Exeter Chiefs captain Joe Simmonds overcame a dead leg to qualify for the Northampton Saints this weekend, DevonLive said. Simmonds was replaced in the 49th minute as Exeter lost 34-19 to the Leicester Tigers on Welford Road on Saturday after hitting hard in the thigh.
The fly-half was given a rough ride in Round One when former Chiefs player Nemani Nadolo ran straight over a player who worked at the same time in the first half.
Twenty-three-year-old Harvey Skinner came to a standstill and kept the Chiefs in contention for the two most common international fly-halves at George Ford and then Freddie Burns.
But apart from Skinner’s strong performances in his 22nd appearance in the Premiership, it comes as a great encouragement to Exeter that Simmonds returned to his 10th shirt this weekend with Chiefs rugby director Rob Baxter not expecting any of his long list of injured players playing back in the competition at Sandy Park.
Exeter has no spinal back injury injured Dave Ewers (thumb), Scottish world champions Jonny Gray (shoulder) and Sam Skinner, flanker Richard Capstick (spine), South African rider Jacques Vermeulen (muscle) and British and Irish lions Jonny Gray and Luke Cowan- Dickie are both still under compulsory retirement as members of the Englands Elite Player Squad, according to an agreement with RFU and Premiership Rugby.

Exeter Chiefs vs Northampton Saints Prediction:
Exeter Chiefs will be looking for a winning statement at home to the Northampton Saints here after a 34-19 defeat to the legendary Leicester Tigers last Saturday. The second-round battle is also late for last season’s final but head coach Rob Baxter will allay his fears as he did well in their short stint of poor play last year. The Northampton Saints travelers beat Gloucester 34-20 at home last week to get off to a good start to the new season, although their own game looks tense and they will be hoping for my reunion for a week or so. Exeter looks set to be part of a top-flight Premiership competition and should be able to do things by covering -7 in front of their fans.
