Exeter Chiefs 32-19 victory in the long away trek to Newcastle in Aviva Premiership Rugby last Friday ended a three game winless run in the tournament. Exeter are one of only three sides in Premiership Rugby who this season have tallied fewer league points at home as they have picked up on their travels.
Worcester Warriors only victory in their last seven first team encounters was 31-25 at home to Bristol in the Anglo-Welsh Cup on 4th November. The Warriors only two away victories since returning to the Premiership in 2015 both came in successive fixtures in March 2016, at Newcastle and at Harlequins.
Exeter have won all eight previous fixtures against Worcester in Premiership Rugby with the Warriors most recent success over the Chiefs being in Division One at the old County Ground in March 2004.
