@Stumpy "They sell out their stadium every week " that is a bit of a strech, in fact as an average for last season they only managed 77.46% attendance. Impressive but bear in mind some other premiership clubs figures: Bath 96.77%, Glaws 82.39%, Quins 84.49%, Tigers 84.82%, Northampton 97.46% and Wuss 84.88%
Sandy Park is small compared with most grounds (10,744) and I do fear that Sandy Park would struggle to sell out if the ground capacity is increased. I agree they have massive potential but not a massive casual fanbase yet, and as a chiefs fan myself I hate to admit that.

I firmly believe Exeter are the minnow club with the most potential. They sell out their stadium every week and would easily sell out again with stadium expansion. They have a world class coach in Rob Baxter, and their underdog story has attracted stars such as Dean Mumm.
