Exeter trio ink new deals

Date published: December 18 2014

Exeter have announced the re-signing of Don Armand, Will Chudley and Matt Jess, who join the growing list of players inking extensions.

The trio pledge their long-term futures to the Aviva Premiership outfit, following in the recent footsteps of Phil Dollman and Gareth Steenson.

Chudley and Jess have both agreed terms on new three-year contracts that will kick in at the culmination of this season, whilst Armand has put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Sandy Park for the next two years.

“All three are players that have shown really good form over both this season and last season,” said Baxter to the Chiefs official website.

“I think keeping a group of players together who have been playing well is probably at the core of what we have done over quite a long time. Yes, we have added players and yes, some have moved on, but our playing group has generally remained steady and relatively together.

“That allows you to build qualities and develop skills over a longer period. One thing I think we have done well in the Premiership is develop our skills and our players well over a period of time, not just week by week.”
