I know which way to look and will be as vocal as usual in my near 50 years of supporting Bath as I always will until the day I die.

IMO Exeter offer the ultimate challenge to any team in the Premiership, and must be clear favourites on form, confidence, league position, results, points scored and conceded, and are at home.

On our day, if all of our 15 play to their maximum potential, and we up and maintain the physicality and match Exeter's running support, we could sneak it, as we did at the death last year. However, that elusive form and inspired play has been sadly lacking for most of this and the past seasons.

Realistically I don't think we will, but we could run them close and I believe we can get a LBP out of the game. For some reason, Exe don't always play well against us and we are like their bogey side, as IIRR believe we were the last Prem side that they beat after promotion to the Prem.

It all begins with us needing to match their juggernaut pack and stop their support runners in their tracks.

Hope so anyway and IMO this game is now our most important local derby.
