8 mins gone; Lyon have already scored two tries!!! 0-14.
Great start from Lyon.

Still expect Exeter to win this though..

Munster fans calling Wayne Barnes a “racist” for his performance against them.

For me Barnes had a good game and the few things he missed were lenient decisions for Munster when they should have had cards

Lyon don't have the nous to protect a lead, allowed Exeter back into the game with poor decision making and discipline (pulling hair, thought they'd see a card for that).

If it is them (Eggseter) next week I'd fancy our scrum and line out to have the upper hand. We'll need to keep them out of our 22 like we did against Munster tho.
The odds are good but the goods are odd.

Thing is, the four times Munster entered our half we gave away penalties. Exeter would come away with 24 poi ts from that!

Lyon are very sloppy in possession in attack. They're getting into good positions but making silly mistakes.

"Hoggy" was made a mug of twice there before a cynical foul right on the line. He should be having a ten minute rest.

Visitors to Sandy Park have to work very hard and be accurate in attack. A big, strong awkward pack of 10 forwards who don't buy dummies from anybody.

If we play our ‘A’ game - we should have enough to beat Exeter

Yeah, I withdraw my earlier comment although Exeter's scrum looks to drive very early to me.

And if Exeter bring their "A" game too, it could come down to the bounce of a ball, IMO...

This is one of the maddest comments Ive ever seen on MF;

“Kidney could get us back on the road if given support.
The task is now too big for an O Gara / Young coach.”

At least we have a more structured game than Lyon - FFS you don’t have to look for miracle offload every time

That was a huge missed call by the ref. So bloody obvious and could have led to a Lyon try and a man in the bin for Exeter. Not saying Exeter dont deserve the win, but that was a game changing clanger by the officials.
