Bristol v Exeter live stream: How to watch from anywhere

We could be in for an incredibly exciting matchup between the Bristol Bears and Exeter Chiefs in this Gallagher Premiership mid-week clash.

The Bears are unbeaten in their last nine first team games and they have lost only once at Ashton Gate in any competition since March 2019, which was a narrow loss to Wasps.

Whereas the Chiefs are coming off the back of another maximum point victory over Sale which was also their third maximum return in a row. They sit atop the table with the Bears eight points behind so if the Bristol side wants to chase them down, then victory here will be crucial.

Given the quality of the two sides we are expecting a narrow affair, as shown by the last time they faced each other which was a last-minute try victory for Bristol. That was in Round 4 so that was rather a long time ago now.

Bristol: Charles Piutau, Luke Morahan, Semi Radradra, Piers O’Conor, Henry Purdy, Callum Sheedy, Harry Randall, Max Lahiff, Bryan Byrne, Kyle Sinckler, Ed Holmes, Dave Attwood, Steven Luatua (captain), Dan Thomas, Nathan Hughes.

Replacements: Harry Thacker, Jake Woolmore, John Afoa, Joe Joyce, Ben Earl, Andy Uren, Ioan Lloyd, Alapati Leiua.

Exeter: Josh Hodge, Tom O’Flaherty, Phil Dollman, Tom Hendrickson, Olly Woodburn, Gareth Steenson, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Alec Hepburn, Jack Yeandle (captain), Tomas Francis, Dave Dennis, Sam Skinner, Jannes Kirsten, Don Armand, Sean Lonsdale

Replacements: Jack Innard, Billy Keast, Marcus Street, Will Witty, Richard Capstick, Joe Snow, Harvey Skinner, Tom Wyatt
