Congratulations to Tony Rowe , Rob Baxter and the whole Exeter team on their European Champions Cup success. I feel confident that a team assembled legitimately has won Europe’s top prize.

Congratulations exeter. Really entertaining game. Great defensive set. Too many missed kicks by racing, silly intercept pass and refused to go for a drop goal.

Not at all to take away though from a great Exeter performance and season

And well done to Maunder and Hidalgo-Clyne. Two scrum halves who many on here thought weren't good enough to be back ups to Care. You are now European champions.

Please explain to me what Maunder & Hidalgo-Clyde did to influence that result ... they just happened to be there ... that is a lesson for life and sport ... “right place, right time”

Congrats to Exeter ... fantastic achievement ... Exeter’s man of the match was Finn Russell ... a man who has started to believe his own publicity ... directly responsible for 2 Exeter tries in the 2nd half

Think about how this weekend has demonstrated what a nonsense “ring fencing” is ... Bristol & Exeter have just won the 2 European trophies ... 10 years ago they were both in the Championship

The match winning turnover in the dying minutes.

The crucial turnover in the dying minutes of the game.

Yeah? OK.

(Looks at Leeds, Bedford, London Welsh, etc)

Bristol were a temporarily embarrassed big club. Exeter had the South West at their mercy and grew the team over a period of years to get into the Premiership. Both had stadia and fans.

They're really rare breeds and there's no obvious analogues for them in the Championship. Ring-fencing doesn't have to be in perpetuity, but the Premiership is putting actual proper teams with proper crowds and proper grounds in financial difficulties, let alone the minnows in the lower tiers.

It was indeed a good final, hard fought by both sides, but on balance the right team took the trophy.

My viewing was irritated by the massive banners of the cheating previous cup holders in the stands opposite the cameras, surely that was not necessary.

I didn't see those banners to which you refer, but do you think that just for once you could stop droning on, and on, and on about blasted Saracens?!

Re SHC, I thought it was more a case that we already had two SH signed up, and there was no way he was going to hang around as 3rd choice for us.  I would have happily kept him but do not blame him for not staying (or the club not offering him a deal).

IMHO, best CC final of the past decade.

Exeter deserved this and will hopefully complete a double next weekend - Well run club, supportive owner, friendly and passionate supporters, with great playing and coaching teams!

As others have said one of the best finals for a very long time
Could have gone either way but well done Chiefs
Also does go to show that you can spend up to UK salary cap nd compete at the top table
