    Danny Ciprianis Wasps return ended in victorious fashion at the Ricoh Arena after Exeter lost a healthy lead to suffer a 25-20 opening weekend defeat. Curtis Samuel Jersey .England international fly-half Cipriani, who made his first Premiership appearance for Wasps since May 2010 after rejoining them from Sale Sharks, had a solid, rather than spectacular afternoon, as Wasps fought back from 12 points adrift early in the second period.Centre Jimmy Gopperth, scrum-half Dan Robson and hooker Tommy Taylor all scored tries for Wasps, while Gopperth added two conversions and two penalties for a 15-point haul to thwart the Chiefs -- last seasons Aviva Premiership runners-up.Exeter bossed the opening 50 minutes, taking charge through touchdowns from number eight Thomas Waldrom and scrum-half Will Chudley, with fly-half Henry Slade kicking 10 points, but they were undone by Wasps strong final quarter display.Cipriani and his former Sale teammate Taylor both started following their summer moves, with two more Wasps newcomers -- prop Marty Moore and lock Matt Symons -- on bench duty. Exeter boss Rob Baxter handed a debut to former Bath centre Ollie Devoto, who partnered Sam Hill in midfield.And it took the Chiefs just four minutes to open their account, as they delivered a trademark try from a driven lineout for Waldrom, who scored three tries when Exeter crushed Wasps 41-27 on their last Premiership visit to Coventry nine months ago.Slade added the conversion, but Cipriani showed some promising early touches for Wasps, almost creating an opportunity for wing Christian Wade following a clever kick into space, before a Slade penalty took Exeter 10 points clear.Wasps could not establish any consistent foothold inside Exeters 22, and the Chiefs went close to extending their advantage through an impressive Olly Woodburn break, but he could not get the final pass away that would undoubtedly have created a try.The home side, though, moved up a gear as half-time approached after Gopperth had opened their account with a penalty.Devoto rightly avoided any punishment from referee Tom Foley after his boot accidentally went close to Ciprianis head in a ruck, and Wasps then conjured a superb score when livewire number nine Robson capitalised on flanker Guy Thompsons midfield surge to send Gopperth sprinting over in the corner.But Exeter fought back immediately, ending the opening 40 minutes by reasserting control as Chudley and Hill linked impressively before Chudley skipped outside Wasps last defender and claimed a try that Slade converted for a 17-8 interval advantage.Another Slade penalty put Exeter 12 points ahead, yet Wasps replied in style through some slick handling that freed Wade from just inside his own half, and he found Robson on a supporting inside run, with the scrum-half enjoying a 30-metre unopposed run to the line.Gopperths conversion narrowed the gap to 20-15, and Wasps impressive momentum saw them score another try 14 minutes from time, on this occasion after their forwards blasted open Exeters defence and Taylor touched down following an impressive show of power.Another Gopperth conversion put Wasps ahead for the first time, before Slade sent an angled penalty chance narrowly wide with eight minutes left, and that proved to be Exeters last scoring chance as Gopperth sealed the deal through a long-range penalty. Star Lotulelei Jersey . The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries. Captain Munnerlyn Jersey . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. . Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. WASHINGTON -- The New York Mets starting rotation remains fluid with 18 games remaining in the regular season. But it doesnt appear as though Rafael Montero will be part of it moving forward.He struggled with command for the third straight outing as the Washington Nationals beat the Mets 8-1 on Monday night in the opener of a three-game series.Montero walked three Nationals in the first inning, including Bryce Harper and Wilson Ramos with the bases loaded. He lasted 1 2/3 innings for the shortest of his 12 career big league starts, allowing five hits and six runs with four walks and two strikeouts.Manager Terry Collins was not sure who would start the next time Monteros turn comes up, but he ruled out giving the right-hander another opportunity.Its pretty frustrating, because he does have good stuff, Collins said. You can see when hes actually throwing strikes, theres not a lot of good swings. But he gets himself in trouble because he gets behind in counts.Over his last three starts, Montero has allowed 14 walks in 11 innings.It doesnt matter where they put me, Montero said. I just have to continue doing my job. I think what I tried to do is just get ahead of hitters, but unfortunately sometimes things dont work out.Collins did not rule out the possibility of Jacob deGrom taking Monteros spot in the rotation, although deGrom may need more time to recover from forearm soreness that has kept him out since Sept.1. He threw a 35-pitch bullpen session at Nationals Park Monday afternoon.Anybody could be in the mix for that spot, Collins said.Mat Latos threw 4 1/3 innings in his first start with the Nationals allowing three hits and one run with three walks and four strikeouts. His first start with the Nationals was cut short due to hamstring tightness. Reynanldo Lopez (3-3) combined with three relievers for 4 2/3 scoreless innings.Montero struggled early Monday walking three Nationals in the first inning, including Bryce Harper and Wilson Ramos with the bases loaded.Nationals pitcher Mat Latos led off the second with a solo homer over the left field fence, before Daniel Murphy doubled and Harper was intentionally walked. The move backfired as Rendon then delivered his 18th homer of the season to put the Nationals ahead 6-1. Kawann Short Jersey. It was the 60th and final pitch of Monteros outing.Jose Reyes hit a leadoff double in the first and later scored on a Yoenis Cespedes RBI sac fly to give New York a short-lived 1-0 lead.Ramos and Ryan Zimmerman added RBI singles for Washington off Mets reliever Gabriel Ynoa.With the win, the Nationals increased their lead in the National League East to 10 games -- their largest cushion of the season- and reduced their magic number to nine to clinch their third division title in five years.BACKMAN NOT RETURNING:Former Mets infielder Wally Backman will not return as the organizations Triple-A manager in 2017. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters that Backman has decided to move on, after working in New Yorks minor league system since 2010. Backman spent the last four seasons as manager of the Las Vegas 51s.TRAINERS ROOMMets: Infielder Wilmer Flores missed his second straight game with a stiff neck. Manager Terry Collins said that Flores tried to hit Monday afternoon but his neck remained sore. Flores was injured Saturday after a home plate collision with Atlanta Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski.Nationals: Manager Dusty Baker is optimistic that RHP Joe Ross (shoulder inflammation) will soon be reinstated from the 60-day disabled list. Ross, who last pitched for the Nationals on July 2, threw a simulated game Saturday after making two rehab starts with Triple-A Syracuse.UP NEXTMets: RHP Noah Syndergaard (13-8) looks to snap a personal three-game losing streak against the Nationals as he makes his fifth start of the season against the NL East leaders. Syndergaard threw seven innings and allowed two runs on three hits in a 4-1 loss to Washington Sept.2 at Citi Field.Nationals: RHP A.J. Cole (1-1) will make his fifth start of the season Tuesday and his second against the Mets. Coles best outing came Sept.2 in New York when he allowed one run and three hits over six innings for his first career Major League win.
