The Premiership’s top two meet at Sandy Park this afternoon

Exeter v Bristol live stream: How to watch the Premiership match online from anywhere

Exeter Chiefs and Bristol Bears are level on 20 points at the top of the Gallagher Premiership with four wins and one defeat so far this season, so their meeting at Sandy Park this afternoon (kick-off 4.30pm) is a chance for one of them to pull clear.

In their two most recent meetings, the winning margin has been just three points, so it is set to be a tight affair. The Bears won 20-17 when the two sides met at Sandy Park in November 2019 while the Chiefs triumphed 25-22 at Ashton Gate last August.

Exeter: Jack Walsh; Olly Woodburn, Henry Slade, Ollie Devoto, Ian Whitten; Joe Simmonds, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne; Alec Hepburn, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Harry Williams, Will Witty, Jonny Hill, Dave Ewers, Don Armand, Sam Simmonds.
