New Exeter Chiefs winger Tom James was overjoyed to notch up his first tries for his new club in the victory over London Wasps.
James moved to the Devon club after seven years with Cardiff Blues, during which he won ten caps for Wales.
Now settled in with his new side, James was delighted to score on his home debut as Exeter bounced back from a concerning 38-11 defeat to Northampton Saints on the opening weekend.
"I was looking at the big screen to see if [Wasps' England wing] Christian Wade was behind me, because I broke the line and the full-back was out wide, I could see on the screen that there was no one coming, so that helped,"James told the Western Morning News.
"It was a bit further out than the first one but again the forwards had run round the corner and made a bit of space. I stepped and I could see the try line, so it was a case of head back and go for it.
"For the first one, I saw one of the defenders over-chasing, so I stepped and I was lucky enough to score. You have a go for it and make sure you score, or you have to give the ball. Luckily, I made sure I scored.
"It was great to score on my home debut, in front of the fans, and we needed a big performance after last week [the 38-11 defeat at Northampton Saints]. I thought the forwards fronted up and I was fortunate enough to be on the end to score two tries."
Despite their victory the Chiefs were driven close by Wasps in the second half as the visitors fought back, with James admitting the Exeter pack bailed out the side as they continued to try and make new combinations click.
"Maybe if we'd scored some more points [after his second try] we'd have been out of sight, but sadly we made a few errors and they got into our 22 and scored.
"Then the pressure was back on us. At least the forwards ground it out for us at the end.
"I think we were working so hard, sometimes you can work too hard almost, and leave a bit of space. But it's still early in the season, we're working on new things, so hopefully we'll go strong from here.
"We had to improve in defence, because some of the tries we conceded against Northampton were from our own mistakes. This week I think the forwards really fronted up and the backs were able to run straight into space."
