THE PREDICTION

Premiership league leaders Exeter Chiefs will have high hopes for this tournament and they come into this match against Northampton Saints well rested after rotating their first teamers out in their last league game. All their key men return here and they will be confident of dispatching this average Saints team. The Chiefs won 22-19 just over two weeks ago when the two teams met but they did not have all their regular starters playing and they should be able to win by a comfortable margin here and dominate this game from start to finish.
