Having been given his first taste of Aviva Premiership action at the weekend, Exeter Chiefs youngster Henry Slade says he is keen to sample more over the remaining few weeks of the season. The talented fly-half was handed his top flight debut when he came off the bench during the second half of Exeter's 27-6 home win over London Irish. It was indeed a special moment for the 20-year-old, who with his first Premiership touch came within a whisker of marking his big day with a first-ever try. Sadly, it was not to be for Slade as referee Martin Fox adjudged his charge for the line had been...

Hooker Chris Whitehead believes having sampled the delights of the Heineken Cup this season, Exeter Chiefs are desperate to make sure they are lining up alongside Europe's elite clubs again next season. With just three league games remaining for the Devon outfit, the race to be amongst the top six in this season's Aviva Premiership is hotting up nicely. The Chiefs - alongside Gloucester, Bath and London Wasps - occupy the four next-best berths outside of the play-off zone and Whitehead says the challenge over the final weeks of another highly competitive campaign is to ensure nothing is...

Dave Ewers believes the final three games of this season’s Aviva Premiership represent a “massive challenge” to the Exeter Chiefs as they look to seal a place amongst the division’s top six sides. With important clashes against London Irish (home), London Wasps (away) and Gloucester (home) remaining for the Devon club, Ewers knows the battle for Heineken Cup qualification next season is set to go to right to the wire. However, buoyed by Saturday’s late 24-18 victory over Worcester Warriors at Sixways, Rob Baxter’s side have certainly positioned themselves nicely for the top flight’s final...

With just two minutes remaining, the Aussie international found his way over from close range to seal a vital four points for Baxter’s men and condemn their opponents to another late defeat.

Although the Chiefs – who scored...

With just two minutes remaining on Saturday, Mumm picked the perfect moment to claim his...

Long-serving No.8 Richard Baxter believes that Exeter Chiefs are still learning in the Aviva Premiership and that is key to their future in the top flight.

Baxter, who captained the Devon club in their narrow defeat to Leicester Tigers at the weekend, is taking all the positives out of the performance at Sandy Park – whilst at the same time focusing his attentions firmly on Saturday’s trip up the M5 to rivals Worcester Warriors (3pm)

“Full credit to Leicester, they were able to grind out the result better than we did,” said Baxter afterwards. “At the moment we’re striving...

Returning prop Brett Sturgess still believes that Exeter Chiefs’ Heineken Cup dream is still alive despite their narrow defeat against Leicester Tigers at the weekend.

The boot of England international Toby Flood kicked the Tigers to a narrow 12-9 victory at a packed Sandy Park, but Kettering-born Sturgess insists the mood within the camp remains buoyant despite the latest reverse.

The Chiefs currently lie in eighth place in the Aviva Premiership standings, but are just five points adrift of the crucial sixth spot which brings about qualification for next season’s Heineken...

The Exeter Chiefs squad maybe taking a few well-earned days off following back-to-back wins over London Welsh and Harlequins, but Gareth Steenson insists it will be back to business again next week.

The Irishman produced a stellar showing in Saturday's 27-16 away win at reigning Aviva Premiership champions Harlequins, landing 17 points with the boot, as well as playing his part in Exeter's two tries scored by Damian Welch and Luke Arscott.

It was a victory that not only saw the Devon club claim a league double over the Londoners, but put the Chiefs firmly back in the mix...

There is still time to vote for Exeter Chiefs supporters to register their support for Jack Nowell to win this season’s LV= Breakthrough Player Award.

The talented Cornishman is one of 10 players who are currently battling it out to win the accolade following some notable displays in this season’s competition.

Equally at home at full-back or on the wing, 19-year-old Nowell has constantly been a blight on opposition defences this season and was regarded as the top player in round four as his side saw off a strong Northampton Saints.
