Sports Mole looks ahead to Sunday's Aviva Premiership clash between London Irish and Exeter Chiefs at the Madejski Stadium.

Exeter Chiefs can make it four consecutive wins in all competitions on Sunday when they face London Irish at the Madejski Stadium in the Aviva Premiership.

However, their hosts will be keen to get some points on the board having lost their previous two matches in the league.

Irish coach Brian Smith has been forced to make three changes to his side due to international commitments and injuries, with Tom Homer, Chris Hala'ufia and Bryn Evans all coming into the starting lineup.

Exeter welcome back a number of players who were rested for last weekend's LV= Cup victory over Ospreys and there is a first league start for winger Jack Nowell in place of Gonzalo Camacho.

Recent form:

London Irish: WWLLWL

Exeter: LLLWWW

Lineups:

London Irish: Homer, Ojo, Tagicakibau, Geraghty, Watson, Humphreys, Allinson, Hala'ufia, Gibson, Danaher, Evans, Garvey, Halavatau, Blaney, Lahiff
Replacements: Ellis, Palframan, Griffiths, Low, Gray, Gaston, Shingler, Moates

Exeter: Arscott, Nowell, Dollman, Shoemark, Jess, Steenson, Thomas, Baxter, Scaysbrook, Mumm, Hanks, Hayes, Rimmer, Whitehead, Sturgess
Replacements: Alcott, Moon, Tui, Muldowney, Johnson, Barrett, Mieres, Naqelevuki
