Table toppers looking to bounce back from Wasps defeat
It's a sold-out crowd for tomorrow's Premiership clash between Exeter Chiefs and Harlequins at Sandy Park (14:00 kick-off).
Rob Baxter says his Exeter Chiefs side can't take their foot off the pedal - despite already securing a home semi-final.
Speaking to the clubs website, Baxter said: “I’m less concerned what the opposition feel about us, instead I’m more concerned about how we feel about ourselves, how good a position we feel we can put ourselves in, and how strongly we prepare to be the best team we can be.
“The most important thing is the teams that stay the most successful are the teams that are always striving to be better and that’s what we have got to make sure we want to achieve. Either we want to be better next week than we are now or we don’t – and a huge part of us getting better next week is how we perform against Harlequins.”
International stars Santiago Cordero, Jack Nowell, Don Armand and Luke Cowan-Dickie all sit out tomorrow’s game, but the Chiefs are boosted by the return of Dave Dennis and Jonny Hill up front, whilst Tom O’Flaherty and Phil Dollman are added to the back division.
