‘Woodburn was fantastic’ – Baxter

Date published: September 26 2016

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter has praised the form of Olly Woodburn after he went over for a brace of tries against Bristol last Friday.

Woodburn, 24, has helped his Chiefs outfit respond from two defeats to start the campaign, with back-to-back victories in the Premiership.

Gambling on Sports has become quite common these days. Rugby isn’t any difference. People gamble on game results to earn and for fun. There are people who have earned thousands and millions.

Gambling is something everybody loves. Be a working professional or a sports players or any politician, everybody loves it. And Rugby players also love to play casino slots games.

And his hard work has not gone unnoticed by Baxter, who hailed his wing when speaking to BBC Radio Devon after the win at Ashton Gate.

“He was fantastic, not just in his carrying and his danger in that area, but some of his high-ball stuff was absolutely top drawer,” he said.

“He looks a big, strong, quick, hungry rugby player and those are some of the qualities we saw in him.”

Woodburn joined Exeter from Bath ahead of 2015/16 and has now established himself as a first-choice wing, which has pleased Baxter.

“He is thriving on real regular game time and lots of good input from Ali Hepher, who is doing a fantastic job with the backs,” he added.

“They look like they are thriving on the way we are trying to play and the speed we are moving the ball and the angles we are running.”
