Exeter Chiefs ran in six tries to record a comfortable 40-6 victory over Worcester Warriors which the basement boys still looking for their first win of the season.

Tries from flanker Ben White and captain Dean Mumm, both converted by fly-half Gareth Steenson, in the opening 10 minutes for Exeter were answered by two penalties from fly-half Ignacio Mieres as the Chiefs went in 14-6 at the interval.

But it was one-way traffic in the second half as a second try from White plus was followed by scores from full back Phil Dollman, lock Damian Welch and replacement scrum half Haydn Thomas as the Warriors finished well beaten.

Exeter, playing in to a stiff wind in the first half at Sandy Park, were awarded a series of penalties in the opening five minutes which resulted in White crossing the whitewash - Steenson added the extras.

Warriors hit back immediately through a Mieres penalty but the Chiefs kept the scoreboard ticking over after Dollman linked up with Steenson to put second-rower Mumm away on a 40-metre run to score under the posts.

Steenson again added the conversion, while the visitors turned down a couple of opportunities to kick penalties, preferring instead to opt for touch, before the Exeter fly-half hit the posts with a penalty attempt of his own from the 22.

Pressure

The Warriors continued to press until Chiefs centre Jason Shoemark was penalised for going off his feet and Mieres slotted the ball between the upright to reduce the arrears at the break.

The Chiefs, who had lost their momentum before the interval, started the second half strongly. Scrum-half Dave Lewis spun a long pass out to Steenson who offloaded to Matt Jess, the wing cutting back inside only to be caught 10 metres out.

But the Chiefs kept pressing and, after Jonny Arr's clearance kick was charged down, White followed up to claim his second try of the game, again converted by Steenson.

Blindside flanker Tom Johnson, who had been released from the England training squad in midweek, broke from inside his own half to put Dollman away down the right touchline for the Chiefs' bonus-point try. Steenson converted from the touchline.

The Chiefs continued to dominate the play in the final 10 minutes with Kai Horstmann, playing against his former club, giving an overhead pass to lock Damian Welch in the left corner for their fifth try.

Replacement fly-half Henry Slade was unable to convert from wide, but then put Thomas away for the Chiefs sixth try under the posts before Slade added the extras.
