Steeno kicks of his testimonial in the company of rugby royalty!

Rugby royalty helped Gareth Steenson kick off his testimonial year last night.

Among the stars of the sport joining him for the launch were David Flatman, Richard Hill, Danny Grewcock and Mike Tindall.

Former Chiefs players at the Sandy Park event were Chris Budgen, Tommy Hayes and Bryan Rennie.

And England legend Jonny Wilkinson, who couldn’t be there on the night, sent a special video message.

Steeno said he was humbled by the turn out and the tributes he received.

The fans’ favourite is celebrating 10 years as an Exeter Chief and as part of his celebratory year is staging a game featuring an Exeter select side who will take on a Classic Lions this afternoon (SATURDAY AUGUST 12).

Tickets are available at the ground TODAY. Kick off is 2pm.
