"Exeter Chiefs Director of Rugby Rob Baxter (Image: Dan Mullan/Getty Images))22:15KEY EVENTMATCH REPORT - Bristol Bears put another huge dent in Exeter Chiefs' play-off hopesExeter Chiefs’ play-off dreams now hang by the thinnest of threads after suffering their first ever loss at Ashton Gate as Bristol Bears defeated them 40-33 on Friday night. The hosts strided to victory thanks to tries from Callum Sheedy, Charles Piutau’s brace, Alapati Leiua - scoring on his final appearance at Ashton Gate before moving to France in the summer, Toby Fricker and Luke Morahan. Along with Leuia, John Afoa and Dave Attwood were also making their final Ashton Gate appearances in Bristol Bears colours, getting a dreamy send-off before they move on to their new clubs. Chiefs put up a good fight with scores from Santiago Grondona, Josh Hodge, James Kenny and Olly Woodburn making it a more than a competitive contest but were second best for most of the contest.
What we're lacking is the technical detail across the board. ""You see the influence Charles Piutau has, we need to get more people technically up to do, the kick, the chase. "We've got to learn to not go into our shells, we need to get better, get our fundamentals right, and that's an area that we'll be driving hard over the pre-season. ""We went out there and played with no fear. ""We went out there and won against a team that really need to win. We had to be at our best out there tonight, and it was good to see. "Bristol Bears director of rugby Pat Lam (Photo: Robbie Stephenson/JMP)22:19John EvelyReaction from Exeter director of rugby Rob Baxter"We are done on the play-offs, aren't we? Two points tonight. I think we are done.

He adds a couple more defenders beaten to his stats sheet with his explosive dancing feet. 40-2876 minsJohn EvelyDesperation from ChiefsExeter need the ball back and Sam Skinner clearly comes around the side of a ruck to try and steal it back. The result is a penalty in favour of the Bears who kick up-field.
Mathematically, maybe not, I am not sure. "It is disappointing. I think today has kind of highlighted that we have got to move on. I've said to the lads 'get your heads up, but at the same time open your eyes and believe at some stage that we have to move on', which means we have to move forward as players. "I think we have become a little bit stubborn as a group of players as to where we are moving on and what we want to do and how we want to go and achieve things, and actually they need to stop and open their eyes and move forward. We've got to be better. "We can't just stand here and go 'we can just be the same people and next season we will just win'. It won't work like that.

Premiership: Video highlights as Sale, Exeter and Bristol go two from twoCheck out the highlights from the second round of the Premiership, which saw another exciting weekend of action. Northampton Saints and London Irish opened proceedings on Saturday as the Midlanders responded well to last weekend’s defeat to Sale Sharks by overcoming the Exiles. Early pacesetters Speaking of Sale, they are the early pacesetters as they claimed their second bonus-point triumph in succession following a comfortable win over Bath, despite being down to 14 men after just eight minutes. They are joined on two victories by Bristol Bears, who defeated Wasps, and Exeter Chiefs, who were too strong for financially-stricken Worcester Warriors. Last season’s Premiership champions Leicester Tigers kick-started their campaign by beating Newcastle Falcons and, finally, the big London derby saw Saracens claim the spoils against Harlequins.

We have got to improve as individuals and as a team. There is a lot of work to be done, and it kind of starts now. "You will see a type of new Exeter in some ways - there is a changing of quite a few players - and without doubt, I would like us to be a different Exeter to this season.
