Here is all the information you need on how to watch Northampton's clash with Exeter.

Northampton v Exeter live stream: How to watch from anywhere

Friday night in the Gallagher Premiership sees Northampton Saints take on top-of-the-table Exeter in what we hope will be a closer affair than last time. Back in February the Chiefs destroyed Northampton at Sandy Park, scoring nine tries in a 57-7 romp.


The form of each side doesn’t look great though. Northampton have won just twice in the last nine rounds of Gallagher Premiership Rugby whilst the Exeter Chiefs have won their last five Gallagher Premiership Rugby fixtures, four with maximum league points.

Northampton: George Furbank, Ahsee Tuala, Matt Proctor, Rory Hutchinson, Tom Collins, Dan Biggar, Henry Taylor, Francois van Wyk, James Fish, Owen Franks, David Ribbans, Api Ratuniyarawa, Courtney Lawes, JJ Tonks, Teimana Harrison (captain)

Replacements: Sam Matavesi, Nick Auterac, Paul Hill, Nick Isiekwe, Shaun Adendorff, Alex Mitchell, Piers Francis, Taqele Naiyaravoro

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

Replacements: Jack Innard, Billy Keast, Alfie Petch, Tom Price, Richard Capstick, Joe Snow, Harvey Skinner, Tom Wyatt
