Adam Thompstone scored a superb hat-trick for Leicester

Winger Adam Thompstone scored a hat-trick on his first start as Leicester bounced back from last week's home defeat to Harlequins with a superb 30-8 victory over Exeter at Welford Road.

Thompstone, signed from London Irish in the summer, scored one in the first half and two in the second, with England fly-half Toby Flood kicking 15 points in a fine all-round performance.

Fly-half Ignacio Mieres kicked an early penalty for Exeter, while Ben White scored a last-minute consolation try.
