Whitehead's World: Time for underdogs to bite back

The Exeter Chiefs hooker looks back in anger - and forward in hope - in his latest column...

I ended last week’s column saying “until next time”. I can’t believe it’s been a week: it seems like only five minutes has passed until “next time” has arrived. So this week’s post is brought to you courtesy of inspiration - but probably most of all frustration.

What a fantastic adventure and experience to go over and play the four-time Heineken Cup champions in their own backyard and come away with a losing bonus point.
