Race for the Premiership!

Post by chipnchase » Sun Mar 15, 2009 11:22 am

With Leeds dropping points yesterday and Exeter having two games in hand but 9 points adrift can they pip them to the post? Will we see some new boys in the GP? or will Exeter regret that one draw of the season?

If you ask me it should be two up two down anyway!

One thing's for sure.... the next few weeks are going to be a real test for Backy's leadership skills.
Today is yesterday's tomorrow.

Come on Exeter!
I'd like to see Matt Cornwell back playing in the Premiership.

A new team in the premiership would be great, a new ground to visit and a real West country team. Keep up the good work Exeter.

Shows that the gulf between bottem prem and top NL1 is not that wide any more!!!

Exeter beat Nottingham 15-14 away and are now just 5 points behind Leeds with one game in hand.

Too lazy to find the answer so I'll just ask, do Exeter and Leeds have to play each other again still?

Selfishly I'd still like Leeds in the GP.

It's the only ground I can get to without disappearing for half the weekend.

And they have cheerleaders.

as a staunch advocate of relegation / promotion i would like to see exeter come up for next season, reward for their hard work and a sign to the other clubs that it can be done.

i suspect leeds will win through though.
if you are happy and you know it, you are unusual.

I have not managed to see the Leeds cheerleaders yet, Kinny.

How do they compare to the latest Super 14 ladies?

Those Super 14 ladies are lovely.

Where the Leeds ones have the edge though, is that when you get home from work they will have exercised your whippets and have a good pie on the table.

The other distinct advantages of the Leeds cheerleaders have over their Southern Hemisphere ones are:

1. They are over here are opposed to over there;

2. It is usually colder in Leeds.
