Couple of ‘interesting’ comments on FGR fan boards. One saying I’m’surprised at how dirty Exeter are’!! A couple of others suggesting that we had an advantage because the ref was from Devon!! Couldn’t make it up!
Perhaps they were hoping for another impartial Devonian Hutt Brextable ?

Maxted is a conundrum.

He can make exceptional reactionary saves which he has done particularly yesterday and in the home match against the Vegans and earned us at least four points from those stops, and then he can make glaring errors and cost us ££££'s as he did in the F A Cup. He has also shown signs of indecision as he did at Bradford, as well as other times when he punches when he should catch/collect which keeps the pressure on the defence, particularly as he does have quite a hefty boot on him and could quickly turn defence into attack

In the everyday run of things I am not overly confident in his general decision making on catching or punching, it could be this 'indecisiveness' which has led to him making the errors, despite yesterday I will be happier when Ward is back between the sticks, but he has proved a good backup (unlike poor old James Hamon last season).

You can add Salford away to the exceptional saves list, we’d have gone home empty handed if it wasn’t for Jonny that day.

Strange that we are being referred to as 'hard' and tough and physical. But I suppose when you have Parkes Bowman and Atangana in your team you aren't going to lay over and be walked on

Absolutely. We had a DISADVANTAGE with a ref coming from Devon : overcompensation!

I don’t want to raise a negative on yesterday as it was an incredible outing by all but Williams was very frustrating yesterday. I lost count of the times he failed to beat his man/looked sluggish. Maybe a games rest would do him well.
You're right that Randall was largely unsuccessful against his full back and unusually was unable to cut back inside to have a go with his better left peg. Also a fact that Richardson looked out of sorts in trying to cope with playing on the left, a fact which FGR seized upon and targetted. However both players worked manfully and played their part in a magnificent team performance.

I wonder if Matt considered switching them round at all, or perhaps he thought that once we switched to 4 at the back Williams would not be up to playing as an old fashioned full back. Question has to be asked.

About time we had a streetwise team with some strong characters,remember Clive whitehead etc,we have been too nice for quite a while and the team is a reflection of our manager,he wants to win !
