Dai Young has made two personnel changes to the team that played Saracens last weekend.

Set to make his first start for the club, on-loan winger, Tom Prydie is named in the starting fifteen, after impressing from the bench last weekend.

Into the side also comes Zak Taulafo, who starts in the front row, while Elliot Daly moves from the wing to the centre, taking the place of Riki Flutey who is ruled out through injury this weekend.

Rob Webber and Joe Simpson return from the England training camp to take their places on the bench, while USA Eagles star Paul Emerick could make his debut for the club, having also been named on the bench.

Director of Rugby, Dai Young, said “This weekend we know that we will have to be more clinical than we were last weekend and take any chances that we are presented with.”

“Exeter will present us with a different kind of threat, playing a fast paced game which comes from a strong set piece. We will have to be equal to that, and try to put right the small things that haven’t quite clicked for us recently.”
