Get in! Well done Brizzle will catch highlights later
The main talking point may be Dickson's failure to send off his former teammate Sinckler for screaming an obscenity at him. It was screamed so loud it was clearly audible on TV at least as loud as the commentators. LCD's tackle on Sinckler was a penalty but screaming at the ref and including foul language should have been more than a talking to.

Sam Simmonds running down Randall to prevent a try was pretty impressive as well.

Brizzle well worth the win. They were really up for it. Good line speed. Impressive defence. Decent enough pack and a good set of backs.

Yeah they deserved the win. Both teams had good defence and set piece. Bristol edged the scrum and just had more spark in attack. Very physical game, I thought Attwood was key for Bristol in the tight battle. Randall got man of the match.

It's going to be interesting to see if Exeter change tactics now. Good possibility that at last other teams are getting a strategy together.
Even though we are far from the finished article we had them rattled in the first half!

So after 6 rounds we are 5 points behind Exeter and 2nd place! I’ll take that :smt023

...and you know what? I reckon if we'd played Newcastle and Saints that gap would only be 3 points :smt023

We still haven’t been allocated our 4 points. A long shot, I know, but if the European games get canned for next week, might we see the local derby played then?
I find your lack of faith......disturbing.

Expect the attacking success to continue, and more for the team's set up to be so.
Less contact training due to the risks of Covid and concussion.
It'll start to show up the average meat head and it is about time!
Interesting take. Not so sure myself. I think it was just one of those games.
You're not sure though.
Bath came back from the first lockdown looking physically superior, they're still having strong starts in matches but it's possible that they are starting to fade with fatigue and that is opening up more space.
Personally if it protects players health long term then I'm all for it.
It's not what we've become used to but it's certainly entertaining.
We will see.
I think all the other matches in this round show it's still the exception rather than the rule.

Wondered what Sinckler was apologising for on Twitter.

Exeter without a lot of top players the last couple of weeks and playing good teams.

They will be there at the end no doubts on that.

They don't normally get allocated until the other matches have been played and the committee have met to agree their allocation.

Very much a well deserved win for Bristol - keeps the regular season honest.Fire and desire along with stardust , a potent combination.

Although Sinckler probably was rightly peed off for Cowan-Dickie's "tackle", swearing at the ref in frustration is not the way to go about it. Had it not been a former teammate Dickson refereeing I suspect Sinckler might have been red carded.
