Exeter chiefs stars make England debuts

A trio of young Exeter Chiefs rugby stars made a first appearance for England but couldn't avoid defeat to the Barbarians.

Chiefs forward Dave Ewers forced his way over the line for the first try of the match after twelve minutes. Sam Hill joined Henry Slade in the backs and Slade just got the ball down in the second half.

He also added three penalty conversions to his personal tally. But the Barbarians, drawn from elite players around the world, won 29-39.
