Thank you Moorsman, I was debating about buying this book, I think now I will.
Funny enough re-watched our great win against Bristol last night, what memories? what rain? great joy.

I finished reading the book last week and must say I really enjoyed it.

I have read a lot of rugby biographies and autobiographies and this is up there with the best. It takes you through game by game the chiefs journey from that milestone day of securing our place in the premiership to the end of last season from a players point of view.

I would certainly recommend this book to any chiefs fan or rugby fan in general.

Well done to all involved!

Good news is just had an email from the publisher saying it's on its way....a week and a half early!!!! Good move (Sm152) whoever decided that.

"The second half is based on the diary Neil started on Exeter's promotion and is a very interesting insight for each match in the first two seasons."

Think it would be interesting if a couple of players and maybe supporters did this on an annual basis.....

Got home yesterday evening and it was there. Couldn't put it down all night and finished it at about 23:30.

Very good read, very honest. Having just seen seen the team for Leinster gutted for him that he doesn't feature. Understand he's only had 18 mins of PR this season and there's no room for sentiment in selection - just think I have a good idea of how much it would mean to him. Hope he gets his chance soon - and his first Premiership try. (Sm152)
