Stuart Hogg says he’s relishing being thrown in at the deep end ahead of his Exeter Chiefs debut against Bath in the Gallagher Premiership tomorrow night (7:45pm).

Rob Baxter will thrust the Scottish international straight into the fray for his new club at The Rec, less than two weeks after he arrived in Devon from his exertions with the national side at the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Having watched on from the sidelines as last season’s beaten Premiership finalists kicked off their season with a hard-fought win over Harlequins, the 27-year-old is one of five changes Baxter...

Rob Baxter has called for a greater focus from his Exeter Chiefs side this week, despite kicking off their Gallagher Premiership campaign with victory over Harlequins last Saturday.

Tomorrow, Devon's finest make the short trip to local rivals Bath, looking to build on what was a hard-fought triumph in their seasonal opener.

Jonny Hill's first half touchdown, combined with 17 points from the boot of fly-half Joe Simmonds, proved sufficient enough to see of the Londoners at Sandy Park. However, Director of Rugby Baxter is looking for another step up in standards from his...

Rob Baxter believes tomorrow's Premiership Rugby Cup clash with local rivals Bristol Bears at Sandy Park (3pm) offer a number of exciting challenges for his Exeter Chiefs squad.

Firstly, there is the small matter of a semi-final spot being up for grabs for his side, who currently head Pool C entering into the final round of qualification.

Secondly, local bragging rights will be very much up for grabs in this 'Derby Day' encounter and, most importantly, the game offers the players a final chance to stake their claim ahead of next week's Gallagher Premiership opener against...

Exeter Chiefs newcomer Jannes Kirsten says he can’t wait to get to grips with English rugby after completing his move to the Gallagher Premiership club.

The 25-year-old, who is equally adept at lock or in the back-row, joins on a one-year deal from South African Super Rugby side, the Blue Bulls.

Brought in to help bolster options in the back five of the scrum – particularly with Jonny Hill, Tom Price and Will Witty all currently recovering from summer surgery – the arrival of the Johannesburg-born forward is timely for Chiefs’ Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter.

Exeter Chiefs have bolstered their ranks ahead of the new season by recruiting former Harlequins forward Stan South.

The 22-year-old, who can play either at lock or in the back-row, is Rob Baxter's fourth capture of the close season, joining the likes of Stuart Hogg, Tom Price and Will Witty in making the move to Sandy Park.

South was due to join Championship outfit Coventry this season on a two-year deal following his release from Harlequins, but following injuries at the end of last season to both Price and Witty, the Chiefs have themselves swooped to recruit the...

Exeter Chiefs newcomer Stuart Hogg won't have to wait long for a reunion with former club Glasgow Warriors after the two clubs were drawn alongside one another in today's Heineken Champions Cup draw in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Picked out as one of the five Tier One sides, the Chiefs have been drawn against the Warriors, French outfit La Rochelle and Gallagher Premiership rivals Sale Sharks in a highly competitive Pool 2.

Dave Dennis hopes to be part of a bright future at Sandy Park, this after he today put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Gallagher Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs.

Brought to Devon back in the summer of 2016 from his native Australia, the former Waratahs forward has already played a significant role in helping bring success and silverware to the Chiefs.

He capped his first season in England by helping his new club to become Premiership champions for the first time in the club's history, defeating Wasps after extra-time at Twickenham. Then, last season, he was on...

Rob Baxter hopes a return to home comforts tomorrow will help provide him and his Exeter Chiefs with the perfect foundation from which to attack visiting Newcastle Falcons in the Gallagher Premiership (2:30pm).

Defeat away to Gloucester a week ago saw the Devonians surrender top spot in the division, albeit on points difference to defending champions Saracens, but Baxter believes being back on familiar surroundings can ensure normal service is resumed at the first attempt.

It's been six weeks since the Chiefs last ran out at home - that was against Castres in the Heineken...
