Exeter Chiefs booked a third straight Anglo-Welsh Cup final place and will face Leicester Tigers after a hard-earned victory against Harlequins.

First-half Lachlan Turner and Max Bodilly tries gave Chiefs the platform after both sides had scores ruled out.

Julian Salvi's pick-and-go score and Sam Simmonds' close-range try capped the win for the Chiefs who had a Turner effort chalked off by the TMO.

Charlie Walker's try at the death for Quins was a mere consolation.

Exeter's win means they will go to Twickenham Stoop next Sunday, the home of Quins, for the final against the Tigers.
