Chris Budgens dedicates his try to his twin sons, who died recently after being born prematurely.

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.
