Not looking forward to a big bath pack coming to smash us at home.

Hoping Lawes to back and we put out as big as pack as we can.

Ethan waller
Langdon
Davidson
Moon
Coles
Lawes
Pearson
Ludlum

Come on you saints!!!

If I were a betting man I'd go full accumulator on all away wins.

Ummm I did mean chiefs. I should concentrate more while typing inbetween sets at the gym.
 
Martin not been training

But we should have back
Montoya, Cole, Chessum, Wiese, Youngs, Pollard, Steward

To pick from fingers crossed

I think we will start
Abuladze Frost Painter
Tuima Jenkins
Roots Vincent Vermeulen
Cairns Skinner
Hawkins Slade
Woodburn Wyatt Feyi-Waboso

Weather will be bad so we need the top scrummaging props out there, we might end up giving WHW a start and Hawkins, though maybe its weather for Hendrickson starting.

Shame no VRR, was looking forward to seeing him vs Obano (I know opposite sides of the scrum, but just in general)
 
Could be a long afternoon at the Gardens…😮
Weathers going to be terrible it looks like so not idea for the running rugby but having Lawes Ludlam and Mitchell back is a big boost.

Im enjoying Chiefs going back to the old tactics and seeing the new load of players stepping up.

Just seen an insane stat! Look at the difference in tackles made last week.

Is it going to be bad weather ? I hadn't looked yet.
Exeter are playing really well thus far, the new players are looking totally at home in the Prem.
Those stats are crazy.

Im happy with that tbh, surprised they havnt started painter seen as its vs Saints tbh. But Sio Yeandle Painter Tuima coming on is going to bring some power at scrum time late on.

Be interested to see how Hawkins goes.

Bit of mixed selection here. Happy to see Lawes back, but then Pearson on the bench is odd. No FH back up (and news today that Grayson is leaving now) so not really sure about Hutchinson at FH.

I'm going for all away wins this week.
 
Lots of potential England candidates In this game
 
Some nice play from Gloucester in that attack

Torn on this - Want Gloucester to lose but also want Russell to lose
If Bath could sub him early that'd make me feel far less conflicted
