Leicester News & Form

It has been a tough season for the Tigers as they are sitting second from bottom heading into the weekend It has been only a W1 L4 record that they have taken in the Premiership this season. They are the lowest-scoring team after five rounds of action with just the 66 points put on the board as well. They have however, only lost one of their last five games between domestic and European action, so have confidence growing there.

Exeter Winning Margin 8-14

Mr Green

But is their domestic form enough to suggest that they can upset the Chiefs? They do have a three-match winning streak at Welford Road going in all competitions. Leicester also did get the better of Exeter in the Premiership Rugby Cup back in September, but when it comes to league fixtures, they have won just one of their last six against the Chiefs.

Exeter News & Form

The Chiefs have won their last five games in all competitions and are moving along nicely. There have been a couple of blips from them in the Premiership as they hold a W3 L2 record form their five outings. But they have the second-best defensive record in the top flight as you would expect. One of those was against Bristol back in round four of league action, but they have put together their winning streak since then. In their last league away game, they collected a narrow four-point win out at Worcester.

This may be a tight scrap because the Tigers have some confidence going at the moment. But still, they have come up short against Exeter in most of the recent meetings and the Chiefs look strong enough to dig out a win at Welford Road.
