Two tries in the opening two minutes from Matt Banahan and Matt Garvey set the tone for Bath in their 37-15 win over Exeter Chiefs.

Bath's 14-0 lead left Exeter with an uphill battle, with the Chiefs adding a penalty from Henry Slade, before Bath scored another ten points thanks to a converted try from scrum-half Martin Roberts and a penalty from George Ford to lead 24-3 at half-time.
