Match Report: Exeter Chiefs 28-11 Worcester Warriors

Dave Ewers crossed for a double as Exeter Chiefs made it five Gallagher Premiership Rugby wins from five with a hard-fought victory over Worcester Warriors.

Ewers – in his first start of the season – barged over twice from close range in the first half while Jack Yeandle also went over.

And while Ted Hill – Worcester’s two-try hero at Welford Road last weekend – went over on the resumption – the Chiefs finished on top.

And Harry Williams burst over for the all-important fourth try and the bonus point and the Chiefs march on.

Skipper Yeandle got things started for the Chiefs at the back of a rolling maul after Chris Pennell penalty had opened the scoring.

And then it was Ewers who took over, showing too much power to burst over from close range on two occasions with Gareth Steenson typically unerring from the tee.

And while Hill forced his way over in the second half, the Chiefs weathered the storm and came back again late on for Williams to go over and secure a ninth win in a row at Sandy Park.
