Exeter Chiefs and Saracens will stage a re-run of last season's Grand Final at Sandy Park on Sunday, when they clash in round 2 of the Aviva Premiership. On that occasion, Sarries claimed the honours, winning a fine match on their way to securing a domestic/European double. On the opening weekend of the season, the Chiefs travelled to Coventry to take on Wasps, who they had beaten three times last season, including once in the play-off semi-finals. Despite dominating much of the early exchanges, the Chiefs slipped to a 20-25 loss, against a club that has been tipped as potential Champions this season, having made a number of top class signings.

Saracens began the defence of their title with a comfortable 35-3 win against Worcester Warriors at Twickenham. In truth, they didn't have to be at their best to secure a bonus point win against an injury ravaged warriors, and they are sure to find the Exeter Chiefs a different proposition at the weekend. Dogged defence by the Warriors had managed to repel Sarries during the first half at Twickenham, but they only rarely threatened the Champions line, and Saracens defence had one of its easier afternoons. The Chiefs, and in particular their driving maul will take a great deal more repelling.

It is a shame that the match of the season so far in the Aviva Premiership, between the top two clubs, Saracens and Exeter Chiefs, is scheduled to be played on the weekend that the 2016 6-Nations tournament begins. Both sides will therefore, be missing key personal from what promises to be an enthralling contest. The Chiefs who are just two points behind their visitors, who sit proudly at the top of the table, having suffered just one defeat in the tournament this season, will be defending a run of 15 successive wins in all tournaments at their Sandy Park ground. Gloucester were the last club to visit the Devonians and take away the points, and that was way back in January 2015. To add to the Exeter Chiefs impressive run of success on their own soil, during those 15 matches, they have given up only a solitary bonus point to the opposition, while claiming nine try-scoring bonus points themselves.

Sarries have suffered just one defeat in their last 19 matches in all competitions, that came at the Stoop against Harlequins 23-29, in early January. The reigning Champions have taken at least one point from every game that they played in the Premiership, since they previous visit to Sandy Park, which came in November 2014.

Exeter Chief's astonishing climb towards the summit of English club rugby continues apace. Last weekend for 24 hours at least, they stood at the top of the Aviva Premiership table, following their win at Sandy park against Wasps. Reigning Champions the Northampton Saints win at Saracens on Sunday allowed them to leapfrog over the Chiefs, but still left the Devonians in second place at the end of 8 Rounds of competition. On Saturday, the Exeter Chiefs welcome fourth place Saracens to Sandy Park as they defend a five match winning streak, their last reverse coming in France against Bayonne in the Challenge Cup on 18th October. The last team to beat the Chiefs on their own soil was Leicester Tigers, who won at the venue in Round 2 of the Premiership, since when the Chiefs have won six successive matches at Sandy Park.

Saracens have struggled to cope with the demands on their playing resources during the Autumn internationals, and although they defeated the Ospreys in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, they have not managed to win either of their Premiership fixtures. Drawing at Welford Road against the Tigers, and losing last weekend at home against the Saints. If Saracens emerge from Exeter without a victory, it will be the first time since the 2008-09 season that they have gone three successive matches without a win.

Although heavily beaten in last weekend's LV Cup match at Bath, where the final score line of 37-15 in no way flattered the home side, Exeter Chiefs can feel well satisfied with the start that they have made to the 2013-14 season. Five wins from their first seven matches in the Aviva Premiership, sees them occupy the giddy height of fourth position, an unthinkable place for the side to be just three seasons ago, when they were nothing more than a difficult to beat Championship side. However, they now face the prospect of having to step their game up to the next level, and to do that, they need to start beating the top sides, and on a regular basis. A point illustrated by the fact that their two losses this season have been against Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints, the finalists in last season's Premiership final.

On Saturday, the Chiefs welcome table toppers Saracens, who have lost just one league match this season, at second placed Northampton, to Sandy Park. The following week, they make the trip up the M5 once more to take on bath, which currently hold third place in the table. The next two weeks will be a true test of the Chiefs credentials.
