Dartington Crystal reward double-winning efforts of the Exeter Chiefs

The Covid-19 outbreak around the world has meant...

Chiefs side to face Bath

Rob Baxter has warned his Exeter Chiefs side to be wary of a ‘wounded animal’ ahead of tomorrow’s visit off Bath Rugby to Sandy Park in Round Two of the Gallagher Premiership (5:30pm).

Whilst Baxter’s side kicked off their title defence with an impressive 33-3 victory on the road at Harlequins, Bath were picked off 19-12 by newly-promoted Newcastle Falcons, who were playing their first league fixture since March.

That loss, coupled with the fact that Bath were defeated by the Chiefs in last season’s Premiership semi-final - the last game played at Sandy Park - means...

Exeter Chiefs side to face Harlequins

As defending champions of the Gallagher Premiership and Heineken Champions Cup, Rob Baxter is acutely aware his Exeter Chiefs side have a huge target on their backs this season.

It’s a challenge, however, that the Devonians are clear relishing with the Chiefs’ Director of Rugby this week exuding a real air of excitement ahead of tomorrow night’s opener away to Harlequins (7:45pm).

“We’re looking forward to Friday, but so we should be,” said Baxter. “People will say it’s going to be tough for us having a short break, but I actually think not having that lengthy period off...

Chiefs side to face Wasps

In what has been the strangest, toughest, yet - at the same time - most memorable Premiership Rugby campaign ever, it now comes down to just one final fixture.

For the newly-crowned European champions, Exeter Chiefs will rock up at Twickenham tomorrow for a fifth successive outing in the end of season showpiece (6pm).

Rob Baxter's side are well-versed in prepping for a big day out at English Rugby's HQ, but that doesn't mean they merely have to turn up and believe a potential domestic and European double is a mere formality.

Standing in their way will be an in-...
