WELSH UNION TOURNAMENT Alex Day  Nortampton LV

Two tries: Alex Day

Exeter Chiefs overcame Harlequins at Sandy Park while four-try Northampton Saints blitzed Gloucester in Saturday's LV=Cup fixtures.

Exeter Chiefs 19-5 Harlequins

14 points from the boot of veteran Welsh fly-half Ceri Sweeney paved the way for a solid Chiefs win over Harlequins at Sandy Park.

Quins struck first with just four minutes on the clock with another experience international, Paul Sackey, grabbing a try.

That proved to be the high-point for the visitors, however, as Sweeney kicked five unanswered penalties before Sireli Naqelevuki scored his side's only five-pointer.

The scorers:

For Exeter:
Try: Naqelevuki
Con: Sweeney
Pens: Sweeney 4

For Harlequins:
Try: Sackey

Northampton Saints 33-6 Gloucester Rugby

A brace of tries apiece from Ken Pisi and Alex Day helped Northampton Saints to a comfortable victory over Gloucester at Franklin's Gardens.

Pisi's double saw the hosts steam into the lead, coming as they did in the 23rd and 29th minute respectably.
