DELIGHTED boss Alan Solomons has urged his players to savour the moment after Worcester Warriors claimed a memorable 6-5 triumph at defending champions Exeter Chiefs.

However, he insisted there was still “a long way to go” in the Aviva Premiership as second-from-bottom Worcester bid to beat the drop.

Two Chris Pennell penalties proved to be enough for Warriors as they defended heroically at a stunned Sandy Park.

Mitch Lees went over for the league leaders, but Worcester held firm to secure their first win at Exeter since 2004.

“The players are over the moon and so they should be,” Solomons said.

“I have said to them that they must enjoy the moment as these are moments in your life that you can look back on.

“You create memories for yourself and this one will stand out, so they must enjoy it.

“We know we have got a massive game next weekend and we will review this match.

“But the players need to relax and enjoy this and then we will start again.”

Warriors also moved 12 points clear of relegation rivals London Irish who lost 13-9 to Sale Sharks.

But Solomons refused to get ahead of himself as Worcester face in-form Gloucester at Sixways next Saturday (3pm) before visiting Irish on Sunday, February 25.

“There is a long way to go and it’s not over until it is over,” Solomons said.

“(The win over Exeter) was a huge boost to our confidence.

“It shows what we are capable of but we know we have very tough matches ahead of us and we know we need to take one match at a time.

“The rugby department will be off for a week at the end of this period because we know how attritional rugby is. That was a hard game out there.

“We know the month of February is a big one for us. We will enjoy the moment and then our focus will be on Gloucester.

“It is going to be a tough game next Saturday, we know that and we will prepare as best we can for that game so we can give our best possible performance for our fans.”
