TEST IN THE WEST. BATH v EXETER CHIEFS
Bath Rugby’s resurgence and renewed confidence will be severely tested by Exeter Chiefs on Saturday. Having battled to three wins with nail-biting finishes, yielding a combined seven point victory margin, they must face the European and English champions, smarting from two successive defeats. Exeter have yet to find the form or consistency of last season, 3 of their 4 losses coming in the last six rounds. They will be desperate to end the slump and reassert their authority.
