Exeter Chiefs must get back to basics against Bath, says Rob Baxter

Exeter Chiefs must get back to basics against Bath if they are to stay in the Premiership title race, says head coach Rob Baxter.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

The Chiefs saw their four-game winning run come to an end last weekend with an 18-11 defeat to Sale Sharks and have slipped to third place in the table, six points behind leaders Northampton Saints.

Baxter takes his side to Bath " the team in second place " on Saturday and has urged Exeter to rediscover their best form.

He said: "What we have to do is get back to doing what we do best - and doing that flat out because if you don't play flat out in the Premiership, you tend to lose games of rugby.

"There's no area in between.

"We've dealt with losses very well in the past and that's what we've got to do again. I'm not going to dwell on it.

"Bath away is probably the hardest fixture of the season, but that's a great challenge for us and probably not a bad time to have that on the back of a loss because there's only one way to go " we have to go up there and fly into the game and see what happens.

"It's a tough place to go, not many teams go there and win now, they've established some real quality, and it's something I hope we'll get really excited about."

While two of the top three go head-to-head, leaders Northampton travel to Harlequins looking to record a ninth win of the season.
