For Sale, Bevan Rodd makes his first start of the campaign and Raffi Quirke returns to the bench for the first time since April in a promising sign for the Sharks and England. A tough result to predict, but Sale are in foreboding form, so one would think it’d be close.

99 or by individual matches for £4. 99Highlights: Sunday 18 September, 10. 45pm, ITVBoth teams won their first three games of the campaign, and seek a return to winning ways after a disappointing weekend, as Chiefs’ director of rugby Rob Baxter was keen to highlight: “Over the years we’ve had some great games against Bristo. In all of them, results have gone either way. Right now, you’ve got two teams who are at the top end of the table and both of whom will be pushing hard to get a result. “What we need to do – and we’ve spelt this out to the boys this week – is go there and put in a big, emotional performance. I’m sure Pat [Lam] will be saying the same to his team. Like ourselves, Bristol will have been frustrated with their result last weekend up at Newcastle, so we have to be ready to come out of the blocks firing and meet the challenge they throw down head on. ”Captain Jack Yeandle returns at hooker for the visitors with Jack Nowell on the wing, while Toby Fricker returns from injury for the Bears with Ellis Genge, Harry Randall and Charles Piutau back in the fold.
