I was astonished pre-season that we weren't rated higher by the media with the squad we assembled. Just before the season started, we had a few more mentions and I reckon most fans were genuinely hopeful.
We started disappointingly, disjointedly, bloody awful lineouts etc; we seem to have settled (a little)...a cup final and today we could've gone second, so lots of promise, but it's not quite happened yet has it??
We've some superb players. Tom Curry, Faf, Ashton all pretty much world class; Akker Van Der Merwe could be one of the best in the Prem if he gets his throwing sorted (seems to be doing) and RJVR's superb. Throw in Sam James, Solomona, Yarde (at 100%) Ben Curry, the Du Preezes, it's a hell of a side and squad.
With the Sarries stuff and other teams losing players to the 6 nations, surely we've got to be Exeter's main challengers?? Are we though?? Nowt more leading than that, where (about half way through the season) do you think we'll end up now?
