Exeter Chiefs announce side to face Saracens

Comments (0)

Rob Baxter has announced his team to face Saracens on Saturday.

Frustrated by certain events last week, Baxter says some honest assessment within the Chiefs group has proved fruitful ahead of the Devon club’s first-ever visit to the new, state-of-the-art Allianz Park.

“Looking at last week’s game, yes we were disappointed, but I think we were frustrated more than anything else,” said the Exeter coach. “Those feelings come more from the fact that we just lost our way a little bit.

What happened was not through a lack of trying, or a lack of physicality, endeavour and effort, it was more a lack of composure from ourselves and individuals trying too hard to turn the game that for a long time wasn’t going away from us

“We made some fundamentals mistakes, we gave up some silly penalties, and all of a sudden the momentum of the game changed. That’s for us to deal with moving forward, but having had an honest and open assessment this week, I’m confident that none of the issues were from anything more than guys wanting to do well.
