Exeter Chiefs' top try-scorer Sireli Naqelevuki says he is fit for Sunday's Premiership clash with Wasps.

Fijian Naqelevuki, 31, scored in both of Exeter's first two games, but missed the loss at Bath 23-19 Exeter after suffering from flu.

"I'm good to go, I started training again on Monday," Naqelevuki said.

"It was a bit frustrating that I couldn't make it but I was happy for the performance and enjoyed watching them," he added to BBC South West.

Naqelevuki scored four tries in the whole of last season but has already got two this campaign.

He says hard work off the field is the main reason for his upturn in form.

"I've just tried to improve from last season, looking at my stats and what I do on the field," he added.

And he says he could not believe that he had scored within the first minute of the Chiefs' opening match at Leicester.

"It was a bit shocking but as soon as I went in the guys started to come and congratulate me, it was a good feeling.

"I just do it for the team, I'm happy to score for them.
