Chiefs have announced their side to face Bath this Saturday.

Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter is hoping his side show no hangover from their narrow 18-16 defeat at Gloucester last weekend when they entertain Bath on Saturday (3pm).

A sell-out crowd will pack into Sandy Park for the eagerly-awaited Westcountry derby, when the Chiefs will be keen to lay their Bath bogey to rest.

Team news for the Chiefs sees skipper Tom Hayes return in the second row in place of James Hanks, whilst behind Phil Dollman who missed last weekend’s game because of illness – returns in the centre at the expense of Ian Whitten. The former Ulsterman and Hanks both drop down to the bench where they will be joined by returning England international Tom Johnson.
