Exeter Chiefs reach the Premiership Final for the 4th year in a row by defeating Saints 42-12 in the semi.  That's 4 Finals out of 9 years in the Premiership!  Not bad for a side who were tipped to last just the one season before being sent back to the Championship.  It's been quite some journey to enjoy as a Chiefs fan and being in the Prem still feels as sopecial to me as it did in season 1.  I think this is also Rob Baxter's approach to it and I'm sure he encourages the players to see it as a privilege to be enjoyed.  You can certainly see how much they love playing for the club and each other.  Not everyone enjoys the Chiefs style of play but then we are still developing and haven't quite cracked the European competition yet.  If you look at Sarries there was a time when lots of fans didn't like their style but they persevered and developed into one heck of a team.  Like the Chiefs they clearly enjoy playing and appear to have a togetherness about their performances.  Maybe this is what it takes to come out on top in the Prem and the Final should be an intriguing battle.  Sarries certainly know how to win big finals and will be looking to impose their game on the Chiefs who are still smarting after last years defeat.  A lot will hinge on what Rob Baxter refers to as 'moments' that present themselves in a game and how they are handled, be they positive or negative.  I for one can't wait to watch the game at Twickenham and end the day having shouted myself hoarse.
