Personally I think we are very much in a relegation battle and I do think a so called Rugby giant will be relegated this season and a lot will come down to luck and by that I mean injuries, how many players are lost to national duty, it will also come down to who reacts first and decisively, these things do not just fix themselves. We have issues without doubt our squad is just not good enough, without injuries we have a competitive 23 with injuries we have a competitive 15 and recently it has really showed when you compare when opposition go to the bench and when we do, Friday was a really good example, and we do not appear to have a playing style the players genuinely look confused.

As for Rob Baxter I have played many times against him, he is a proper one club man, boy and child he has Exeter running through his veins the club truly means something to him and Tony Rowe you cannot buy that.

On another note I can remember watching Bath as a child when we regularly played the likes of Berry Hill and Lydney before the revolution of Jack Rowell, we have strived since Jack's departure to replace him and if we are honest we have failed to do so.

I will always love the Club but it is heartbreaking to hear promises and rhetoric from senior management about Challenging for trophies and titles and in reality we are trying to build a castle on foundations made of sand.. I feel sorry for all the supporters and also the players past and present who deserve better.
