Exeter Chiefs fly-half Gareth Steenson has expressed his disappointment at his side's second half performance against Sale.
The Devon side looked comfortably going into half-time, before the desperate Sharks rallied to claim only their third victory of the season in the Premiership.
"We created chances in the first half, which was great. That is what we are trying to do, but it is just our finishing (that is a problem). We didn't take our opportunities, but we always felt like things were going well," said Steenson.
"Watisoni [Votu] getting a try for us was good, but there were a couple of chances in the corner which didn't go our way, which was very disappointing, and if you take chances like that, it might be a different result.
"We are creating the chances, which are fantastic, and we are getting into the right areas of the pitch, and it has got to click at some point. We just have to be confident and stick with what we are doing, and keep working hard, and hopefully it will come.
"You saw 40 minutes of good rugby from us, and then 40 minutes of basically destructive rugby, there is no other way I can put it. It is very disappointing how we played that second half.
"We talked at half-time about doing specific things, and we went out and did the exact opposite. Credit to Sale, they came out and threw everything at us, but I think we just didn't perform in that second half."
