Exeter looking to build on excellent start

Exeter Chiefs fly-half Joe Simmonds

Heineken Champions Cup Pool 2 sees two unbeaten sides in Exeter Chiefs and Glasgow Warriors do battle on Saturday at Sandy Park, with kick-off at 15:15 GMT and live coverage on BT Sport and beIN SPORTS.

Exeter Chiefs were excellent last week as they defeated La Rochelle 31-12 while Glasgow beat Sale 13-7.

Key quotes

Rob Baxter (Exeter Chiefs): “We’ve had some humdingers with them in the past. Last time that we played them at Sandy Park, we won a pretty tight contest in some pretty difficult conditions but I thought we actually played out that game relatively well.”

Dave Rennie (Glasgow Warriors): “They’re good at hiding the ball, putting it up the jumper and hanging onto it for 30-odd phases, so it’ll be the same process, we’ll need to be really good up front. It’s a big challenge. Hoggy [Stuart Hogg] has moved on to Exeter, which is great for him. No doubt he’ll get a few reminders during the week from the boys.”

Key facts

  • Glasgow Warriors have won three of their four previous Heineken Champions Cup games against Exeter Chiefs, however, all four were decided by a single-digit margin.
  • The Chiefs have lost their opening home game of the season in just one of their last five Heineken Champions Cup campaigns (W3, D1), that defeat coming against ASM Clermont Auvergne in 2016/17.
  • Glasgow have won just two of their previous 22 away games against Gallagher Premiership opposition in the Heineken Champions Cup (L20), although one of their two victories in that run did come against Exeter Chiefs in 2013/14.
  • Glasgow beat Sale Sharks at Scotstoun in Round 1, however, they’ve not won away at a Premiership club in the Heineken Champions Cup since beating Leicester Tigers 43-0 at Welford Road in 2016/17 – Warriors’ biggest victory in the competition.
  • Exeter have trailed at half time in just one of their last 10 Heineken Champions Cup games, leading seven times and going in level at the break twice.
  • Exeter Chiefs and Glasgow Warriors were two of just three clubs to keep their opponents scoreless in the first half of their Round 1 fixtures, along with Northampton Saints.

Exeter gave a stirring second half show to wipe out a three-point deficit and run-out comfortable 34-18 winners over injury hit Glasgow in Pool 2 of the Heineken Champions Cup.

The Warriors led 13-10 at the break after a spirited opening which saw Nick Grigg charge over after great approach work from Tommy Seymour. Adam Hastings was also on target with two penalties and a conversion.

Exeter were slow off the mark but after Joe Simmonds settled nerves with a penalty they posted their opening try just before the half-hour mark when Jonny Hill showed his power from close range.

Glasgow had given as good as they got up to the break but were knocked off their stride two minutes into the second period when Exeter’s Jack Nowell cut through in style and England colleague Henry Slade was up in support for the finishing touch.

Before the hour mark Sam Simmonds ended a period of home domination with a powerful finish from a driving maul as injuries started to take their toll on Glasgow.

A backline reshuffle followed when winger Daniel Van der Merwe limped off and Exeter immediately capitalised as a dazzling three-quarter move ended with Slade chipping over the defence for Tom O’Flaherty to scoop up and dive in at the corner for the bonus point.

Glasgow’s misery was complete when Kiran McDonald was yellow carded for an offence off the ball and the accurate boot of Joe Simmonds struck again.

The Warriors only consolation came in the dying seconds when Tommy Seymour was held short on the right but the ball was spun to the opposite flank for George Turner to stroll over.

Exeter visit Sale in their next Pool 2 game on Sunday, December 8 while Glasgow visit La Rochelle the previous day.
