Chiefs clinically executed try

Exeter Chiefs went back to top of the table briefly at the weekend, beating Newcastle by 32 points to 24.

They have since been replaced at the top by Saracens but remain just a point behind, a strong position going into the European break.

The highlight of the fixture was not a breathtaking moment of magic or a piece of individual flare, more a moment of technical brilliance.

A combination of White, Simmonds & Turner, produced an exceptionally well crafted premeditated move straight from the Rob Baxter’s playbook.

Going straight to a maul from the lineout, White feeds the ball left to Simmonds, getting it straight back and using Turner, exploiting the gap where the lineout had been.

Rugby is often oversimplified to being a game of brute force when it is also calculated and methodical like a game of chess.

A very violent game of chess.
