This Sunday brings a welcome return to Premiership action for Exeter Chiefs when they visit the Ricoh and take on Wasps in what promises to be an exciting opener to the season.  Last season saw some great action in this fixture with Chiefs having the bragging rights from the Prem and Wasps in the Champions Cup.  Whilst Chiefs have added a handful of new signings Wasps have been splashing the cash to bring in the likes of Danny Cipriani and Kurtley Beal to replace the Pietu brothers and George Smith etc.  

Roib Baxter has had a short but intense preseaon to get the Chiefs up to speed and is sounding confident the guys are ready for action.  Preseason wins over Scarlets, Ulster and Dragons showed some great rugby but also areas to work on before Sunday.  However I expect the guys will be really up for this one and hope they can open the season with a win.
