The winger marked his first Exeter start since January with a great try
Watch: Jack Nowell’s brilliant finish against Worcester
Jack Nowell scored an incredible try as Exeter thumped Worcester 59-7 in the Gallagher Premiership.
The Chiefs wing, making his first start for the club since January, wrapped up the bonus point after half an hour with a brilliant finish in the corner.
No 8 Sam Simmonds broke down the blindside from the back of a scrum inside the Warriors 22 and fed the ball to Nowell on the wing.
The England player beat one Worcester defender, then showed his power to drive towards the corner despite the attentions of two tacklers and stretched over the line to score.
It was referred to the TMO but replays showed he was in control of the ball when he grounded it and that he wasn’t in touch.
You can watch Nowell’s incredible finish here…
Nowell’s try was one of nine scored by the Chiefs in a one-sided match against Worcester. The league leaders picked a strong team for this fixture and showed their clinical edge throughout.
On top of Nowell’s great finishing skills in the corner, two forwards scored hat-tricks for Exeter.
Second-row Jonny Hill completed his in the first half. His first came following good interplay with Dave Ewers early on and then he crossed twice in the last five minutes of that opening period. His second try was from a short-range pick-and-go while for his third he was put away out wide by Nowell.
Sam Simmonds scored two tries in the first half and added his third midway through the second period – all three coming from trademark Exeter moves. The first was from a lineout drive and the second two resulted from short-range tap-and-go penalties.
Stuart Hogg and Jacques Vermeulen also notched tries for the Chiefs while Ashley Beck crossed for the Warriors late on.
