Video - Tom O'Flaherty scores from an incredible volley

Exeter Chiefs stormed to another bonus-point victory in round two of the Premiership as they trashed Bath 40-3 at Sandy Park on Saturday.

Rob Baxter's men kicked off their title defence with an impressive win in the capital against Harlequins and Baxter stuck largely with the same cast they had produced the perfect performance at The Stoop.

Six tries, five of which were converted, were the highlights of another polished performance from the defending champions. No.8 Sam Simmonds bagged a brace - taking his seasonal tally to five in two games - whilst there were further touchdowns for Tom O’Flaherty, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne and Ian Whitten.

Sam Simmonds scored the first try in the 11th minute before touching down again on the half-hour mark as Exeter led 14-3. Shortly after Sam Simmond's score, winger Tom O'Flaherty came up with a moment of absolute brilliance. Joe Simmonds sent a cross-kick in O'Flaherty's direction with the winger volleying the ball on the fly before winning the race to score.

Joe Simmonds converted to make it 21-3 at the break. 

A penalty try and tries from Sam Hidalgo-Clyne and Ian Whitten saw Exeter to a comfortable 40-3 win.
