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.

Brought in on a three-year deal, Baxter once again appears to have hauled in another prized catch with...

Jonny Gray says he's "excited" at the challenge that lies ahead after he today sealed a move to Gallagher Premiership outfit Exeter Chiefs.

The 25-year-old will head to Sandy Park at the start of next season on a two-year deal, bringing to a close a hugely successful spell with Glasgow Warriors.

The Scotland lock is Rob Baxter's first confirmed new arrival ahead of the 2020/21 season – and comes just 12 months after international team-mate Stuart Hogg agreed a similar switch from Scotstoun.

Like Hogg before him, Gray says the opportunity to test himself in a new...

Exeter Chiefs may have cranked up the gears in recent weeks, but head coach Ali Hepher says his side can ill afford to take their foot off the pedal as they rev themselves up for a crucial month ahead in the Gallagher Premiership.

Back-to-back wins over Sale Sharks in the Heineken Champions Cup not only extended the Chiefs winning streak to five games, but allowed them to move within touching distance of the knockout phases of Europe for only the second time in the club's history.

Champions Cup matters, however, have now been put on the back burner until next month and it's...

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 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...

England’s chances in the Rugby World Cup would be greatly improved if they had this chap in the line-up.

Male Western lowland gorilla Pertinax lives at Paignton Zoo in Devon. He‘s around 6 feet from head to toe – modest for a professional rugby player these days, but he weighs in at a hefty 190 kilos - and it’s pretty much all muscle. At 37 he’s a bit of a senior now, but even the All Blacks might think twice about tackling him…

Impressively, this strapping lad follows a strict vegetarian diet that features peppers, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, beetroot, kale, leeks,...
