    Discipline **** poor though.

    Agree with @TommiG88 that it's hard to judge today Exeter were well in control but Castres were poor. Exeter seemed iffy under high ball

    Was at the game and wow Exeter actually decided to play rugby. Slade’s kick through for O’Flaherty’s try was perfect and I thought Nowell went very well at FB. Bit of a shame that he won’t get to play there more now that we’ve signed Hogg as he could potentially do a job there for England.

    This was a warm up for next week. Munster will not give chiefs that freedom, they wont give us the time and they wont concede the ground on carries. Its not out of the question for chiefs to win but going to be a tough old contest.

    So
    -chiefs need to win and deny Munster a BP
    -Chiefs need to get a BP win if munster get a TBP
    - finally chiefs are out if munster get 2BP loss(or munster win)

    We need a good day at the offlice and all the players to step up, id put out the same 23 tbh. But we are playing a well coached mini lreland team it will be tough and well earned if we pull it off.

    As good a signing as Hogg is , i think it would have been better to keep Cordero and make Nowell permanent FB,especially as Simmonds has also looked good playing there to recently.
    EJ might well consider Nowell as FB after Dalys tepid performances and stick him back on wing where he looks almost world class.

    So it comes down to Munster at Thomond in what is effectively a Heineken cup knockout, I'd be more confident of literally going anywhere else needing to win in those circumstances, think it will have a test match feel and hope Chiefs match the intensity of the hosts, can't wait....

    Glad to hear Nowell went well, but before we start annointing him as the world's greatest living full back let's see how he gets on in Munster. Suspect it might be a slightly more demanding afternoon.

    Is Mike Brown moving to Exeter? :D:D:D

    :D <- this does not properly convey just how much I am rolling around laughing at the various brains trusts of English rugby over the past several years for picking Mike Brown ahead of Will Addison and Mike Haley.

    I suppose Eddie "scum" Jones still has a chance of capping Haley. But he'd have to get over himself first. Which would probably be a bigger achievement than that of Edmund Hillary

    Main news is that He is fit. Should make a huge difference. Only change is Ryan in for Archer. That tighthead spot is tough to keep track of.

    Wouldn't even matter if it was true, Peter O'Mahony is often referred to as the most Munster of Munstermen. Munster let the Normans in, teamed up with the Vikings and killed Michael Collins (the good one, not the moon guy). QED Unionists > Munster

    We’re both from a city set up by the Vikings, you have a Brit surname and the Irish Free State shot a member of your family if I’m not mistaken!
