Chiefs sign Scottish star Sam Hidalgo-Clyne

Rob Baxter is set to replace one international name with another ahead of the 2020/21 season.

With Nic White’s departure back to Australia already confirmed, the Exeter Chiefs Director of Rugby has wasted little time in filling the void left by the gifted scrum-half.

Heading to Sandy Park will be Scottish international Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, who will join the Gallagher Premiership club on a two-year deal from French Top14 side, Lyon.

Energy levels across the Gallagher Premiership maybe edging into the red following a relentless 15-week block of fixtures, but Exeter Chiefs Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, wants his side to 'empty the tank' before getting the chance to refuel in the coming weeks.

Tomorrow's visit of Sale Sharks in the top-flight, coupled with next week's Premiership Rugby Cup semi-final against Harlequins, will bring to a head a relentless opening to the 2019/20 campaign for the Devonians.

Flush off a 1-0 victory over Grimsby Town, Exeter City closed the point gap on Swindon Town in the Sky Bet League table. As it stands, the Grecians are on a level with the Robins (each with 53 points), but behind on goal differential. Crucially, the Grecians have a game in hand, which could very well come in handy down the stretch as the clubs continue jostling for automatic promotion.

Nicky Law curled home the only goal of the game, but the Grecians had to ride their luck for large parts of the game as an in-form Grimsby side hit the inside of the post and forced a number of saves from Jonny Maxted and a couple of goalline clearances from Aaron Martin.

He's been taking significant chunks out of rivals across Europe ever since he arrived in Westcountry waters back in September, but Exeter's South African Shark, Jacques Vermeulen, still believes there is more to come from him as he continues to make his mark with the Chiefs.

As one of a handful of new recruits brought to Sandy Park by Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, last summer, the imposing 24-year-old forward has certainly been creating waves with his all-action displays.

There have been plenty of high profile rivalries over the years, so here are just a few of the most electric to go down in the history books.
