Scrum-half Dave Lewis has become the latest Exeter Chiefs star to commit his long-term future to the club.

With his contract set to expire at the end of the current season, head coach Rob Baxter has wasted little time in making sure he has the services of the talented 25-year-old for the next two years.

Since arriving from rivals Gloucester at the start of last season, Lewis has been an integral part of the Chiefs make-up and helped the Devon outfit secure their first-ever piece of silverware when they won the LV= Cup.

Although an elbow injury sustained in pre-season has hampered his opportunities this term, Lewis admits the decision to prolong his stay at Sandy Park was an easy one.

“When I was talking to Rob, it was one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make, simply because the rugby side of things was going so well,” said Lewis.

“With the stadium redevelopment going on as well, it’s a pretty awesome place to play.

“For me, it’s nice to get things sorted early and it means I can just concentrate on my rugby and have things sorted for the next couple of years. As I’ve said before, I’ve really enjoyed my time here, we’ve done really well, we’ve come on leaps and bounds in the time I’ve been here, yet we’re still pushing to get even better.”
