Bryan Redpath's side have enjoyed a promising preseason and Tindall thinks the preparations have been well planned.
"The way we've performed in the warm up games and the way the boys have responded has been exceptional really."
"Brushy has tried to make it a harder, tougher environment for everyone to take us out of our comfort zones and help us grow as players. Hopefully, that'll show through in tough games."
"There are no easy games, there are no sure things. We've got to go into the season and make sure we win our home games. We haven't lost at Kingsholm since November and we want to keep that going."
"Then we want to up our away wins. That's purposely why we had two tough away games in preseason."
With Gloucester only having met Exeter twice in competitive matches in the past, most recently in December 2002, Tindall admits that the Chiefs are something of an unknown quantity.
"It's a very hard time to play them as we don't really know what we're going to get. We start on a level playing field with no previous results to take into account. It'll be tough."
"This is one time when homework can be a little bit deceiving. Warm up games never truly reflect what happens in Premiership games. You might identify patterns from preseason games but that isn't necessarily what they'll do in the Premiership."
"We've got to go down there expecting everything and, for our part, bring some variety to our game so we can surprise them with something different."
