Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Exeter Chiefs were crowned European champions for the first time yesterday evening following a thrilling 31-27 win over Racing 92 at Ashton Gate.
Both teams traded tries throughout, in what many are calling the most entertaining Champions Cup final off all-time, as Rob Baxter’s side continue their incredible journey since been promoted from the Championship a decade ago.
Mercurial outhalf Finn Russell did his best to drag Racing to victory but at times his maverick style of play was punished, and against a team like Exeter, that’s not gonna bode well for you.
But that still doesn’t stop us from being in complete awe of his incredible warm-up routine that has everyone talking.
