Great result but an awful game to watch, ruined by the weather.

Chiefs squeaking it at the moment, I thought they'd piss it second half.

They are immensely fit and usually wear down their opponents in the second half. However, the Wasp's pact were pretty immovable with Jack Willis very much their star man. Having said that you can understand why Rob Baxter brought the highly mobile Jannes Kirsten into the starting 15 to keep Willis from too many darting runs.

Nice jinking run that brought about a superb try from that fine (did I say that) Plymothian Henry Slade Smile

Just been announced that the brilliant Jonny Hill has been included in Eddie Jones' England squad. also included are Hairy Williams and Henry Slade.

I fear that Joe Simmonds is some distance off the starting 15 with even the likes Quin's Marcus Smith probably getting the nod over him. Still, Joe looks the more robust player which Jones seems to like.

As for brother Sam at No8, I believe Jones prefers a battleship over a battlecruiser in that role.

If this thread is a microcosm of the general sporting persuasion of the people of Exeter, ECFC’s long term hopes and ambitions seem doomed when even their football fans are far more interested in rugby.

Not just Exeter folk but many fans bus to Sandy Park from as far as Cornwall. The South West / West Country has always been a rugby hotbed and the Chiefs emergence as a team of some note means that determined fans will make the effort to attend a live match - I've seen and spoken to Gloucester fans who've made the journey for that reason. Sometimes I cannot help but feel that some footy fans be they Plymouth or Exeter, resent the Chiefs simply because they feel they steal some of their club's thunder when in reality there is room for all.

I'm not sure Exeter Chiefs steal Plymouth Argyles thunder. ECFC on the other hand 100% will be negatively impacted by the cities rugby teams current success. Much the same as it would impact on Argyle should Plymouth Albion ever get to the top level and shine.

i agree but that's the natural order. more people would go watch top flight football/rugby in their home town if presented over the alternative.

seeing as exeter city have no ambition to ever get out of league 2 can't really blame the greeks for wanting to go sandy park and see a well run rugby club with ambition aim for the top honours the sameway a number of albion fans defected to them over the years.
