Exeter top after Tigers defeat

Exeter made it third time lucky against Leicester as they outscored the visitors by five tries to two to go top of Pool Four with a 35-10 victory in the LV= Cup at Sandy Park.

The home side had narrowly lost their two Premiership meetings against the Tigers but they had this game sewn-up by half time having scored four converted tries - through Chad Slade, Dave Ewers, Neil Clark and Haydn Thomas - without reply to secure the a bonus point.

Tigers' Dan Hipkiss and Boris Stankovich both crossed over after the break, either side of Ben Moon's effort, but could not mount a fight back.
