A Stuart Hogg try and Hill’s second sealed the win before Ollie Devoto went over against his former club.

Ruthless Exeter dismantle Bath’s gameplan to stay in double hunt

The force is with Exeter on all fronts right now. Already booked in for Saturday’s European Champions Cup final they duly secured their fifth successive Premiership final appearance, courtesy of another hard-edged, physical display to which a shattered Bath ultimately had no answer.

Nothing is ever guaranteed in major finals but it is going to require a mightily resilient team to prevent Exeter picking up at least one piece of silverware over the next fortnight. If Wasps, their domestic final opponents, will have an extra week’s rest before the Twickenham finale they will be facing a team who can outlast just about every opponent these days.

It is not always pretty – hardly a pre-requisite in big knock-out fixtures – but it is most definitely effective. Once their tight forwards have smashed everything in sight and they have notched up

Exeter Chiefs thrash Bath to reach fifth consecutive Premiership final and keep double hopes alive

Hello and welcome to Telegraph Sport’s live coverage of today’s second Gallagher Premiership semi-final between Exeter and Bath at Sandy Park, where the winner will face Wasps at Twickenham in the final on Saturday October 24.

After a thrilling, comprehensive Wasps victory at the Ricoh Arena earlier in the day, this one is expected to be slightly closer. Rob Baxter’s Exeter Chiefs have undoubtedly been the form team since the Premiership’s August restart, but form matters for little in knockout rugby. Bath, who are nigh-on full-strength, are one team who could definitely shock the Chiefs at a crowd-less Sandy Park.

Befitting a Premiership semi-final, there are juicy match-ups to be found all over the field but, as ever, the back-row battle will be most fascincating. Dave Ewers, Jacques Vermeulen and Sam Simmonds against the visitors’ trio of Tom Ellis, Sam Underhill and Taulupe Faletau. Toothsome.

Bath might fancy their

Henry Slade focused on Premiership semi-final despite European-domestic double in sight

Back in May 2017 Henry Slade confirmed his place as a Devon legend.  

With two minutes to go Exeter Chiefs were on their way to a Premiership semi-final loss to bitter rivals Saracens. After dominating the scrum Exeter won a penalty. Slade was handed the ball and his left foot took Exeter from well in their own half to the Saracen five-yard line. The line out was formed and the clock was now in the red. A minute later Sam Simmonds was over the line and Exeter had miraculously made it into the final. If it wasn’t for that wonder-kick from Slade Exeter would not have won their first and only Premiership title. 

But asked if he ever thinks about what would have happened if that kick had not been that kick, Slade shrugs. 

“It happened and we did it, so I’ve not
