THE TEAM NEWS

EXETER CHIEFS

  • Exeter Chiefs put in a brilliant 31-12 showing on the road as they collected a bonus point victory from their trip to La Rochelle to go top of Pool 2.
  • Henry Slade put in a superb display at centre and the England international looks like he has put his injury troubles behind him just in time with pool-rivals Glasgow up next.

Line-ups: Stuart Hogg, Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Ian Whitten, Tom O'Flaherty, Joe Simmonds, Nic White, Alec Hepburn, Jack Yeandle (capt), Harry Williams, Dave Dennis, Jonny Hill, Dave Ewers, Jacques Vermeulen, Sam Simmonds.

GLASGOW WARRIORS

  • Glasgow Warriors made it three consecutive wins in all competitions as they defeated Sale to start their European campaign strongly, though their performance left much to be desired.
  • Ali Price made a welcome return to action for the Warriors from the bench last week and it comes as quite a surprise to see him start in the replacements again this week.

Line-ups: Tommy Seymour, Ratu Tagive, Nick Grigg, Sam Johnson, D.T.H. van der Merwe, Adam Hastings, George Horne, Oli Kebble, Fraser Brown, Zander Fagerson, Rob Harley, Scott Cummings, Ryan Wilson (capt), Chris Fusaro, Matt Fagerson.

Replacements: George Turner, Alex Allan, D’Arcy Rae, Kiran McDonald, Thomas Gordon, Ali Price, Pete Horne, Kyle Steyn.

THE PREDICTION

Glasgow Warriors picked up a solid enough win against Sale last week but this looks like a much more difficult proposition as they head to Exeter. The Chiefs made a statement with a brilliant bonus point win over La Rochelle last week to lead Pool 2 and should back that up by beating the visitors by a margin of 10 points or more in this encounter.
