Exeter are my local premiership side and I would not pay to watch them, a number of issues including the cost but i find them a hard watch tbh. However, why change a winning formula and not as boring as England atm

Exeter looked very impressive. Glasgow had 8 internationals but were just brushed aside.
It was a shame it wasn't a dry day...Chiefs would have racked up a huge score if it was.
Simmonds immaculate off the tee again.
Ewers, Williams, LCD, Hill, Simmonds S could easily fit into an England pack
Impressive looking side.

Absolute nonsense. Scotland gets a disproportionately large share of the council tax redistribution grant, which is just about the only thing keeping the country afloat. UK government doesn't want an independent Scotland because it would feel obliged to bail it out, just like it bailed out the Republic of Ireland, which has shown precious little gratitude for the favour it received.

Reality is Exeter are know their game plan & are utterly efficient at following it thru’. Glasgow are regressing. They used to be very competitive when the their internationals were unavailable, but no longer. There were some big names, long term players in the Glasgow squad, but they seem done. May be some lean years coming for both Scottish sides.

Saracen fan here (yes vote me down) but I was not involved in the board deciding to breach the salary cap. So before the down votes please realise that it could happen to your club too. All Prem Rugby teams need to not just have their salary schemes monitored but PUBLISH them. It is the only way to go. Bristol, Bath & SW Comms Utd (aka Exeter) are you listening?

Throwing stones in a glass house aren’t going to help Sarries back to the prem. Chiefs have nothing to hide nor Bath. Bristol have been spending big so not so sure there. You’re right it should be done though to prevent abuse of salary cap

I agree that all teams should be monitored and it was doubtless the other teams that kept a torch shining on Sarries. I am still baffled why Sarries get to keep the accolades for the prizes they gained from their accountant however. I would hope that if it were ever proved that Chiefs, or any other side, broke the rules they too would be punished.

More importantly, EPRL needs to get its' house in order. Make the salary cap rules clear and precise, ensure that they line up with the tax laws and regulations operated by HMRC and then manage the situation in an even-handed manner rather than going after the club whose chairman poked the big bear. Transparency of accounts will be difficult because the clubs all have different legal structures.

Nilled. To think not long ago Glasgow were Pro-14 Champions and yearly contenders. A team to fear. Losing a few players of class. Sure. But the system should be bringing up some new players.

Bristol do have a handful of some expensive players, however their squad is also full of home grown youth.

There are also many players from just over the border in Wales where they were not given the time or day because of the WRU funded players blocking their game time and hopes for international selection.

Outside Bristols XV the depth is not that great. Sarries had 3 premiership sides.

I was fearing this result, but not a big surprise, around 12 players left at the end of last season with no real effort to replace them - SRU funding has generally gone Edinburghs way over the last few seasons.

Zander was the only first choice player in that front row. Kebble I’m not convinced about, he looks huge which is fine but he really struggles to get low enough to compete, Sutherland is a long way ahead of him. I like George Turner but Brown and Mcinally are ahead of him for now and he went off relatively early in the game to a head injury. Definite stretch to call that a Scotland first choice

Some external investment and devolution of control of the two Scottish pro teams would give them more of a competitive edge.

Saracen fan here (yes vote me down) but I was not involved in the board deciding to breach the salary cap. So before the down votes please realise that it could happen to your club too. All Prem Rugby teams need to not just have their salary schemes monitored but PUBLISH them. It is the only way to go. Bristol, Bath & SW Comms Utd (aka Exeter) are you listening?

Money, money, money.... this is what happens when you buy up the opposition's leading players. Just to perpetuate this - Scottish taxes have gone to Westminster, Westminster money goes to the RFU bailout, the RFU money filters down to Exeter, Saracens, Bristol etc. A note to Scotland - despite England's scaremongering before hand, Ireland has been SOOOOO much better off since Independence

Absolute nonsense. Scotland gets a disproportionately large share of the council tax redistribution grant, which is just about the only thing keeping the country afloat. UK government doesn't want an independent Scotland because it would feel obliged to bail it out, just like it bailed out the Republic of Ireland, which has shown precious little gratitude for the favour it received.

Eddie for the most part isn't selecting them. Stuart is better than Williams. Nobody is better than Big Bill at 8 so S Simmonds has no chance. Any centre is better on the wing than any winger in the country, other than May. 10 is closed shop, I realise that both lads are talented. Point being most of Exeter beys other than Slade would play for their club. I do concede it's irrelevant. EnjoyXmas ??

Glasgow were never going to win that game but losing it the way they did is like going back to the days when Glasgow was first formed. Totally outclassed, nothing but a decent training run for Exeter. Embarrassing the way the SRU have allowed both Glasgow and Edinburgh to become canon fodder for the bigger teams

Whilst there were mitigating circumstances you aren’t allowed to hit above the shoulders regardless of how you go into the contact, it’s a bit like not being able to touch players in the air. Should have been at least a penalty and arguably a yellow. Officials somehow contrived to amend the rules.

I'm not saying they are cheating so no stones thrown. Just they seem to have a lot of expensive players and unless they publish how do we know? Experienced the same thing with my club and I hope it doesn't happen to you.

Bristol do have a handful of some expensive players, however their squad is also full of home grown youth.

There are also many players from just over the border in Wales where they were not given the time or day because of the WRU funded players blocking their game time and hopes for international selection.

Outside Bristols XV the depth is not that great. Sarries had 3 premiership sides.

First of all - offering a fortune to a South African player so that he then plays in Scotland & qualifies

How is that not akin to club rugby - purchasing their services. Joke.

Second of all, when does they 5 year residency come in (I thought it was already in) wouldn’t they guy be 28 before qualifying?

What a remarkably strange post. What on earth has Eddie got to with this? Utterly irrelevant and a pointless comment. As to the Scarlets deserved win over Bath I’m not sure you can describe a 4 point margin a “big loss”. The 16 point loss by Dragons to Wasps could be described as a “big loss”. I think your very obvious national bias (nothing wrong with that) is very evident in your post ??
