London Wasps 24 - Exeter Chiefs 37

On the day when 35,000 runners took to the streets of London for the annual marathon, Exeter Chiefs showed little sign of fatigue as they produced arguably their best display of the season to keep alive their hopes of Heineken Cup rugby again next season.

While hosts London Wasps withered in the heat of a pulsating battle, Rob Baxter’s men duly rose to the occasion claiming maximum reward from an oustanding display at Adams Park. Tries from Jack Yeandle, Jack Nowell, Damian Welch and Haydn Thomas, together with 17 points from the boot of...

Having been given his first taste of Aviva Premiership action at the weekend, Exeter Chiefs youngster Henry Slade says he is keen to sample more over the remaining few weeks of the season. The talented fly-half was handed his top flight debut when he came off the bench during the second half of Exeter's 27-6 home win over London Irish. It was indeed a special moment for the 20-year-old, who with his first Premiership touch came within a whisker of marking his big day with a first-ever try. Sadly, it was not to be for Slade as referee Martin Fox adjudged his charge for the line had been...

Hooker Chris Whitehead believes having sampled the delights of the Heineken Cup this season, Exeter Chiefs are desperate to make sure they are lining up alongside Europe's elite clubs again next season. With just three league games remaining for the Devon outfit, the race to be amongst the top six in this season's Aviva Premiership is hotting up nicely. The Chiefs - alongside Gloucester, Bath and London Wasps - occupy the four next-best berths outside of the play-off zone and Whitehead says the challenge over the final weeks of another highly competitive campaign is to ensure nothing is...

Dave Ewers believes the final three games of this season’s Aviva Premiership represent a “massive challenge” to the Exeter Chiefs as they look to seal a place amongst the division’s top six sides. With important clashes against London Irish (home), London Wasps (away) and Gloucester (home) remaining for the Devon club, Ewers knows the battle for Heineken Cup qualification next season is set to go to right to the wire.

With just two minutes remaining, the Aussie international found his way over from close range to seal a vital four points for Baxter’s men and condemn their opponents to another late defeat.

Although the Chiefs – who scored...
