Exciting last 20 mins.I’m an even prouder Devonian this evening . Not the prettiest game but full of the guts and determination that makes rugby the great game that it is . Two great European games with West Country rugby teams coming out on top .
Yes not a good look for a full back. It is a bit of a mystery why they signed him. They certainly don't play to his strengths.
He does throw his fair share of miracle balls (as Jiffy calls them). Did he look is really the question. I doubt he did and Nowell has a bit of a record of doing that so he probably should have done.In your opinion Handel do you think Finn even saw Nowell?
He still has the eye for the unexpected of course but an error like that is very uncharacteristic these days. Good game of rugby as it was, you have to feel for the Racing boys though, it leaves you feeling like a crime was committed when such positivity goes unrewarded in sport. Fair play to Exeter, no shortage of commitment, deserved I would say.

With Sexton past it, Anscombe crocked, Ford unable to defend the 10 channel and Farrell pencilled in for the 12 shirt there is a 10 shirt going begging on the next Lions tour. Finn didn't do himself any favours. Gatland will look at that and then look at Biggar.
Exeter have to decide what to do next. Do they carry on as they are or try for a more expansive game? They are very effective but you wouldn't call them easy on the eye.
