Exeter Chiefs' Chris Budgens has dedicated his try against Worcester Warriors yesterday to his twin sons, who recently died after being born prematurely.

The 39-year-old was brought on as a late substitute in yesterday's match.

After the match, Budgen told Sky Sports News: "That was for the boys. I told my wife [Tina] and my son [Dylan] that I would try and do something today.

"We had the boys' funerals on Thursday and the one promise I made was that I would try and score for them, so when I got that ball today there was no way I was going to stop."

The New Zealander scored the Chiefs' third try in their 33-9 win over the Warriors.
