Exeter, doughty performers throughout their first season at the elite end of the English club game, will be playing Premiership rugby again next season. This should have been a matter of record some time ago – the Devonians have, after all, been winning regularly, which is more than can be said for any of the three northern sides in the top flight – but a mix-up over foreign player registration left them vulnerable to the whims and fancies of Twickenham's disciplinary class. They were duly punished yesterday, but nowhere near heavily enough to threaten their current status.

Exeter, undeniably the success story of this Premiership campaign despite hitting a large brick wall over the last three weeks, should be safe from relegation by now. All things being equal, they cannot be overtaken by Leeds, even in the unlikely event of the Yorkshiremen winning each of their remaining matches with attacking bonus points. But things may not stay equal for long, thanks to an alarming oversight on the paperwork front that could see some of the Devonians' hard-earned rewards taken away from them.
