Exeter ended a run of three defeats with a convincing 33-9 victory over Worcester to remain unbeaten at Sandy Park in the Aviva Premiership this season.

Gonzalo Camacho touched down for an early try and Haydn Thomas and Chris Budgen crossed in the second half to wrap up the points, with Gareth Steenson booting 16 points. Worcester's reply came in the form of three Andy Goode penalties.

Exeter took the lead after full-back Luke Arscott put a grubber kick through and wing Camacho hacked on and won the chase for the try line.

Fly-half Steenson added the extras, before taking advantage of the wind at his back by adding three penalties to give the home side a 16-0 lead midway through the half.

The visitors conceded another penalty at the scrum and Steenson again found the target, before home centre Phil Dollman was penalised for a high tackle and Goode reduced the arrears to 19-3 at the break.

Worcester started the second period with a lot more energy but Exeter's defence stood firm for almost 10 minutes until they were penalised for hands in the ruck and Goode made it two successful kicks from two attempts.

Worcester tried to capitalise on Exeter errors to creep their way into the opposition half and the penalty count continued as Goode landed his third penalty with 10 minutes remaining.

But the Chiefs sealed the game as breaks from Arscott and Rich Baxter pressed them towards the line. Scrum-half Thomas picked up at the back of the ruck and dummied before diving over the line with Steenson adding the conversion.

With five minutes remaining, Worcester's former Cornish Pirates flanker Sam Betty was sent to the sin-bin for taking out Arscott.

Dave Ewers went close to crossing the try-line but was stopped short and his fellow replacement Chris Budgen went over, with Ignacio Mieres adding the extras.
