Sports Mole previews Saturday's Aviva Premiership clash between Exeter and London Welsh at Sandy Park.

Two of the Aviva Premiership's out-of-form sides meet at Sandy Park on Saturday as Exeter Chiefs entertain London Welsh.

The Chiefs start the weekend with one draw and four defeats from their last five league matches - a run of form that has seen them slip down to eighth place in the table.

London Welsh have fared even worse in recent weeks, with five straight losses leaving them three points above the drop zone.

Carl Rimmer, Jack Yeandle, Tom Hayes, Ben White and Sireli Naqelevuki are among a handful of players who have been brought into the Exeter starting XV.

London Welsh have made three changes as Seb Jewell, Tyson Keats and Greg Bateman replace Sonny Parker, Alex Davies and Paulica Ion respectively.
