Iím guessing thatís Nick Wood the ex Glaws prob ? Seems like they are getting ex players involved in the citing process. Is it me or is it fairly new the citing officer is listed as part of the officials?

Not so new - Wade Dooley appointed some time back to the Welsh contingent. Talk about poacher turned Gamekeeper !!

Cannot wait for this game! After witnessing our lads outplay Quins at their own ground our danders must be up. This is a game to savour! Exeter will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Warriors, and we will want to continue our momentum from last week! Also with competition for top 4 and possibly top 2 to consider, this sets it up beautifully!

Really looking forward to this. There defiantly seems to be a growing rivalry between the two clubs after some big gales in recent years.

I think the back-row battle will be the key - their big units (if they go for Ewers, Don and Waldrom again) against our fast and furious ball-snafflers. Can see them going in hard at the breakdown to clear us out quickly which may help us in reducing the ball carrying options for them on their ball.

Can't complain about JP at all.

Hopefully as good a game as our last with a similar result (minus the red card)

They seem to be using ex players for the citing officer role. Wasn't Buster White appointed for one of our games this season?

i think it makes sense to use ex-players where possible.
They'll have the right level of sympathy with the players, whilst also being aware of the rights and wrongs of what's occurring

This might be a dumb question, but do players get released from International duty for this weekendís games or is it at the discretion of the head coaches?

If so I can see EJ releasing all the Exeter players and finally calling up the likes of Wadey, Cips, Willis, Bassett, Cooper-Woolley..(Sm100)

Buster is indeed a citing wallah. Another ex-poacher (Shane Byrne had a more colourful way of putting it, much to Buster and other's amusement.)

Raggs. I got that you meant we played without a 12. I just chuckled and then let it fly on by.

Truthfully if Exeter had won last week I think there could have been a real chance we would have mugged them at the Ricoh. However, with the lose they are gonna be pumped, making it a tough day. BUT the boys are playing well and we are both missing players so....... COYW.

If you don't expect to win at home against another premiership team you can't have trophy aspirations.

They just lost st home to a wuss team who themselves were stripped of a fair few international players. And it doesn't sound like a fluke.
