EIGHT tries conceded, three yellow cards and injuries to Chris Pennell, Wynand Olivier, Tom Heathcote, skipper Gerrit-Jan van Velze and Gareth Milasinovich.

Worcester Warriors’ club-record four-match Aviva Premiership winning run came to a shuddering halt with their heaviest defeat of the season on a brutal afternoon at Sandy Park.

Rookie prop Milasinovich could be sidelined for some time after being carried off on a stretcher after hurting his ankle when a scrum collapsed in the dying minutes.

And South African centre Olivier could also miss the remainder of the season after damaging his hamstring during a rare second-half raid by the visitors.

Warriors are now guaranteed top-flight rugby after London Irish lost to Sale Sharks but this hiding by Exeter Chiefs serves as a reminder of how clinical the best sides in the Premiership are.

Clearly, Warriors have gained confidence after five wins from seven matches but they are still some distance behind free-flowing Exeter, who were outstanding.

England wing Jack Nowell caused problems for Worcester’s midfield and powerhouse number eight Thomas Waldrom grabbed a hat-trick of close-range tries.

Wing Olly Woodburn also scored three tries for Exeter, who showed no mercy against a depleted Warriors with Francois Hougaard finishing the game at full-back.

Warriors badly missed prop Nick Schonert in the scrum and tough-tackling flanker Phil Dowson, while Ryan Mills’ late withdrawal was a surprise.

Prop James Johnston had a tough afternoon in the scrum on his first start for Warriors and was the first visiting player dispatched to the sin-bin.

But Mills’ replacement Andy Symons made an impact.

Symons was strong in midfield and barged his way over for Warriors’ second try to show why he will be missed at Sixways next season.

Playing against the wind, Exeter bossed the scrum and swept into a 17-0 lead while Johnston was off the field.

Waldrom and James Short touched down for Chiefs before Woodburn finished off a spectacular break and kick ahead by Nowell, with Gareth Steenson adding a conversion.

Warriors hit back through Cooper Vuna’s impressive finish after a quick penalty from Hougaard before Symons barged over and Heathcote added the conversion.

Chiefs led 17-12 at the interval but extended their lead with a try from Ollie Atkins within a minute of the restart with Steenson converting.

Hooker Jaba Bregvadze was sin-binned almost immediately after replacing Niall Annett and Waldrom’s second try on the hour mark stretched the hosts’ lead to 29-12.

With Warriors struggling to cope with the intensity, Woodburn picked up a loose ball from Bryce Heem to punch through a hole left by the injured Olivier and Henry Slade added the conversion.

Warriors could not escape their own half and Waldrom crashed over from close-range, with Slade converting, to complete his hat-trick.

Carl Kirwan was Warriors’ third player sin-binned as the pressure continued to mount.

After a long stoppage for Milasinovich’s injury, Exeter rubbed sale into Worcester’s wounds when Woodburn ran through to complete his hat-trick after a loose kick from Ryan Lamb.

Slade’s conversion took rampant Exeter to the 50-point mark and left Warriors without a Premiership win against Chiefs in eight attempts.
