Saturday's Challenge Cup clash at Sandy Park, Exeter is a vital clash for both sides involved, the Chiefs from the Aviva Premiership, and Irish Province Connacht from the Guinness PRO12 tournament. The Chiefs started the Pool campaign with a disappointing loss in France against Bayonne, who are one of the French teams with a less than overwhelmingly impressive home record.

An ill-disciplined French side gave the Exeter Chiefs plenty of opportunity to keep the scoreboard ticking over, and despite leading for most of the match, they succumbed to a 77h minute try, and were left with just a losing bonus point to their credit from a 24-28 defeat. Saturday's opponents from Ireland started their own Challenge Cup challenge with an overwhelming victory against another French side, Grenoble. With the French outfit having lost every game away from home this season.

Connacht may have expected to secure a win, but they may have been shocked by the outcome. The Irishmen crossed their opponents line 7 times, as they ran up a 48-12 win. This may prove to be one of the most open Pools in the tournament, with the runner-up unlikely to secure enough points for qualification to the quarter finals.
