London Irish 23 Exeter 29

The visitors scored 15 unanswered points in the final quarter, including tries to Dean Mumm and Ben White, to secure a 29-23 win..
For the opening hour Irish were the better side, showing greater enterprise than a lethargic Exeter and with visitors' wing Tom James in the sin bin, the hosts appeared sure-fire winners.
Irish had already gone over through Nick Rouse and Marland Yarde in each half but they came to a standstill as 19 points from the boot of Gareth Steenson ensured Exeter sailed home.
