Exeter to Dublin Sunday Night highly unlikely, except on the team charter. Quick look at GB Rail Timetable will get you to London/Birmingham before midnight after leaving Exeter St Davids after 8:30pm. Early flights from LHR, LGW, LCY, BHX. Cheap fares on trains available from 12 weeks of travel.[/quote]
Thanks Hornet those seem to be the options unless Ryanair / Aerlingus put on an extra flight from Exeter or Bristol . Remember it took a while to get out of the ground the last time. Looks like it's Monday so !.[/quote]
Bit the bullet goin on the 8.05 out of Bristol Monday morning.

Is this from the Leinster allocation or did you get it from the chiefs site?

Got it from the Chiefs site, was on the East terrace Central last time fantastic atmosphere, it's like terrace C in Northampton, the centre of the shed etc. Even if we get an allocation there (which I doubt as it's usually their high demand spot) it's a terrace so we can still get together. For my money this is the place to be , full of great fans !. :clap:

Bit worried that the crowd will be able to intimidate the ref.

No.
Only 2 (iirc) small areas at the corners of the main stand.

Hi all chiefs fan just to update you changes to the ground since you last visited, The capacity of the ground increased to 13000 from 1050 for the world cup the east terrace is much bigger about twice the size and central tickets will be in short supply as this is where season ticket holders are allocated. you'll need to get your spot early if you want to be together as usually pretty full an hour before kick off. The main grandstand was increased in size so some seated places will be available. Away allocation is usually north terrace and south seating. there is a bar at each corner of the ground and a big marque behind the south stand open to all. the bars inside the main grandstand are members only pre match but open to all post match with enterainment laid on until late with a disco in the marque post match getting bus back into town is much better organised an frequent so wont as bad getting out of the ground hope this helps

Exeter take 4 points and Glasgow nothing.

Not a bad result for us.

A win in Scotstoun would put us in a great position.

Frankly a losing bp for us would be an achievement.
A 4-1 would be even better.
Glasgow are the sort of team that would exploit Adam Byrne's defence unfortunately.

Ah stop now, a LBP isn't 'an achievement' away against a Pro12 who we beat regularly.

SOB, Sexton and Fardy back too. They'll be fearing us come over.

What happened to the 'sleepwalking into disaster' this weekend btw?

I hope our lack of losing BP doesn't cost us come Jan.
Our set piece is a shambles.
Saturday will be interesting to say the least!

It didn't happen did it but only because Franno abd Reggie got the finger out. It was avoided because the risk was pointed out.

Fraser Brown looked bad enough going off. Will Turner start next week?

Anyone else due back from injury?
