Well we seem to have been written off by all media, Saints etc. You would think we'd done nothing all season and just appeared at the top with no merit.
With luck we won't have shoelace gate, against Saints like a while back when every two minutes and every set piece player laces needed attention. We've already played Wasps and Quins who must have written the book on gamesmanship and how to break up games by time wasting time, taking the knee and suddenly be fit as a fiddle when questioned by the ref.

I have a lot of Respect for Saints lets hope they come to play in the right spirit, and not try and win by any means as their predecessors.

Although you say you have respect for saints I think you are being quite disrespectful to saints in your comments. Where do you get that Saints have written you off? I think if you look carefully Saints fans and Chris Boyd have the highest regards for Exeter and their achievements and I think I could say that if Exeter reach the final then the majority of saints fans would be backing them no matter the opponents.
Additionally your comment about hoping they come to play in the right spirit and comparing them to others who you have blasted basically as cheats, Iíd love to know when Saints have ever come to Sandy park and did otherwise but play in the right spirit because personally I canít remember such an occasion.

Exeter have got to the top on merit and have continually improved since I remember watching them as a neutral in the 2nd leg against Bristol when promoted, a few end of season games lost does not make them less than they really are.
