    This could be the match of the round.

    Exeter have already beaten Wasps but they are on form at the moment.

    Waldrom is sooooo Overrated.

    What does he make yards wide a game 30m roughly.

    Hughes can play behind a backwards pack Waldrom would be as useful as a sack of gummy bears behind a backwards pack.

    He is a great club 8 but it annoys me so much when people compare him to Hughes, Vunipola and Beaumont.

    One thing Waldrom is though is a good finisher. But agreed he doesn't really do defence, incredibly lazy guy.

    Yeh 5m from the line he will score but that is it, how many clean breaks Has he made? Compared to say Hughes, Vunipola and Beaumont?

    Wait when on earth did Lachie Turner sign for Exeter? Anyway Exeter for the cup, easily my favourite team left in the tournament, and probably my favourite non-Irish team.This one goes out to Wasps.

    Hes a weapon for the Chiefs in the same way that Ashton is for Sarries. You cant compare him to 8's like Binny, Hughes etc. and its a ridiuclous idea to have him as Englands 8. Waldroms weaknesses are recognised and disguised by Exe's other players to fully utilise his strengths, which are breaking the gainline, bullocking runs from deep and generally smashing holes/drawing defenders. He does this all over the park as well as from driving lineouts. The reason he scores so many tries is that Exe engineer their play so he is in that position, usually with Mitch Lees driving him on.

    Agree 100% just annoys me when he gets billed as such.

    Exter have a pack full of grafters which allow him to do what he does best on the 5m line.

    Haskell with a hand off ?!?!?!?!?

    Great little start to this game, Exeter giving up too much ground in the contact.

    Clearly trapping the Ex player from rolling away. Poor officiating.

    No but you also can't hold them down to keep them in. It is clever play from Wasps though. Seen it twice now, but to be fair Chiefs got the rub of the green there on that penalty.

    I kind of love Waldrom. He's surprisingly effective for someone who looks like a 50 year old father of 3.
    Edit HAHAHAHA speak of the devil

    Mullan a small fair bit of pace about him.

    Grant it was only against Waldrom but still
