Director of Rugby Alan Solomons spoke to the media today ahead of Sundayís Gallagher Premiership match against Bristol Bears at Sixways Stadium (3pm).

Hereís what he had to say:

Exeter Chiefs
At 21-3 down we showed terrific resolve and resilience and kept them try-less in the second half until the 73rd minute when we were down to 14 men.
Exeter are a power side and there are lessons to be learned but we were pleased with a ot of aspects of our game.

Bristol Bears
Anyone who has watched Bristol in the Championship and their five Premiership matches knows how good they are.
Bristol have prepared well in the Championship. They
have had the same team, the same systems and coaching staff and they have brought in some big players.
They are a possession-based team who are going to keep the ball.
The crowd have a big role to play. We are anticipating a big crowd and our supporters mean a lot to us.
Itís a two-way street. We have to give the crowd something to cheer about.

European Rugby
The lads who have played week in, week out for us will be given a rest after the Gallagher Premiership block.
We have genuine competition for places. That is healthy and the players who play in Europe will compete.
The European matches will give an opportunity for guys who have not been involved as much to put their hands up and show they should be considered.
Rory Duncan will oversee the team in the European Challenge Cup and the Premiership Rugby Cup.
