EXETER Chiefs won 23-13 at Newcastle Falcons yesterday to finish eighth in the Premiership table.

Tries came from Luke Cowan-Dickie, Ben White and Lesley Vainikolo while Henry Slade added a conversion and two penalties.

For Exeter, it has been a season of progress as a comfortable mid-table finish came alongside winning their first piece of silverware thanks to March's LV= Cup final victory over Northampton.
