Steenson backing Exeter to topple Titans

FORMER Titan Gareth Steenson reckons his Exeter side can get back to winning ways at Clifton Lane this weekend.

Steenson, who made his British baptism when brought in from Ireland by Andre Bester, knows the Chiefs have to get back on track after defeats in their last three games.

"It was always going to be very unlikely that we would go through the season unbeaten," said Steenson.

"If we were going to have a blip, now is not a bad time to have it.

"It was disappointing the way the game ended at London Welsh (the Chiefs lost 12-10). “We are creating chances and just making errors. We've worked on a few specific things in training and the lads have worked hard. If we can put those things right we can get back to playing like we were at the start of the season."

They are now eight points behind main rivals Bristol in the league table, although both are assured a place in the promotion play-offs at the end of the season.

Steenson thinks most people would have been happy with the current position if offered it at the start of the campaign.

He added: “We're hoping the Rotherham game will be on so we can play some good rugby and get some confidence back."

This weekend’s game will be held either tomorrow or Sunday depending upon how successful the club’s show-clearing operation at Clifton Lane is and if the weather holds up. Kick-off is 2pm.
