Sports Mole looks ahead to Gloucester's visit to Sandy Park to face Exeter Chiefs in the final round of Aviva Premiership fixtures.

Exeter Chiefs will be looking to secure a place in next season's Heineken Cup when they play Gloucester in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow.

A win at Sandy Park for the home side will ensure that they finish in the top six, while the visitors are already assured of their place in Europe.

Tomorrow's match will be the last in a Gloucester shirt for flanker Peter Buxton, who is leaving the club after 11 years to join Championship side Bristol.

Both teams have named unchanged starting lineups for the clash, having won their last games in the league.
