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.
