Baxter predicts renewed confidence
Exeter Chiefs director of rugby Rob Baxter says their win over Saracens on Saturday will end their bad run of form.
The Chiefs recorded an impressive 31-13 victory over the side who had been unbeaten in 22 games going into the encounter.
Before last week Exeter had failed to win in four of their previous six Premiership or Champions Cup matches before beating Gloucester and Baxter is confident their second win in as many weeks will set them on the road to some good form in 2019.
"What I want to see is it give us a renewed confidence and a vigour that if we do what we do, and we do it very well and with a lot of energy, then we're a tough side," he told BBC Sport.
"That's the most important lesson, that on our day we can beat a lot of good sides. But we've got to be ourselves and we've got to do it really well."
Exeter still top the table, three points ahead of Saracens in second with Gloucester way back in third, 17 points behind the Chiefs.
