Exeter edge Sixways thriller

Exeter produced an astonishing finish to record a remarkable 31-26 win over Worcester in a thrilling Aviva Premiership game at Sixways.

With less than two minutes of the game remaining they trailed 26-19 before tries from Phil Dollman and Sireli Naqelevuki and a conversion from Gareth Steenson broke the Warriors' hearts.

Graig Gillies and Miles Benjamin touched down for Worcester, with Andy Goode kicking the rest of their points.

Exeter also overcame the loss of two players to the sin-bin in the second half, with wing Gonzalo Camacho fortunate to escape with a yellow card for a tip tackle.
