath. Exeter could face Bath if Sale falls to Worcester. The game between Sale and Worcester, which should have been played on Sunday, was postponed after the Sharks returned 19 positive tests for Covid-19, leading to an RFU investigation that rescheduled the game.
The first semifinal will begin at 9:30 a.m. (Argentine time) at the Ricoh Arena in Wasps, and Exeter will host the second game at Sandy Park at 12:30 (Argentine time). If the match ends in a tie after 80 ‘, two 10’ extra time periods will be played. If equality continues the team that scored the most tries will win and if the tie persists will be defined by penalties to the sticks.
