Thanks tpr.. Very much a 2nd string side, but interested to see Manu included. Seems to indicate he won't be starting next week. Is Alex Goode going to be moved to no. 10 ?

Exeter side for Sunday

15 Phil Dollman
14 Josh Hodge
13 Corey Baldwin
12 Tom Wyatt
11 Facundo Cordero
10 Harvey Skinner
9 Joe Snow
1 Billy Keast
2 Jack Innard
3 Alfie Petch
4 Will Witty
5 Tom Price
6 Sean Lonsdale
7 Richard Capstick
8 Don Armand (capt)

16 Jordon Poole
17 James Kenny
18 Matt Johnson
19 Dave Dennis
20 Aaron Hinkley
21 Will Yarnell
22 Jack Walsh
23 Luke Mehson

Apart from Armand, Losdale and Dollman that's a third XV/Exeter University side so indicates exactly how relevant the Coaches see the fixture as being.

And Cordero is Santi's younger brother. Whether he has his brother's abilities will be discovered on the day.

So Sarries 2nds/3rds v Exeter 3rds: strange days we are living in indeed!

Pretty amazing isnít it how Exeter can put a side out like this and still have a truly massive squad yet stay within the salary cap?

A combination of COVID, Saracens salary breaches, PRL failings, desire for TV money and fixture clash with Champions Cup have changed what would normally be a hum dinger of a match between Englandís top 2 teams into a pretty unimportant match between two devlopmemt teams - should be rebadged A teams

A side like what? Don Armand's probably the biggest earner there. Dollman and Dennis might register. 2/3rds of that squad are academy players. Exeter's squad is so big because it includes the academy. So a lot of those listed as senior players will be in the £24-30K pay range.

Did you really need to bite? Honestly? If you don't know what fishing in a barrel is, you've just neatly demonstrated it.

Finals aside I think we've only really had one decent match up between the teams in the last 4 years. AIs or 6N seem to get in the way most seasons certainly over the 2 legs. This year's home game at SP was probably as close to full strength from both sides as we've seen but the return fixture has been scuppered by quite a few issues this year!

Disappointing as fans to miss out yet again.

Rob Baxter has comprehensively outplayed Smally ...

... In the 'who can field the weakest squad' game!

My attitude to this game is best summed up by a choice between a BBQ invite or watching the game on BT Sports. I chose the BBQ, something that would have been unconscionable in normal circumstances. I will of course watch the recording later.

agreed, tprh - I canít even be bothered to get angry about the characteristic rubbish Rob Baxterís been coming out with in the press over the past day concerning the ďanimosityĒ between the clubs.

Manu is a good player but the 1/4 final of the HC - he'll get swallowed whole by Leinster. Of course Alex Goode will start at 10.

I would guess

Mako
Jamie
Vincent
Maro
Swinson / Kpuko
Rhodes
Jackson
Billy

Wiggy
Alex
Lewington
Brad
Duncs
Maitland
Dailey

Well I shall be watching with interest.

This is basically our Championship team and there's a lot of exciting potential in there much of it already realising itself. Given it's also Chiefs young guns it's entirely possible that large numbers of both squads will be facing each other in a few seasons time when we hopefully return to the Premiership. Just the sort of game where when we beat Chiefs in the European Final in 2022 you can say "I remember seeing the poetntial in X back when they played in 2020" (Sm128)

Do you have any links? I googled 'Rob Baxter Saracens v Exeter' but only found a team announcement interview, commenting mainly on both sides having one eye on next week.

Rugbypass quotes him and I'm not interested in finding any more. Fill your boots! It's not worth getting exercised over.
