Ceri Sweeney: 'Exeter Chiefs will not get carried away'

Ceri Sweeney says that Exeter Chiefs will take each game one at a time as they continue to battle on three different fronts this season.

Exeter Chiefs fly-half Ceri Sweeney has urged caution from his teammates ahead of this afternoon's LV= Cup semi-final clash against Leicester Tigers.

The Chiefs head into the game sitting pretty in second place in the Aviva Premiership table, while also having recently secured their place in the final eight of the European Rugby Champions Cup.

Despite being on course to lift as many as three trophies this season, Sweeney insists that the Devon-based outfit will be firmly focusing on the task at hand.

"We are ticking along nicely, but we are not getting too far ahead of ourselves," he is quoted as saying by the Western Morning News. "I know it's a cliche, but we are only looking as far as the next game.

"We certainly have a very tough ask at Leicester, so we will take it as it comes, put a good performance in and do ourselves justice and hopefully, we can get a win for the fans as well. It's a nice place to be right now, but realistically, we could end the season with nothing.

"We are in three competitions at the moment and going well, but there are still six or seven weeks to go. Things could go wrong – hopefully it doesn't – but we could end up out of all the competitions and fifth or sixth place in the league. Rob [Baxter] and Ali [Hepher] are pushing that mentally, we have to be on the ball, keep looking to next week and keep performing."

Exeter are the current holders of the Anglo-Welsh cup having defeated Northampton Saints 15-8 to lift the silverware last year.
