    So ASM short 14 of their squad, Chiefs missing a number of their stars and a wind making every kick into a banana shape and one would presume that the game would be as exciting as the snooze fest first half in Glasgow earlier!!

    But no, Chiefs start off brilliantly and are robbed of a mauled line out try by Lacey asking the wrong question. This results in a scrum followed by ASM kicking it 80 yards into touch and an almost immediate try for them!!

    Jones is here but not sure whether he is watching Nowell, all the other possibilities seem to be missing, or to chat with Baxter!!

    Nowell should be a def in the squad.

    Chudley I think should be look at just does the basics very well.

    Wouldn't be upset if Jones gets Hepher as backs coach.

    Nowell is class.

    Not entirely sure about Chudley.

    Interesting to note that Jones is sitting directly behind the Exe coaches - was even talking to rob hunter during the game.

    Nowell is the best player on the park. Just such an agile player with great straight line speed. Exeter are seriously lacking a good backrow to hit the rucks. Love how deep Exeter play.

    Dave Ewers and LCD are missing - their main ruck dump trucks are gone in those two.
    As is Hill - who gets their backs on the front foot.

    Yeah I'm aware of those fellas. That's really been the difference so far. Exeter have looked great every time they can hold the ball for a few phases

    Short and Woodburn have their shortcomings, but they really are excellent runners of the ball.

    I bloody love Exeter.

    They're just a mix of everything you love about rugby - classy backs, massive carriers in the pack, strong set piece.

    Does James Short ever pass a ball?

    It was high but not a swinging arm IMO. YC still.

    Disagree old chap! Definite swinging!!

    The mistaken question from Lacey to TMO at start of game maybe costly!
