Exeter 13-34 Saracens: Champs too good for Chiefs

  • Saracens recorded a 34-13 bonus-point win against Exeter
  • The victory was the Premiership champions second successive win at Sandy Park
  • The Londoners top the early-season standings with 10 points
Saracens put in a complete performance against Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park on Sunday, running out 34-13 winners in the Premiership.

Alex Lozowski raced Saracens into an early lead with a fourth-minute try, with Sean Maitland grabbing the second of the afternoon and his first for the club.

Henry Slade slotted two penalties through either side of a Richard Wigglesworth yellow card, as Chiefs worked their way back into the game.

Maitland went over again following the break, with Jackson Wray sealing the bonus point.

Luke Cowan-Dickie gave the hosts hope with a try late in the second-half, but Ben Spencer went over at the death for a 34-13 win.
