Chiefs have too much know-how for young Scarlets

Exeter can pull away after the break

Exeter ran in seven tries against Northampton in the Anglo-Welsh Cup

Anglo-Welsh Cup
BT Sport 1, 3pm Sunday

The Pro14 champions host the English champions in the Anglo-Welsh Cup but Scarlets are given a start of more than 20 points as international call-ups have left a big gulf in experience between the two line-ups.

The Welsh outfit have named an unfamiliar team, digging into their academy and semi-pro ranks, and while the Chiefs have a few emerging players in their side, there is plenty of Premiership and European experience there too.

The visitors should have too much power and pace, and they are looking to build on a seven-try victory over Northampton last week, although coach Ricky Pellow has called for more focus in defence after that 43-28 success.

The Scarlets are sure to put up a fight at home but they look set to be outclassed by the end and the last 20 minutes could be when the Chiefs can do real damage.

Recommendation
Exeter -9 on second-half handicap
1pt 10-11 Betfair
