HERO IGNACIO FOCUSES ON WORCESTER

exeter chiefs rugby logoMatch winner Ignacio Mieres believes Exeter Chiefs can use Friday’s sensational 30-23 comeback win at Sale as a springboard for success against Saturday’s Aviva Premiership visitors Worcester (1500, Sandy Park).

Chiefs produced an incredible top flight turnaround to triumph after trailing 23-7 at half-time at Edgeley Park.

Mieres was the hero for Rob Baxter's side as he intercepted a pass from Sale newcomer Tasesa Lavea to sprint to his first try for Exeter with just 40 seconds of the match remaining.

The Argentine ace - a second half replacement for Gareth Steenson - bagged 15 points as the Chiefs claimed only their second away victory of the campaign.

Mieres' winning try ended Chiefs’ four-game losing streak in the Premiership.

The 24-year-old admitted: "We needed to get back winning again. Recently we've had a little bit of bad luck and small mistakes have ended up costing us matches. This game, though, we ended up doing things better and we had a bit more luck. For us it was a very important win and puts us in a good position in the table.

"Saturday against Worcester is a massive game again. It's going to be a tough game and we know they will come with everything they have got. However, if we can play well and work as hard as we did against Sale, then we will give ourselves a great chance of getting the points."
