What a touch.
Exeter Chiefs were made to fight yesterday afternoon in a narrow 20-14 win over Sale Sharks at Sandy Park to keep them in control of a home Premiership semi-final spot.
The Chiefs looked set for a comfortable win when first-half tries by Ollie Devoto and Don Armand helped to put them 15-0 up at the break. But two tries in the final quarter from Sam James and Will Cliff made things pretty tough for Rob Baxter’s side in the end. It was only replacement flanker Sean Lonsdale’s try sandwiched in between which earned a Chiefs victory.
The win was their 12th in 15 Premiership games this season and puts them in pretty good shape as we enter the final stages of the season. And what about Devoto’s try?
Brilliant work from Cordero but that first touch to make the ball sit up into his hands was something else. Most people would struggle to do this with a football, never mind a rugby ball.
