Watch: Ollie Devoto and Santiago Cordero combine with incredulous 'football skills'

Exeter Chiefs midfielder Ollie Devoto has pulled off an incredulous piece of finishing, putting ‘football skills’ to great use to chip the ball into his lap following a last-ditch offload from Santiago Cordero.

Exeter scored the first try of the match following a Sale turnover, a deft cross-field kick found it’s way into the path of a flying Cordero who had to fling the ball back in-field as he was dragged into touch. Devoto on the inside then finished the job with his footwork and tight-rope finish.

The Chiefs built a 15-0 halftime lead but Sale fought back with Sam James going over from close range from a flat pass from Faf de Klerk.

Sean Lonsdale’s try represented the only points the Chiefs managed after the break, to stretch the lead to 20-7 before a long-range try to Sale replacement Will Cliff closed the gap to 20-14 after some smart hands from Rohan Janse van Rensburg in the lead-up.

Exeter held on to triumph 20-14 and record a 12th win in 15 league outings this season while Sale dropped to eighth on the ladder with their seventh loss of the season.
