Steenson on target in Chiefs win

Gareth Steenson contributed 15 points for Exeter

Exeter Chiefs boosted their hopes of Heineken Cup qualification by moving up to sixth in the Aviva Premiership table with a convincing 27-6 win over struggling London Irish at Sandy Park.

The hosts dominated much of the first half and were 12-3 up at the break thanks to four penalties from the boot of fly-half Gareth Steenson, with the Exiles' only reply coming through a Tom Homer penalty.

Steenson added a fifth penalty early in the second half and, although his opposite number Ian Humphreys replied with one of his own, Exeter crossed the whitewash twice through wing Matt Jess and replacement Dave Ewers, with Henry Slade converting the latter score.
