Exeter Chiefs flanker James Scaysbrook says there will be no room for sentiment when he returns to former club Bath on Saturday.
The 29-year-old forward spent eight years at the Rec prior to joining the Chiefs in May 2009.
He told BBC Spotlight: "It's a big game for me, playing my old club as I've got a lot of old friends there.
"Everyone likes to get one over their mates, so both sides will be wanting to get one over each other really."
He added: "The Rec is a special place to play, over the years I always loved playing there so I'm really looking forward to it."
The season's first meeting between Bath and Exeter in February ended with the Somerset side edging a 12-9 win at Sandy Park
Scaysbrook said: "They showed us how to really finish a game off that day.
"There's certainly lessons that we took from that game that we'll improve on for the rest of the year.
"Quite a few old friends are still there so I'm looking forward to seeing them back out on the pitch," Scaysbrook added.
Since joining the Chiefs, Scaysbrook has been a key component on their journey from the Championship into the stable Premiership position they now find themselves.
He added: "Rob Baxter showed a lot of faith in me by bringing me down here in the first place.
"He's definitely brought my game on leaps and bounds and I always come out of each game with something to work on for the next week."
