Hunter confident Kvesic will improve at Chiefs

Date published: January 13 2017

Chiefs coach Rob Hunter says that flanker Matt Kvesic will be able to improve his game at the Exeter side.

The three-time England capped loose-forward, who is set for a move to the Chiefs, had a dip in form while at his current club Gloucester but Hunter believes that Kvesic’s new side will be the right environment for the flanker to get back to his best.

“We know his quality and by his own admission at the moment he’s probably not playing quite as well as he can,” Hunter told BBC Sport.

“By coming here and joining in with us, we can help him kick his game on and I’ll think he’ll fit in really well.”

Hunter is hoping that Kvesic will be a long a time signing and become part of the furniture at Sandy Park.

“Every player we bring in is always a long-term move, or you hope it’ll pan out that way,” added Hunter.

“He’s young, he’s English, he’s the same sort of group as Ollie Devoto, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Henry Slade and all these guys, the same sort of era, and I hope he’ll come in and play a couple of hundred games.”
