AS WE PREPARE TO BRING THE CURTAIN DOWN ON RUGBY HERE AT SANDY PARK FOR ANOTHER YEAR, WHAT A FANTASTIC FIXTURE WE HAVE IN STORE THIS AFTERNOON WITH THE TOP TWO SIDES IN THE GALLAGHER PREMIERSHIP LOCKING HORNS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER. WELCOME

Games between ourselves and Saracens are always great occasions, not just because of the quality of talent on show, but during recent seasons we have both proved ourselves to be among the leading lights in English rugby. I’ve no doubt that today’s match will again serve up a pre-Christmas cracker for us all, especially as there is very little between either side at the top of the division, and that this is also the first meeting between the two clubs since we faced off in last May’s Premiership Final at Twickenham. Although we were defeated in our last home game here a fortnight ago against Gloucester in the Heineken Champions Cup, I was delighted to see how our lads responded against the same opposition just six days later at Kingsholm. In what was a terrific performance from start to finish, not only did we avenge the defeat of the previous week, but the five points gleaned on the night gave us our first victory in Europe this season and put us back in the melting pot in terms of Pool Two qualification. And because Castres then defeated Munster over in France the following day, it has meant our European pool is wide open for all four clubs heading into the last two rounds in the New Year, and that there is something meaningful for all of us to chase next month. As I said, this is our last home fixture of 2018 and I just wanted to thank all of you for your continued support of the club, both on and off the field. In what has been another hugely successful 12 months, I believe that we will head into 2019 once again in a strong and vibrant position.

Not only does the club continue to keep producing some outstanding results on the field, but away from the pitch we also remain in a strong position moving forward. That success, however, does not just happen and it takes a great deal of hard work – from a lot of people – to keep us ahead of the game. My heartfelt thanks goes out to all the staff here at Sandy Park for their outstanding efforts over the past year. As always though, we don’t want to stand still - and come the New Year we will be working just as hard, if not harder, to ensure the club and the business continues to prosper. Finally, as this is the last home game before the festive period, can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Regards, TONY  ROWE

DIRECTOR’S VIEWPOINT

GOOD AFTERNOON TO YOU ALL AND WELCOME BACK TO SANDY PARK FOR WHAT IS OUR RETURN TO THE GALLAGHER PREMIERSHIP AGAINST TODAY’S VISITORS, SARACENS.

Today should be a great occasion, as not only is it our pre-Christmas fixture, but it is also a top-of-the- table clash between two teams who have started the Premiership season very well. Before I talk about today’s game, I just want to reflect on the last couple of weeks, which have certainly been interesting, as we have been involved in two hugely contrasting games against the same opposition, Gloucester! Our home game was certainly not a game we enjoyed reviewing as it highlighted a couple of things that had, in truth, been dripping into our performances over a few weeks. Sometimes, though, you need a tough result to really make you address things – and often what seems like small things, can then add up to having a big effect over time – and that is probably what happened in that home fixture. However, as we have an open and honest group of players, we talked through the change of approach that would be needed for our performances to improve and, to their great credit, the team started to implement these things six days later. I’ll be honest, we weren’t perfect on the night, but we worked hard and got on with things. Some mistakes that hurt us mentally and de-railed us in the home game, this time became simple bumps in the road that we just bounced over. To go away from home in such a big game and get a bonus point win was great, but far more pleasing was to see some of our key qualities really standing out. As I said earlier, a few little negative things had probably been dripping into our training and games for a little while, almost certainly as a result of the season going pretty well and winning a lot of games. And just as little things can have negative effect if they add up, driving lots of little improvements can also add up and now we have to stay focused on adding more and more positive elements to our training and match performances to allow us to keep improving and driving on through the season.

Meanwhile, I have to congratulate a young Premiership Shield team for a great performance and win away at Harlequins on Monday. The team really came together and stood up in a tight game to force periods of pressure that finally won us the game. We had several academy players making their senior debuts for us and they all grew to the challenge. We also have a great challenge to meet today in the form of Saracens and that is really what we need right now. Until last week we haven’t really revelled in the biggest challenges we have faced so far this season, so this is a great opportunity for us to do just that and enjoy striving for an improvement in performance from last week. Finally, as well as wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, I’d like to welcome Mark McCall, his fellow coaches, players, staff, officials and supporters of Saracens to Devon today.

All the best, ROB BAXTER DIRECTOR OF RUGBY EXETER RUGBY CLUB

TOWNSEND SET FOR SPELL ON THE SIDELINES WITH INJURY

Exeter Chiefs Director of Rugby Rob Baxter says it’s likely Stu Townsend will be out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. The scrum-half had only been on the pitch for five minutes in the recent Heineken Champions Cup clash at home to Gloucester, before he was forced off and replaced by Joe Simmonds, who had to act as an emergency number nine for the hosts in the latter stages. “Stu Townsend has got a pretty serious knee injury and is probably out for the rest of the season,” said Baxter. On the plus side, Olly Woodburn marked his return to action in Monday’s Premiership Shield game against Harlequins. Luke Cowan-Dickie is also back in today’s match-day squad, while Jonny Hill is edging ever closer to a return following finger surgery.

CHIEFS DUO READY TO TEST THEIR SPORTING KNOWLEDGE

Exeter Chiefs duo Sam Simmonds and Alex Cuthbert are among six sporting stars from the region who will be battling it out for glory in our annual Question of Sport night at Sandy Park next month. England international Simmonds will go head-to- head against Wales and British Lions winger Cuthbert in our own unique spin-off of the hit BBC TV show. The pair will be joined on the night by Exeter City footballers Jake Taylor and Pierce Sweeney, as well as Somerset cricketer James Hildreth and former Team GB swimmer Liam Tancock. As always, the night – which takes place on Thursday, January 24 (7pm) – will be hosted by former Head of Sport at ITV Westcountry, Mark Tyler. Tickets for the event are available to purchase now via the Sandy Park website – www.sandypark.co.uk – at a cost of £10 without food or £15 with food.

RECORD-BREAKING CHRISTMAS AT SANDY PARK

It seems Sandy Park has been at the top of everyone’s Christmas wish-list with the award- winning Exeter venue producing a record-breaking festive period. During the month of December, over 5,000 people will tuck into one of the many lunches and party nights being served up at the popular Conference & Banqueting Centre. Head Chef Craig Beacham and his team have been working around the clock, not only serving up a plethora of Christmas meals, but also catering for the recent Gloucester match-day in the Heineken Champions Cup and, of course, today’s sell-out clash against Saracens in the Gallagher Premiership. In what has certainly been a manic period for the Sandy Park kitchen, by the time they sign off in the next day or two, the kitchen will have cooked over 200 turkey crowns, half a tonne of potatoes, 250 kilos of carrots and over 3,000 Christmas puddings. Bev Gratton, Sandy Park conference and events sales manager, said: “Christmas is always a busy time for us here at Sandy Park, but this year we have seen a significant rise in our bookings, taking us for the first time to in excess of 5,000 guests.

“Such has been the demand from people wanting to book parties with us that we have not only had to add additional nights to the calendar, but our bookings have become even earlier with our first happening at the end of November.”

EXETER CHIEFS FOUNDATION & DEVON WOODEN SPOON CHRISTMAS LUNCH THURSDAY 6TH DECEMBER 2018

Christmas has certainly come early for two of Devon’s biggest charities - the Exeter Chiefs Foundation and Wooden Spoon Devon - following a hugely successful and enjoyable joint Christmas lunch. Bringing together the Foundation, the official charity of Exeter Chiefs, and Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby, over 400 guests helped to raise in excess of £22,000 for the two charities during the annual event held at Sandy Park. Hosted by former Bath, Saracens and England prop David Flatman, guests were not only treated to a sumptuous three-course dinner prepared by Head Chef Craig Beatham, but they were royally entertained with two Question & Answer slots featuring Exeter Chiefs’ international stars Jack Nowell, Nic White, Alec Hepburn and Harry Williams.

The quartet not only gave an insight into Chiefs life, but also regaled the audience with anecdotes from their international careers, as well as life away from the rugby pitch. Also part of the day’s activities, Scotsman Brian Murray handed over a cheque for £8,600 to Wooden Spoon Devon Chairman Roger Haywood after he cycled 4,300 miles in 22 days as part of the TransAm race across America, while a cheque for £27,000 was presented to Exeter Chiefs Foundation Foundation Chairman Tony Rowe OBE from David Cosford, who led over 30 riders from Exeter to Castres in France as part of their annual Exeter Chiefs European Cycle Challenge. A fun-filled afternoon was capped off with entertainment from leading comedian Andy Oakley.

WASPS PRESS AHEAD WITH CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE PLANS Wasps are finalising a planning application to Warwick District Council to build a centre of excellence for rugby. Earlier this year the club revealed their vision to build a new training ground at the home of Old Leamingtonians RFC on the outskirts of Leamington. The planning application is the next stage of the exciting development after both Old Leamingtonians RFC and Wasps agreed and finalised legal contracts, providing Wasps with a long lease and the ability to create purpose- built, state-of-the-art facilities. The new-look facilities would include a rugby pitch for every age group at Old Leamingtonians RFC, and a new artificial pitch so matches and training can continue throughout winter. Wasps will also have pitches to train on and use during the day, including an artificial pitch, and a modern elite training centre.

PIUTAU’S WORLD CUP HOPES ARE DASHED The hopes of playing at next year’s World Cup for former All Black utility back Charles Piutau have taken a significant hit, with attempts to bring forward an Olympic-qualifying Sevens tournament forward failing. The 26-year-old fullback, currently playing for Bristol, hoped to switch his national allegiance to Tonga by completing a three-year stand-down period and becoming eligible by playing for his new country in an Olympic-qualifying Sevens tournament. Whilst he has completed the first part of that equation, the next Olympic-qualifying tournament won’t be held until after next year’s tournament, despite attempts to bring it forward. Piutau missed the 2015 Rugby World Cup squad after announcing he would be departing New Zealand to take up a deal with Wasps in the Premiership. He will now have to wait until the 2023 edition to play, either by completing a switch to Tonga or moving back to New Zealand to resume his All Blacks career.

YOUNGS OUT UNTIL THE NEWYEARWITH KNEE INJURY Leicester Tigers have received a fresh injury blow with news that hooker Tom Youngs will be out until the New Year with a knee injury. Interim Head Coach Geordan Murphy confirmed that the injury suffered in the home game against Saracens a fortnight ago will keep the England and British Lions forward on the sidelines for several weeks. “Tom doesn’t need an operation on his knee, but he has a medial tear,” said Murphy. “Hopefully it is not too severe and he should be back in the new year at some stage.” Murphy is also having to cope with the loss of Telusa Veianu (foot), Mathew Tait (Achilles) and Harry Simmons (knee), who are also on the long-term injury list.

WIGGLESWORTH EXTENDS HIS STAY FOR ANOTHER YEAR Saracens have announced that scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth has extended his contract for another year. The 35-year-old, who became the all- time Premiership appearance holder in September, will remain at Allianz Park until the summer of 2020, taking him up to 10 seasons with the Men in Black. Wigglesworth won domestic honours in his first Saracens campaign in 2010/11 and has gone on to add a further three English titles to his name as well as two European Cups. On his new deal, Wigglesworth said: “I’ve been lucky enough to have been part of the club for nine years and I don’t think there’s too many people who have wanted to leave, and there’s a lot of people who have wanted to come. I’m just one of those many people who want to be associated with the club. I’ve enjoyed a lot of success here and I’m not interested in that finishing at the moment.”

GRAYSON PENS FIRST SENIOR CONTRACT AT SAINTS Fly-half James Grayson has signed his first senior contract with Northampton Saints. The 20-year-old England age-group international first signed with the Senior Academy at Franklin’s Gardens back in 2016, but has now penned a deal that will see him stay with his boyhood club until 2021. Grayson – who has featured in eight of Saints’ first-team matches so far this season – is relishing the prospect of representing Northampton for at least two more seasons. “Northampton is my home and Saints is the club I’ve supported all my life, so naturally I’m ecstatic to be signing,” he said. “The club have supported my development throughout my junior career and I’ve never imagined playing anywhere else. “We’re going through an exciting period of change at Franklin’s Gardens at the moment and I’m certain that Northampton is the best place for me to grow as a player – we’ve got a great environment here and I’m learning so much from the coaches and senior players.”

Our founder Arthur J. Gallagher – ‘Art’ to his friends – had a certain way of doing business. It was unmistakable. And somewhat innovative for 1927. Art was a relationship guy; community was in his blood, insurance knowledge in his soul. He knew that if he understood his customers, he could identify and reduce their risk. Treating people as he wished to be treated was paramount for Art – he valued their opinion and encouraged excellence at all times. That same year, far from our Chicago home, Bill Braddon and his teammates were young men with matching values and sense of community. Bill joined Exeter at just 17, played over 100 games for the club, registering nearly 200 points. 90 years later, here at Sandy Park, the spirit of Art and Bill has come together as we embark on the Gallagher Premiership.
