Aviva Premiership club, Exeter Chiefs, complete their Pool 2 European Rugby Challenge Cup qualifying campaign on Saturday, in front of their own supporters at Sandy Park, with their place in the quarter-finals already assured, but with a chance of securing the top seeding position for the knockout stages, should they manage a fifth win from six fixtures.

Last week's 33-24 victory at the Sportsground in Galway against Connacht completed a season's double over the Irish Province, and gives them a better head to head record between the two, so even if the Irishmen manage to tie the Chiefs on 20 points, they will still only finish as Pool runners-up. Saturday's visitors to Sandy Park are French Top 14 outfit, Bayonne, who are the only side to defeat the Chiefs in the Challenge Cup this season. The French club squeezing home by 30-24 in Round 1 back in October.

Bayonne, with just two wins from their five fixtures in the Pool, are certain of elimination, even they create a major surprise by winning in Devon. Currently just four points above the relegation zone in the Top 14 table, the French club might be grateful to be out of Europe for this season at least.
