Thanks as ever for your company, I'll be back next weekend. From me Rob Sutton, goodbye to you all.

Tough day for Gloucester, they will do well to make the playoffs now but they will still hope to finish in the top 6 and qualify for the Champions Cup.

After Saracens scored 63 points yesterday, Exeter respond with 46 today. They open up an eight point lead at the top of the table and with three rounds to go their playoff place is confirmed. One more win will get them a semi final at Sandy Park

FULL TIME: Exeter 46-10 Gloucester

79- That's nice from Gloucester, Hudson takes them up to the 22 but once again the final pass is poor, Sharples misreads it.

77- Gloucester are praying for the final whistle here, Slade ghosts through a big hole, he goes wide to Woodburn but a great cover tackle from Hudson denies Exeter going over the 50 point mark

Conversion is added by Steenson. Exeter 46-10 Gloucester (75)

TRY EXETER! Horror show for Gloucester, a horrible pass is picked off by Steenson and he glides in under the posts. 44-10

74- Game has become scrappy. 39-10

70- Another near moment for Gloucester, Billy Burns works an opening but the final pass is forward and the chance goes begging.
