Exeter Chiefs v Cavalieri Prato try

One way traffic: Exeter hammered Cavalieri

Newcastle made it two wins from two in the Amlin Challenge Cup after they beat Petrarca 34-3 with a bonus-point at Stadio Plebiscito on Saturday.

Exeter 68-0 Cavalieri Prato

Exeter bounced back from defeat to Perpignan last week with a convincing 10-try romp.

Chiefs raced to a 34-0 lead by half-time, securing the all-important bonus before the break.

The visitors did themselves no favours as they were forced to play 20 minutes with 14 men after flanker Emanuele Leonardi and number eight Uili Kolo'ofai were both shown yellow.
