Hill hopes for more after his first start
Centre Sam Hill is hoping to build on his first Premiership start when Exeter Chiefs tackle London Irish this weekend.
The 20-year-old was promoted to the starting line-up for last Saturday's 30-26 defeat of Wasps at home, having appeared off the bench the week before at Northampton Saints.
And the former Crediton youngster stands every chance of retaining his place for the trip to Reading as the Chiefs seek to notch a second win at the Madejski Stadium.
Hill was one of five Exeter players who helped England win the IRB Junior World Championship in June and set his sights on breaking into his club's first-team squad at some stage, but even he was surprised at how quickly he managed to do it.

"I really enjoyed my first game but I've got to keep moving on and getting better," said Hill. "Hopefully I may get a few more starts.
"Realistically my goal was to get on the bench for a few games this season, so to get a start was brilliant and more than I expected."
He added: "I was really excited when I was told I was starting last week, I didn't expect it at all to be honest.
"I really enjoyed it but it was very tough, the pace and intensity of the match was a very high standard. To play in front of the Sandy Park crowd was brilliant as well and the atmosphere was fantastic."
Having lost heavily at Northampton in their opening league game, the Chiefs players were determined to get the show back on the road with a win against Wasps.
Wing Tom James lit up the match with a brace of tries and James Scaysbrook notched the other as they proved too good for their visitors.
And the second team followed that up with a 69-12 success against Wasps in the A League on Monday night, when Sireli Naqelevuki returned to action.
Hill said: "We've got some momentum with the Braves winning as well.
"We've got to keep building it each week and hopefully building the momentum as we go.
"We're not going to change how we play at all, we're going to do what we do best and give it all we've got. Hopefully we can get a good performance in again this weekend and a good result."
Hill said there were a few areas of their game to work on having conceded two late tries against Wasps, but hopes they can put them right before Saturday's match.
"After the Northampton game, the main focus was just to get the win," he said. "Some parts of our game were really good but there's a lot to improve on. We need to work on that this week and improve from last week's performance."
