Exeter Chiefs coach Ricky Pellow said his side could be proud of their efforts after they recorded a notable 62-25 victory over Cardiff Blues in the Anglo-Welsh Cup.
The Chiefs bounced back from their opening round loss at Harlequins to swot aside the visiting Welsh region with a ten-try success at Sandy Park.
“I think the guys need to be immensely proud of what they have achieved as a group,” Pellow told the Exeter Chiefs website.
“To come out and put the scoreline we did on a young Cardiff side was really pleasing. We talked in the week about showing what it means to be a Chief and to a man every one of the guys showed that.”
The coach was happy that his team could come back from being behind their opponets earlier on.
“Perhaps early on we were guilty of trying to play too much and didn’t expect Cardiff to come flying up like they did. The pleasing thing for me was that we didn’t let it affect us, instead we parked it, moved on, and then as the game went on we got stronger and stronger.”
