Cannot argue with any of that they are in a different league to us in terms of the quality of their squads

marlowish, do you have a couple of quid you could let the Club have so we can sign better players perchance?

I donít think itís anything to do with the quality of the squads. You could argue there are many stronger squads that Exeterís. What they are both doing though, is building teams. Something we and many other clubs seem to be lacking.

Yes, both Saracens and Exeter are successful because they're a tight knit bunch of players. In the old days Saracens would buy in galacticos, only for the team to fall apart when the going got tough. Brendan Venter managed to weld Saracens together into a real team and Rob Baxter and co have achieved the same thing with Exeter. I'd say Deano is doing something along the right lines at Newcastle.

But Northampton, Harlequins, Bath, Leicester - we all seem to have lost that in recent years and are struggling as a result.
