Exeter Chiefs have closed the gap on the top of the log with a bonus point win over London Irish on Saturday at Sandy Park.
The Chiefs were too good for London Irish in that first half and raced to good lead with tries from Sam Simmonds and Dan Ewers.
With a third try from Cuthbert after halftime they extended their lead before Motu Matu’u got a red card for a head high tackle. Simmonds got the Chiefs bonus point try late in the game to give them full points in the game.
