Don Armand says the Exeter Chiefs have not given up hope of progressing in this season’s Heineken Champions Cup. The Chiefs currently sit bottom of Pool Two after the opening three games, and are a substantial eight points adrift of leaders Munster at the halfway stage.
However there are still 15 points to play for and Armand is not giving up hope just yet after pointing to the history books. Armand made reference to January 2016 when the Chiefs booked a quarter-final place with a famous victory over Ospreys at Sandy Park, and is hoping for the same.
“We’ve got through on less odds in the past,” said the back-row forward. “There is no point going into next week at Gloucester and thinking we are out and have nothing to play for. There is a lot for us to play for! “The story of us getting 15 points and making it through is a fantastic one to try and achieve. Yes, we’ve got our backs against the wall, but let’s see how we react.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
