Exeter Chiefs 40 Worcester Warriors 6: MATCH REPORT
Exeter Chiefs returned to winning ways with an impressive performance during their 40-6 victory over Worcester Warriors at Sandy Park.
Tries from Ben White (2), Dean Mumm and Phil Dollman secured the bonus point with Damian Welch and Haydn Thomas adding to their tally later in the second half.
And that was more than enough to see Chiefs past the Warriors as they looked to make amends for the previous week’s narrow loss to Glasgow Warriors in the Heineken Cup.
The Devon club made an impressive start, scoring their first try within five minutes through flanker White.

Fly-half Gareth Steenson converted before his former team-mate Ignacio Mieres slotted a penalty for the visitors.
Chiefs were soon back on the front foot again, scoring an excellent second try completed by Mumm following some stellar work in the build-up from Dollman, Dave Lewis and Steenson – the latter then added the conversion.
And although Worcester finished the second half well, their only additional points of the first half came from a second successful penalty by Mieres.
Chiefs started the second half with renewed vigour and secured the four-try bonus point by the hour mark.
White got his second of the afternoon after charging down a box kick inside the Worcester 22 and Dollman completed another superb break in the right corner to put the outcome beyond serious doubt.
Further tries from Welch and replacement scrum-half Thomas followed as Exeter confirmed their dominance. Indeed, it took Worcester until five minutes from the end to enter the Chiefs’ 22 for the first time in the second half.
