LONDON Welsh done a misfortune probable start to life behind in a Premiership with a degrading seven-try better during a Kassam Stadium.
The Exiles would have been happy adequate to horde Exeter Chiefs in their top-flight opener, though were handed a doctrine they will need to learn fast if they are to equivocate a repeat of their relegation dual seasons ago.
And with a throng of only 2,776, Welsh flopped off a margin too.
Two tries from former England No 8 Thomas Waldrom, who did a same for Leicester opposite Welsh in 2012, got Exeter going in a initial half and they proceeded to cut by some increasingly diseased home defence.
It could have been even worse as Chiefs had deputy Kai Horstmann’s bid ruled out by a Television Match Official (TMO).
Former All Blacks scrum half Piri Weepu done his entrance on his 31st birthday, combining a high-profile half-back partnership with ex-England general Olly Barkley.
But both had still games and a hosts had small to celebrate.
Welsh started good and went tighten after 8 mins when flanker Pete Browne could not utterly reason a scoring pass on a left.
Exeter, however, struck from their initial poignant conflict on 11 mins as Waldrom upheld good and powered over from tighten range.
Fly half Gareth Steenson converted and Exeter had a breeze in their sails.
Scrum half Haydn Thomas roughly sniped by for a second try, though Chiefs were penalised for crossing.
Browne got a home fans going with a absolute mangle from midfield before full behind Seb Jewell was stopped on a right wing.
Waldrom disfigured over for his second on 26 minutes, awarded after arbitrate Dean Richards went to a TMO, Steenson again converting.
Welsh twice had a possibility to get on a board, though Barkley missed dual really makeable penalties.
Exeter centre Henry Slade afterwards showed him how to do it with a flog from halfway, creation it 17-0.
The visitors tranquil a rest of a half, though it was their ability to make vigour in a 22 count that saw them good forward during a break.
Welsh’s initial conflict of a second half saw them remove a line-out.
They were afterwards warned when Exeter full behind Chrysander Botha went tighten and conceded a third try when flanker Dave Ewers was authorised an easy close-range finish. Steenson converted for 24-0.
Welsh had hardly time to solid themselves before Chiefs centre Sam Hill was cantering by a immobile home counterclaim for try No 4, again converted by Steenson.
Wing Seb Stegmann was stopped only brief for a hosts, though they afterwards messed adult a five-metre line-out and a possibility was lost.
Just when we suspicion Welsh would play for pride, they became even looser in a final quarter.
Right wing Ian Whitten popped adult on a left for try No 5 before deputy Jack Arnott bagged a breakaway effort.
Steenson finished a 100 per cent afternoon with both conversions.
Horstmann was denied by a video replay when some mediocre counterclaim would have stopped him good short.
However, Botha, who had looked sharp-witted via wrapped it adult with a excellent solo try, converted by Slade.
There was still time for Welsh deputy column Pablo Henn and Exeter flanker Ben White to be sin-binned, though there was not even a satisfaction try for a hosts.
