Champions Exeter go 11 unbeaten at home
CHAMPIONS Exeter extended their unbeaten home run to 11 matches with a bonus-point victory over Newcastle.
Scrum-half Nic White, full-back Lachlan Turner and the returning Sam Simmonds scored to build a 24-10 half-time lead. A penalty try confirmed Exeter’s bonus point in the second half.
Newcastle were largely chasing the game throughout and scored through Jon Welsh and Juan-Pablo Socino to stay in touch at half-time, before Alex Tait and Vereniki Goneva earned a bonus point.
