埃克塞特酋長隊。老闆羅布-巴克斯特敦促俱樂部 "掌握命運

埃克塞特老闆羅布-巴克斯特說他的球隊必須 "掌握自己的命運"。

近兩周前,他們艱難地戰勝了倫敦愛爾蘭隊,結束了三連敗,因為埃克塞特的目標是重返季後賽,上賽季他們自2015年以來首次錯過了季後賽。

"巴克斯特告訴BBC體育說:"我們有一種很好的能量,有點反彈的感覺。

"我們談論的是把這種能量和活力帶到比賽中去,並在那裡努力把握我們的賽季,繼續做事情。

"這就是我們現在的關鍵,它是繼續做事情,看起來像一支想要掌握自己命運的球隊。"

排在第六位的埃克塞特距離第四位的哈雷金斯只有兩分,後者少打了一場比賽,而落後於第三位的北安普頓四分,後者比德文郡的球隊多打了一場比賽。

但是,儘管領頭羊薩拉森斯以九戰九勝的完美記錄位居榜首,但後面幾個位置的競爭非常激烈,第三名的聖徒和第八名的巴斯之間只有7分。

"巴克斯特補充說:"對我們來說,英超聯賽還有很多,我們離前四名還有很長的路要走。

"在薩拉森之外,你可以看出結果是相當多變的,我們也是其中之一,我們必須開始有那麼一點額外的一致性來幫助我們爬上積分榜。"


Exeter boss Rob Baxter says his side must "take hold of its destiny".

Their hard-fought win over London Irish almost two weeks ago ended a three-game losing streak as Exeter aim to return to the play-offs having missed them for the first time since 2015 last season.

"There's a nice energy about us, a bit of a bounce," Baxter told BBC Sport.

"What we've talked about is taking that energy and vibrancy into the game and getting out there and trying to take hold of our season and get on with things.

"That's the key for us now, it's getting on with things and looking like a team that wants to take hold of its destiny."

Sixth-placed Exeter are two points off fourth-placed Harlequins, who have played a game less, and four behind third-placed Northampton who have played one more game than the Devon side.

But while leaders Saracens have a perfect record at the top of the table with nine wins from nine, the race for the next few places is very close with seven points between Saints in third and eighth-placed Bath.

"There's a lot in the Premiership still for us, we're a long way off being out of the top four," added Baxter.

"Outside of Saracens you can tell that results have been pretty changeable, and we've been one of that group, and we've got to start having that little bit of extra consistency to help us climb the table."
