The Chiefs just kept marching on and they collected another win in midweek to consolidate their position at the top of the table.

Next in their sights is Worcester who are having a season of struggles.

But the Warriors managed to snap a long losing streak in midweek by collecting a victory over Harlequins.

However, they are facing a much tougher task in this one as they head to Sandy Park as big underdogs.

Exeter Chiefs Preview – Chiefs stride on and on

Exeter hold an eleven point lead at the top of the Premiership table currently.

It has been a W12 L4 record that they have produced so far in his campaign and are just looking too powerful to stop.

They had a big game on their hands in midweek against the in-form Bristol and it was another big test passed for the Chiefs.

Out on the road at Ashton Gate, Exeter collected a 25-22 win, their fourth straight league success.

That is two of the current top four that they have beaten in their last two games and those were both away wins.

It is hard not to be impressed by that and another win should be coming their way as they face Worcester on Sunday, who are third from bottom.

Our betting prediction:
Exeter 11-20 winning margin

(odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August)


Exeter were staring in the face of defeat at Bristol, but they kept plugging away to get their last-gasp success.

So far at home this season they have suffered two defeats, having gone down against Bristol and Sale.

The Chiefs have a remarkable history in the Premiership against Worcester as the Chiefs have only been beaten by them once.

That was in a 2018 defeat and it happened by a single point as well in an upset at Sandy Park.

We can’t get to anything other than a comfortable win for Exeter here and a Chief’s -29 handicap is up at a 5/6 price to highlight their expected dominance* (odds taken 22:45 GMT, Friday 29th August).


Worcester Preview – Thankless task at Sandy Park for Worcester

Worcester were on an eight-match losing streak before they managed to stop the rot in midweek.

They took a 29-14 home success over Harlequins to break that miserable sequence.

The Warriors are still stuck third from bottom in the table and their away form for the campaign isn’t good.

They have collected just one success on their league travels this season.

That victory was at Harlequins back in round four, so it’s been a long losing streak for them since then.

In their victory against Quins in midweek, Worcester got a bonus point, their first win bonus of the campaign.
