Chiefs side to face Castres

Rob Baxter insists the way his side finished last week’s Heineken Champions Cup opener against Munster must now be the starting point for his players ahead of tomorrow’s Round Two clash with Castres (2pm). With little to choose between the Chiefs and Munster in horrendous conditions at Sandy Park, it was the current Gallagher Premiership leaders who were pressing hard in the dying minutes. Up against a gale force wind, Baxter’s side came within a whisker of claiming all four points against the Irish province. Sadly, a knock-on in the last action of the game ended their hopes of a famous...

Domestically Exeter Chiefs have yet to put a foot wrong in terms on on-field success. Six wins from six games, 29 points out of a possible 30, it’s little wonder that Director of Rugby Rob Baxter is walking around with a smile on his face. Tomorrow, however, the Chiefs will embark on their latest European adventure, welcoming for the first time to Sandy Park, Irish visitors Munster in Round One of this season’s Heineken Champions Cup (3:15pm). A capacity crowd will be expected for this inaugural match-up between these two modern-day heavyweights, both of whom will be looking to deliver a...

Chiefs side to face Worcester Warriors

Ali Hepher insists Exeter Chiefs have been duly warned of the threat posed by visiting Worcester Warriors in tomorrow's Gallagher Premiership clash at Sandy Park (3pm). Worcester's impressive 44-37 win at Leicester Tigers last weekend certainly lifted heads across the division, not just in the fact that it elevated the Warriors off the foot of the table with their first win of the campaign, but the fact they were able to pick off their more illustrious rivals in their own lair. Now, they will head West looking to not only build on that success, but at the same time claim the scalp of the...

Exeter Chiefs must use their impressive win over Leicester Tigers last weekend as the springboard for another big performance ahead of Saturday's trip to rivals Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership (2pm).

That's the view of Chiefs lock Sam Skinner ahead of another mouth-watering fixture for him and his team-mates at the Ricoh Arena.

Skinner played a key role in helping the Devon club kick-off their new campaign on a winning note, defeating the Tigers 40-6 with a six-try success at Sandy Park.

Now, the 23-year-old will be hoping for more of the same against Dai Young's...

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has extended its long-standing sponsorship of Exeter Chiefs rugby club through the 2018/19 season.

For the ninth consecutive year, the distinctive Flybe logo again features on the back of the players’ shirts, the Exeter-based airline having been a Chiefs shirt sponsor since their first year in the top division in 2010. As a result, the logo has been prominent on the team’s shirts during all three Premiership finals, including their Championship winning season in 2017.

The familiar purple Flybe advertising board will also continue to...

Exeter Chiefs chairman Tony Rowe OBE says it's testament to the 'fantastic backing' the club receive from its loyal supporters that season ticket sales have risen again ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Ahead of what will be the Devon club's ninth year in the Gallagher Premiership, the Chiefs have recorded a 11% increase in season ticket sales compared to last season.

As well as the excitement of the upcoming top-flight season, plus another hugely impressive season last term - one which included reaching a third successive Premiership Final and also capturing the Anglo-Welsh...

Williams 'fired up' for new season

Harry Williams insists Exeter Chiefs can ill afford to dwell on the disappointment of defeat in May’s Premiership Final against Saracens.

Instead, the England international believes he and his team-mates must instead use that loss as ‘fuel to the fire’ as the Devon club look ahead to the new 2018/19 campaign.

The new season kicks-off in less than a month on September 1 against Leicester Tigers at Sandy Park and the 26-year-old is aiming to be part and parcel of Rob Baxter’s mix as they look to wrestle back their title crown from the Londoners.

“Last season has been...
