 Rob Baxter will be looking for the Chiefs to perform better than they have over the last few weeks as they commence this season's European campaign.  This may sound a little strange giventhe Chiefs currently lead the Premiership having dropped just one of the availavle 30 points on offer.  However this has  been achieved with a mix of some great rugby mixed in with some uncharacteristic sloppiness from the players.  Indeed Baxter asppeared mighty crytical of his side on more than one occassion during the initial block of games. I can't help thinking that injuries to key players has caused some distraction but it speaks voumes for the Chiefs strength in depth that they can still pull out win after win.

There's no hiding Chiefs desire to make more progress in the European competition this season.  First up it's Munster Rugby at Sandy Park who are currently in 4th place in the Pro 14 having won just 3 from 6 games whereas Chiefs are 6 from 6.  There has only been one encounter between the two sides with Chiefs being 12 - 0 winners in a pre-season game in Ireland.  However this will be the first competion meeting between the sides.  I can't see anything other than a Chiefs win but I'm sure it's not going to be easy.
