Rob Baxter says that Exeter Chiefs should have picked up a bonus point in their win over Worcester Warriors.

Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter has admitted that he is disappointed that his side failed to add a bonus point during their win over Worcester Warriors.

The Devon outfit maintained their unbeaten home start to the season with a 33-9 victory over the Warriors which was helped by tries from Gonzalo Camacho, Haydn Thomas and Chris Budgen.

However, a fourth try would have gifted Chiefs a bonus point and while Baxter is pleased with his team's display, he can't help but feel that Exeter should have taken five points from the game.

"It was four very valuable points but I can't help but feel that we left a point out there, not least because large parts of our game held up well and should have given us a foundation to push on a little earlier than we did," said Baxter.

"The enthusiasm of the players to defend was far better than last week at Bath. Our toughness on the game line in the first half was better than last week and our maul defence was fantastic.

"You have to give Worcester credit, they are a good dogged side and they are not just going to give up on the game."

Next up for Chiefs is a trip to Aviva Premiership new boys London Welsh on Sunday.
