Chiefs side to face Sale Sharks

At the start of the season Rob Baxter made no secret of the fact that conquering Europe would be a key objective for his Exeter Chiefs side this season.

Having proved their worth for a number of years domestically in the Gallagher Premiership, the Heineken Champions Cup has proved more troublesome for the Devonians, who have made it to the knock-out stages only once in the past.

Exeter Chiefs have moved to strengthen their options at hooker by agreeing a loan move for Newcastle Falcons forward Kyle Cooper.

With club captain Jack Yeandle sidelined with a broken arm, plus fellow No.2 Jack Innard also out following shoulder surgery, Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, has wasted little time in addressing the issue by bringing in the 30-year-old South African until the end of March.

Rob Baxter believes his Exeter Chiefs owe the Sandy Park faithful a performance, given their last outing in the Gallagher Premiership against Bristol Bears ended in disappointment.

Back-to-back victories in the Heineken Champions Cup against La Rochelle and Glasgow Warriors have given the Devonians the dream start to their latest European campaign, but it’s domestic matters which take centre stage for Baxter and his squad this week.

Exeter Chiefs have bolstered their squad with the signing of Argentinian prop Enrique Pieretto until the end of the season.

Chiefs’ Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, has moved swiftly to capture the 24-year-old forward following injuries to fellow tight-heads Tomas Francis and Greg Holmes.

Francis suffered a serious shoulder injury during Wales’ Rugby World Cup semi-final against South Africa in Japan and is now likely to be sidelined for up to four months following surgery.
