Rob Baxter, Exeter Chiefs director of rugby: “Wednesday’s win has pretty much put us, I know it’s not quite mathematically done, but we’re very close to securing that home semi-final.
“I think we need one more match point or for teams below us to make up a huge points difference over these last few games.
“Again, I’ve said it before, I can’t credit the players enough for what they have achieved so far. The results and the points we’ve collected, it’s allowed us now to go fast into Sunday’s game against Saracens with a nice, fresh, enthusiastic group – and with a clear mindset of what we want to achieve. Personally, I’m really looking forward to the game and I think the players are as well.”
