Exeter Chiefs are unbeaten in their last eleven Premiership Rugby matches since tripping up at home to Bath on 30 October. The Chiefs have picked up a try bonus in their last five encounters in the competition and have not lost at Sandy Park since Bordeaux were the visitors in round 3 of the European Champions Cup.
Bristol Rugby have won just once in any competition since New Year’s Day: 12-11 at home to Bath in round 16 of Aviva Premiership Rugby. Bristol’s only away win in the tournament this season was by a single point at Sale in round 12.
Exeter have won their last four matches against Bristol, both legs of the 2010 RFU Championship final and the two meetings at Ashton Gate this season in Premiership Rugby and the Anglo-Welsh cup. Bristol’s only previous victory at Sandy Park was 25-16 in the RFU Championship in December 2009.
