Chiefs side to face Bath

It’s a result that still irks one or two at Sandy Park, but it was to prove a pivotal moment in Exeter’s title-winning campaign last season.

Having controlled large parts of their home encounter with Bath last October, the Chiefs were subsequently floored by a crafty sucker punch from their Westcountry rivals, when Fijian flyer Semesa Rokoduguni strolled over for a winning try deep into added on time.

It was a bitter pill to swallow for Rob Baxter’s side in the immediate aftermath. However, it would be the last time he and his side would taste defeat on home soil in the...

On Monday 27th November, Premiership Rugby star and Ex QE Student, Jack Yeandle came back to Queen Elizabeth’s School in Crediton to deliver a Rugby Masterclass.

As part of QE’s afterschool Rugby Club, Jack led the session with QE’s Rugby stars of the future. Jack also reminisced about the start of his Rugby playing career representing QE. Students found it fascinating to hear him speak of the last game that he played for the school, on the Barnfield pitch against Torrington school, as a Full back rather than his current position as a hooker!
