Well played, Exeter.

Either team deserved to win, but for a lot of us the really good guys won.

Congratulations !

Shame that not a single Exeter player or coach interviewed after the game had a word for Racing - but that, sadly, is par for the course for English teams.
Well done DD , finally outing yourself good and proper :lol: :thumbup:

Surprised Racing took Zebo off; he’d looked dangerous every time he got the ball in space (had an excellent game against Sarries as well). Also surprised they kept Iribaren on as long as they did!

Regardless, they actually did a decent job of messing-up Exe’s rhythm for large parts of the game - messed-up the lineout, brought a lot of physicality to the rucks/over the ball and mauled well - but every time they looked like they were about to get momentum and potentially take the lead they handed the initiative straight back!

So pleased for Ex though; so much more than the sum of their parts and impossible not to like and respect them as a club and a team.

Have to say they were lucky that penalty happened very near the touch or else, racing would have gone for the kick and probably nailed it.
Btw where both team tries were scored had also a big impact on the final score with Exeter scoring their tries near the midfield while almost all racing tries being scored near the touchline which made the conversions very hard
That's not luck though, that's part of the game.
Don't play that game with me,you perfectly know there are things which rely on luck more than others.
Ah. So they lost because the penalties were all in the wrong place. Shame, as they played a fantastic game after seemingly looking as though they were going to be steamrollered at the start.

Exeter are a hard team for a well-coached and fit opposition to play against. Racing are neither of those things.

I'm glad they didn't win after winning the semi against Sarries' B team despite being utter dogshit for 78min.

Really pleased for Exeter.

Why didn't Racing set for a drop goal when they were camped in front of Exeter's sticks? Very un-Northern-Hemisphere-like.
