Exeter may not get it all their own way against Gloucester
Cherry & Whites have proved annoying adversaries
BT Sport 1, 3pm Sunday
Premiership champions Exeter are not the sort of outfit to rest on the laurels of last weekend's Anglo-Welsh Cup success and bookmakers expect them to romp to victory over Gloucester on Sunday.
However, the Cherry & Whites have proved annoying adversaries for the Chiefs in recent seasons and look worth a wager with a double-figure handicap start in Devon.
Gloucester have won three of the teams' last six league meetings and stayed within ten points on each occasion, including last season's 27-27 draw at Sandy Park.
Chiefs director of rugby Rob Baxter has refreshed his ranks from their cup win over Bath with only fly-half Joe Simmonds and flanker Dave Dennis starting again, but they have not been stretching away from sides in recent weeks including at home to a Northampton outfit who are in disarray.
The Cherry & Whites will be buzzing after their cracking European Challenge Cup quarter-final win at Connacht last weekend and they have gone toe-to-toe with playoff-chasing Newcastle, Wasps and Leicester at Kingsholm.
A 33-29 win at London Irish a fortnight ago should have made them feel better about their league travels after a poor 25-15 loss at Worcester in February.
