Steenson on target for Chiefs

Wasps' disastrous season continued to nosedive as Exeter captain Gareth Steenson kicked 15 points to keep his side's hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the LV= Cup alive with a 30-16 success.

Playing against an out-of-form Wasps side, who were effectively out of the competition even before kick-off, the Chiefs were dominant at the scrum and showed more of a cutting edge in attack.

Exeter were also excellent in defence to restrict Wasps to just one try through Mike Powell, compared to their three touchdowns from Dave Ewers, Myles Dorrian and Ally Muldowney, thanks largely to some ferocious tackling throughout as they stayed in touch with Northampton in Pool Four.
