EXETER Chiefs ended their run of five straight Aviva Premiership defeats with an 18-0 victory over London Irish at Sandy Park.

The hosts led 6-0 at the break thanks to two Henry Slade penalties.

Phil Dollman then extended their lead with a try that Slade converted off an upright.

The Chiefs were reduced to 14 men when Ben White was shown a yellow card, before Ian Whitten crossed late on to seal a much-needed home victory.
