    Chiefs off to HQ

    Exeter Chiefs off to Twickenham next Saturday after demolishing Northampton Saints 42- 12. Finishing top of the league means they will be wearing their black home strip against European champs Saracens. Tom O'Flaherty's 48 minute try was the icing on the cake when a lightning solo run from his...

    Chernobyl

    British-American (HBO) 5 part Miniseries. It's brilliant. The first episode was a trifle slow but really takes off during the second. Get it on Catch Up.

    Chiefs vs Leicester Tigers

    Rob Baxter's men were in fine form having run in 6 tries to crush the lethargic Tigers 40-6. Leicester, who don't take defeat lightly, have since responded by sacking their coach Matt O'Connor after just one league game. Exeter's Openside flanker Mike Kvesic took the man of the match plaudits...

    MotoGP

    The 2018 Argentina MotoGP proved to be an exciting race with GB's Cal Crutchlow taking the chequered flag. Nice to see an English rider leading the 2018 standings and he's not even riding a factory machine. The race seems to have reignited the fierce feud between Spain's Marc Marquez and...

    Exeter Braves

    My lad phoned to say the Braves were playing Gloucester at nearby Royal Wootton Basset RFC's ground. We arrived as the second half was about to commence, however, a heavy mist restricted vision which led the the match being called off with the Brave running out winners to a mighty 0-62 result...

    All Blacks 57 South Africa 0...

    That was the worst defeat in the Springbok's History. So what lies behind the massive fall from grace of this once great and extremely physical team? Rugby in South Africa is very much an Afrikaners game and it was President Mandele who protected it from the vindictiveness of some when apartheit...

    Jack Nowell

    Exeter's Jack Nowell, who lost his place in the England side against France at Twickenham after apparently having time off from training, regains the No14 shirt when he lines up against the Welsh at Cardiff.

    Alan Ball

    A charity shop purchase got me the late Alan Ball's autobiography, Playing Extra Time. The book's previous owner must have been a keen Pompey fan because it contained several cuttings from the local paper full of sympathetic letters regarding Alan's death. Because of Alan's time at City, I...

    Nigel Clough ...

    In a Nigel Clough exclusive in today's Daily Mail, Clough said, "Paul Tisdale at Exeter told me people were calling for his head every week 10 years ago." Clough then went on to say, " They are still League Two, but they are starting work on a new stand and a new Astro-Turf is going down at the...

    Devon born Henry Slade of the Exeter Chiefs..

    Gets his 1st England cap against the French at Twickenham on Saturday. He's lining up at 'outside centre' alongside Sam Burgess who, in my opinion, shouldn't be anywhere near an England jersey at this stage of his 'union' career. Also in the team is Chiefs Geoff Parling, while Luke Cowan-Dickie...

    ... has been diagnosed with alzheimer's disease. Stan, intensely loyal to QPR, was recently voted their greatest ever player by their supporters. It has been said that if he had gone to a bigger club he would have easily added to his 5 England caps.

    Hard luck the Chiefs ...

    ... on just missing the playoffs. However, there's talk that one, or possibly two of the four teams involved in the playoff may be involved in potential breaches of salary-cap rules. The astonishing thing is that the majority of clubs within the league have voted for inquiries into these...

    South Africa U20s 31 England U20s 24

    At one stage England were 21-0 down but a great second half recovery saw them claw their way back into the game. Some bewildering decisions by the Kiwi referee didn't help their cause either. The match finished with England the stronger and with no less than 5 Exeter Chiefs in the team.

    So who's responsible ...

    ... for sucking the life out of banter base? It's been 4 days since anyone has posted here. For all their near the knuckle faults, Poults and Banging_Them_ In kept the discussion pot simmering nicely. The site is the poorer with their absence. I believe Southampton Gull got fed up with his...

    What book are you reading ...

    One of my favourite threads - just wish the original author resubmitted it. Katyn Massacre by Louis Fitzgibbon This book tells of how in 1943 the German army occupying the Soviet Union found the bodies 4,143 Polish army officers in mass graves in the Katyn forest near Smolensk. Still in...
