Sam Simmonds scores hat-trick to smash Premiership scoring record

Sam Simmonds smashed the Premiership try-scoring record for a season as his hat-trick helped Exeter Chiefs to a 32-12 victory at London Irish.

The British and Irish Lions number eight took less than seven minutes to equal Christian Wade and Dominic Chapman’s mark of 17 tries.

Simmonds then rounded off his tally late on with the win helping Exeter return to second place in the Premiership..

5 biggest names who AREN’T on Warren Gatland’s standby list

#1. Jonny May (England)

Reported Standby list: Jack Nowell (England), Jonny May (England), James Lowe (Ireland), Simon Zebo (Ireland), Hugo Keenan (Ireland), Leigh Halfpenny (Wales)
