Chiefs shoot down Falcons
Sunday 11 September 2011
Exeter confirmed two things for the campaign ahead in a 32-15 Aviva Premiership win at home to Newcastle yesterday – that they are not going to suffer second-season syndrome and that the Falcons are just going to suffer.
Josh Tatupu, Sireli Naqelevuki, Phil Dollman and Jason Shoemark scored tries, earning a bonus point that kept the Chiefs top of the table after their victory at Leicester on the first weekend, and Ignacio Mieres kicked 12 points. Tom Catterick and James Fitzpatrick scored tries for Newcastle and Jimmy Gopperth kicked a conversion and a penalty.
In the RaboDirect Pro12, Ulster won 25-19 away to the Italians of Aironi. Ian Whitten, Dan Tuohy and Craig Gilroy scored tries for Ulster and Ian Humphreys kicked two penalties and two conversions. Nick Williams scored a try for Aironi and Naas Olivier kicked the conversion and four penalties.
In Ireland, Connacht beat the Scarlets 13-11. Mark McCrea scored Connacht's try; Matthew Jarvis kicked the conversion and a penalty and Niall O'Connor kicked another penalty. Aaron Shingler scored a try for the Scarlets and Dan Newton kicked two penalties.
