Sunday's Aviva Premiership clash between Exeter Chiefs and Bath Rugby is now officially sold out.
The final tickets for the much anticipated encounter were sold this afternoon and will mean over 12,500 fans will be packed inside Sandy Park.
It will be the first meeting of the two clubs this season with the Chiefs - currently fifth in the Premiership standings - looking to overcome third-placed Bath, who have lost only once under new Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder.
Damian Welch’s last-gasp try snatched a dramatic draw for Exeter Chiefs in an enthralling derby with Gloucester at Sandy Park.
With less than a minute remaining, Gloucester’s hopes of a second Aviva Premiership victory of the season were dashed when the Chiefs mauled their way over in the left-hand corner to tie the scores at 27-27.
Even then Rob Baxter’s side could have won it at the death, but the normally deadly Gareth Steenson was unable to land the tricky conversion from wide on the touchline.
Rob Baxter says his Exeter Chiefs side must ready themselves for a “full blooded” encounter when they travel to Newport this evening in their final pre-season friendly against the Dragons at Rodney Parade (7:30pm).
Having warmed up with home wins over Scarlets (45-3) and Ulster Rugby (25-19), Baxter is hoping this final engagement will serve as the perfect warm-up for his players ahead of their Aviva Premiership opener at Wasps on Sunday week.
Rob Baxter challenged his troops to deliver in battle ahead of their opening pre-season fixture against the Scarlets at a sun-baked Sandy Park.
Keen to ensure his class of 2016/17 hit the new season firing on all cylinders, the Exeter Chiefs head coach said it was vital those given their chance against the Welsh region made the most of the opportunity afforded to them.
