Bristol were last week placed on stand-by to take the place of Wasps in the final, if Lee Blackett's side are unable to fulfil the fixture.

It now appears increasingly likely that the West Country club will face Exeter, in place of the team who beat them 47-24 in a play-off semi-final at the Ricoh Arena nine days ago.
