THE PREDICTION

Leicester Tigers have had a rollercoaster start to the new Premiership season after an excellent home win over Gloucester was dampened by a loss away to London Irish last time out. It may take some time for the bottom of the table to take shape but Tigers will be somewhere near it after this match when they host Exeter Chiefs. The league leaders have a 100% bonus-point win record so far after almost whitewashing Bath 40-3 on Saturday in a frightening statement for the season ahead. The Chiefs have only conceded 6 points over two games and, like other sides, have plenty of their best players out on international duty right now. This next match should be not bother at all and the away side can cover at least -15, if not -20 in winning it.
