I hate to break it to you, but Stuart Hooper was born in Exeter (we shared a maternity ward in Heavitree hospital), grew up just a few miles up the road in Crediton and played age-grade rugby for Devon. I canít believe the powers-that-be have let him stay in charge of Bath for such a key game.

Of course thereís a possibility that Hooper has a professional reputation to uphold and he wonít let the accident of his birth impact on his preparation for the game or his decision-making today, but best not leave it to chance eh?

I think head to head comparisons are valid but only so far and your main point bo is spot on. You look at Opti's joint team on head to heads and we would keep most of our team with probably 5 or 6 from chiefs

But collectively the chiefs XV on the pitch nearly always performs well above which comes back to the key question, why?

Is it because actually our assessments [and that of international teams] is wrong and the Exeter players are for really far better individually than we give credit for?

Is it superior s and c?

Is it in the team coaching so that style of play matches player skillset and/or the game better than others?

Is it higher levels of motivation and psychological coaching?

Or something else?

What a lovely thread and nice sporting comments from fellow rugby enthusiasts in the West Country.

It is of course looking like a very close match.

However as Opti points out above first half against Saracens - strong, second half - sadly weak. Just a question of how much our squad has learnt within themselves.

I recall last season watching a few games with Exeter against other teams where they were leading say 20 -10 with 2 minutes to go having scored three tries and they invariably got the the fourth try even though they had obviously won the match the pressure and drive was to get the bonus point...........we are still short of that mindset.

Given all the variables of the delayed season, delayed European matches, empty stadiums, forfeited games, forced Sarries relegation et al the end of season is more of a Grand National than a Derby. IMHO both semis and the final could go either way. At final knockings the chaos of the season may have more relevance to the outcome than the form book.

your post is totally irrelevant. are you saying that Pearce wouldn't allow conscious or unconscious bias just because he is a professional? it has happened many times before especially with southern hemp refs. the reason they went to third party refs for internationals was because 'home' refs could no longer be trusted.
rugby is a sport where the laws are often unfathomable, and where multiple infractions by both sides at any given point in the game can be interpreted entirely subjectively. red team is pinged for going off feet while blue team is ignored for going in at the side. unfortunately referees have far too much power to decide the outcome of games.
why, when you have just two games on a weekend and a whole raft of officials to choose from, would you elect a referee from Exeter?

well I hope bath win but the odds are cleary with the home side. I believe Bath are as good, if not better, on paper but the chiefs have more experience in these high pressure games and know how to win. they are mentally more durable.
I was impressed by baxter in the Toulouse game when he was utterly confident that chiefs would weather the French first half onslaught and go on to outlast them. exeter are the better-coached team and baxter knows how to get the very best out of all of them. hatley has done well for the last few months but it is just a few months. baxter has been there for years.
to win we will have to take all our chances. more importantly we will have to play hard for the full 80.
good luck, boys!

Good idea, please do that.

Just out of interest, when you played sport did you ever shake hands afterwards? I am sure there have been times when that was a painful thing to do but all part of sport. If Ex win today I will probably hope they win the final too, they will have earned it, not least because of the final table.

A technical point here. You cannot allow unconscious bias, by definition. If you allow something you are conscious of it

Anyway I took the post by EXDJ as a light hearted dig on the earlier ones and not to be taken seriously and actually I thought it pretty amusing

Yes, exactly that. If anything Iím expecting him to overcompensate and give Bath all the 50:50s.
Very different with the internationals, where the refs are paid by the national Union (which also determines their career development) and so clear conflict of interest.

Worth also noting that Pearce is from Wales originally, with a Welsh dad and is a former player for Exeter Saracens, the other Exeter club (and historic rivals for Chiefs).

Having reffed in the World Cup, he is seen as one of the best refs in the country and has given plenty against Exeter when heís reffed the Chiefs recently.

Luke Pearce is just as likely to be harbouring a secret desire to see Chiefs win as Stuart Hooper.

Indeed thatís what I was aiming for but it turns out the Internet is never the best place for that sort of thing so Iíve been forced to clarify that, for the record, Iím expecting the reffing will be pretty fair...

Quite agree, and i think the officials were willing to give a red if they'd had an camera angle.

Not sure Bath are getting the breaks they need...they don't look like scoring..against the yellow, so need to fluke something..then it will be game on.

Apologies for being negative but too many basic errors, sadly Exeter just too good for us.

They are. But I am not hugely disheartened given how far this team has come in a short time.

As long as we can continue to improve and aim to be at home for a SF next season

I'm struggling to think of a singe Exeter mistake. They have played superbly.
We've thrown everything at them and they've absorbed it all and returned it with interest.

I'm .... not sure we are going to win this.

P.s. I hate pre-binding to drive the ball carrier. Both side do it. Should be outlawed. Find it oh-so dull.
