Rob Baxter says his Exeter Chiefs side must use the disappointment of their European campaign so far to make them a better side moving forward.

Hopes were high at the start of the season that the Devonians would really attack their rivals in this season’s Heineken Champions Cup. However, that has not proved the case and after three rounds the Chiefs are still without a win and sat bottom of Pool Two.

An opening round draw with Munster at Sandy Park has since been followed with defeats to Castres and Gloucester, the latter coming just last Saturday when the Cherry &...

Tomorrow, however, the Chiefs will embark on their latest European adventure, welcoming for the first time to Sandy Park, Irish visitors Munster in Round One of this season’s Heineken Champions Cup (3:15pm). A capacity crowd will be expected for this inaugural match-up between these two modern-day heavyweights, both of whom will be looking to deliver a...
