After a tough loss to Wasps last weekend, Lightning will look to get back to winning ways this Saturday as they welcome Exeter Cheifs to campus.

Making four changes to his starting line-up, Head Coach Rhys Edwards gives Katie Trevarthen, Anya Richmond and Amelia Harper a spot in the forward pack.

There is only one change in the backline as Abbie Brown returns to the side at full-back after a few weeks out.

Sitting in sixth place, the newbies Exeter have shown they are a team to be respected, narrowly losing to Bristol bears by only two points.

The game will kick off at 3pm at Loughborough University.

Tune in to support the team from 2.45pm on Facebook or Youtube.
