Exeter Chiefs are preparing for their first cup final in six years. The Chiefs, who beat Bath in the semi final of the LV Cup, will face Northampton at Sandy Park on Sunday. They're looking for their first victory in a national cup final.

Early inspection following rain overnight indicated no possibility for pitch to be playable by this evening. We will advise new date ASAP
Exeter Chiefs' Jack Nowell has kept his place in England's Six Nations team for Saturday’s Calcutta Cup clash against Scotland at Murrayfield.
Head Coach Stuart Lancaster has opted for an unchanged line-up.
Lancaster said: “It’s good to be able to select the same players and they are all determined to put last week’s result behind us and build on the performance. Scotland will be hugely motivated by their defeat in Dublin and, as we found two years ago, Murrayfield is a tough place to play.”

Bad weather is taking its toll on the weekend's rugby and football fixtures.
Cornish Pirates game at Rotherham tomorrow has been postponed until Sunday at 2pm because of heavy snowfall in the area.
There will be a pitch inspection at Clifton Lane at 9am tomorrow to determine whether it will go ahead on Sunday afternoon.
Josh Lewsey has been appointed to the dual roles of Acting Chief Executive and Performance Director for the Cornish Pirates.
The former British Lion and World Cup winner with England will join the club from next month until September as a part-time consultant.
Exeter Chiefs' Luke Arscott has pledged to stay with the club until summer 2015. The full back is a key member of the back line. He was recently linked with Heineken cup rivals Clermont Auvergne but in extending his contract the Plymouth-born player has shown he sees his future at Sandy Park.
