Short: ‘Life couldn’t be better’

Date published: January 29 2016

Exeter Chiefs in-form winger James Short admits that his move to Devon has gone better than he could have expected.

Short has been in outstanding form for the Chiefs since his move from London Irish, and the 26-year-old scored two tries last Sunday to help Exeter reach the last eight of the Champions Cup.

After ending his contract early with Irish, Short admitted that he is thoroughly enjoying his time with Exeter ahead of this weekend's game against Worcester Warriors.

"I'm really enjoying it down here and the move has definitely exceeded all expectations," Short told the Premiership Rugby website.

"Last year wasn't the greatest year for me rugby-wise, but I have come down, jumped in at the deep end as such, and I'm really enjoying it.

"On and off the field, life couldn't be better and we have a great bunch of guys here."

Short is expecting a tough battle from Premiership newcomers Worcester, who have won two of their first nine matches in the league this season.

"It's going to be tough up there," Short added.

"If you look at Worcester's games this season, they've all been pretty close. They've got a decent side up there and we know we'll need to put in another big performance if we're to get anything from the game."
