Lots of good English performances this weekend. Lawrence and Obano really catching the eye in this game.

Then Spencer is a bit slow and gifts an opportunity that's taken well.

Matter of inches that. Still not sure it's off. It'd be going by Obanos feet wouldn't it there?

Commentary team saying losers might not get home semi - surely that only applies to Bath as Toulouse have a huge PD over Quins?

Shame for Bath, deserved to get something out of that match - can't believe I'm saying that, looks like I'm finally over Bath's years of poaching LI's best players/academy ...

Every time I watch Exeter, I am amazed that referees allow them to approach the breakdown the way they do. Two or three huge guys hitting it at speed and at angles where there is zero chance that they will stay on their feet. It’s dangerous, and it effectively seals off the ball without a proper context.

And as I type it, Amukeshvili penalises them and says “You can’t enter like that - you have to stay on your feet.”. More of the same, please, sir.

Serious question. Do Exeter get an easier draw if they lose? As itsvthe last pool game they will know. I assume.

I am not sure Exeter thought Bayonne would be interested in this game.

Their easiest option was to win easily and get Glasgow at home.

They are in a tricky spot now, but look like they still fancy winning the game

I think if they take at least a point from the game they get a visit from La Rochelle, if they take nothing they host Bath.

I know it is not their style, but it feels like Exeter should have taken a couple of shots at goal in that phase of play, get the back within a score.
