Baxter’s still up
EXETER director of rugby Rob Baxter remained upbeat despite being held to a 10-10 draw in their opening European Champions Cup game at Sandy Park.
Baxter was confident the Chiefs could make an impact this season.
However, they could manage only one try against MUNSTER from Luke Cowan-Dickie, with Gareth Steenson adding a penalty and a conversion. CJ Stander replied with the visitors’ try, with Joey Carbery kicking a penalty and a conversion. Baxter said: “At the end with a couple of dominant scrums, we missed an opportunity to nick it.”
LEICESTER slumped to a fifth successive defeat in ULSTER, losing 24-10. Alan O’Connor, Will Addison and Jacob Stockdale landed tries for the hosts.
