Ali Hepher insists Exeter Chiefs have been duly warned of the threat posed by visiting Worcester Warriors in tomorrow's Gallagher Premiership clash at Sandy Park (3pm).

Worcester's impressive 44-37 win at Leicester Tigers last weekend certainly lifted heads across the division, not just in the fact that it elevated the Warriors off the foot of the table with their first win of the campaign, but the fact they were able to pick off their more illustrious rivals in their own lair.

Exeter Chiefs must use their impressive win over Leicester Tigers last weekend as the springboard for another big performance ahead of Saturday's trip to rivals Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership (2pm).

That's the view of Chiefs lock Sam Skinner ahead of another mouth-watering fixture for him and his team-mates at the Ricoh Arena.

Skinner played a key role in helping the Devon club kick-off their new campaign on a winning note, defeating the Tigers 40-6 with a six-try success at Sandy Park.

Harry Williams insists Exeter Chiefs can ill afford to dwell on the disappointment of defeat in May’s Premiership Final against Saracens.

Instead, the England international believes he and his team-mates must instead use that loss as ‘fuel to the fire’ as the Devon club look ahead to the new 2018/19 campaign.

The new season kicks-off in less than a month on September 1 against Leicester Tigers at Sandy Park and the 26-year-old is aiming to be part and parcel of Rob Baxter’s mix as they look to wrestle back their title crown from the Londoners.

The Scottish international will take his stay at Sandy Park into a fifth year, having moving to the Premiership outfit from former club Glasgow Warriors in 2014.

Part and parcel of Rob Baxter’s squad ever since, the 33-year-old prop underlined his proven qualities last season by producing a man-of-the-match display in the club’s Anglo-Welsh Cup final victory over Bath at Kingsholm.
