BACKING CHIEFS FOR 25 YEARS

swcomms is not just a logo on a shirt. We are the main club sponsor and support them every day with our IT and communications services.

CAN WE BACK YOUR BUSINESS TOO? SWCOMMS.CO.UK

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to Sandy Park for what is the opening game of the new 2019/20 season. WELCOME

In what is our 10th season as a top-flight club, I think it’s only right that I start these notes with a quick reflection on what has been achieved here at the club – both on and off the field – since we were promoted back in the summer of 2010. At that time there were plenty of people within the game that gave us next-to-no hope when we kicked off that inaugural fixture here against Gloucester. On that occasion – and plenty of times since – we rose to the challenge and we showed what Exeter Rugby Club are all about. Our success over the years is something that we pride ourselves on here at the Chiefs, particularly as it’s not something you can simply generate out of thin air. What we have achieved is down to a strong and dedicated group of people, all of whom work tirelessly to put us at the forefront of the modern-day game. Strong leadership is paramount to what we want to achieve, both now and in the future, and over the summer we further enhanced those helping to drive the club forward by appointing four new female directors [Natasha Pavis, Lisa Duncan, Toni Percival and Nicky Teague] to the board of Exeter Rugby Club Limited. At the same time, we have also built significantly on our promoting our brand and improving on our position to remain a highly successful and profitable business. For us to be in that position, the support of all our sponsors plays a vital part, so we thank each and every one of them for their continued backing. In particular, I must make special mention to SW Comms, who this season are celebrating their 25th year of sponsorship of the club. What initially started out as a small sponsorship package brokered between myself and John Baxter at the old County Ground, now relates to a yearly seven-figure sum, spread across all areas of the club, including the first-team and our academy bases at Exeter and Truro Colleges. It’s a fantastic relationship and, I’ve been reliably informed, is the longest-running association between a business and a club within the game in this country.

Like SW Comms, I’m delighted that another leading brand within the region, Flybe, are continuing their support of the club into a tenth season. Looking ahead to the season itself, it’s been a busy close season with a great deal of work being carried out both within the building and the stadium itself. All of these works have been done to improve the facilities, not just for the players and the staff that work here, but also all our clients and supporters who continue to use Sandy Park on a regular basis. Our award-winning match-day experience will be enhanced with the introduction of a number of new facilities, including the Pow Wow Bar, which we believe will be a popular addition for supporters both before and after the game, whilst the introduction of a fully operational, cashless stadium will help to minimise waiting times and improve the speed of service from all of our outlets. Finally, with it being a Rugby World Cup year, can I take this opportunity to wish all of our players featuring over in Japan the very best of luck. It doesn’t seem five minutes ago that we were ourselves hosting three fixtures here at Sandy Park during the 2015 tournament. We saw then what exposure Exeter gleaned globally from hosting World Cup games and it’s something we have looked to

build on ever since. Enjoy the season!

SATURDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER | 3.00PM

Good afternoon to you all and welcome back to Sandy Park for the first game of the 2019-2020 season, where we kick things off with a local derby against our near neighbours, Bath. DIRECTOR’S VIEWPOINT

I hope you have all had a good summer, enjoyed the weather (well, sometimes!), made the most of the local scenery and perhaps taken in some of the other sporting events that have taken place. It has been a slightly longer pre-season than normal due to the Rugby World Cup and some season restructuring that has taken place. It has meant that most clubs have had some periods of heavy work, interspersed with a little more break time for the players. For all of us, I think it will be one of the interesting elements to the start of the season to see who has got the most out of those extra few weeks. Starting the season with the Premiership Rugby Cup has also created a slightly different situation to other seasons, and again I can see every club approaching it slightly differently. Speaking to other Directors of Rugby, it seems like everyone has slightly different plans. Some are going to rotate the squad through the four Cup games, others are going to use the middle two rounds to prepare the senior squad, while others are going to focus on what looks like being their starting team for the Gallagher Premiership playing in the final two rounds. This, I believe, will certainly make it an interesting competition and I expect some young players will have a great opportunity to break through into senior teams. As for ourselves, it feels like we have had a good, hard-working pre-season. Again, the bulk of the work has been done here on site, but we have also had the benefit of support from Ladram Bay Holiday Park and the River Dart Country Park to allow us to do some team building away from the club in great surroundings. Red Bull also lined up a surfing and recovery day at Saunton Sands that the players really enjoyed. Of course, we’ve also had our usual big contact sessions at Exmouth beach to round

off training weeks, which the players probably enjoyed most when they were finished! Obviously, the proof of any pre-season is only shown once you hit the pitch and that all starts today. It is of course also the start of the season for our supporters, so get your voices warmed up and get ready to chant! I also want to wish our World Cup players good luck in their respective campaigns. I know we will all be watching with great interest and wishing them the best. Finally, can I take this opportunity to welcome Stuart Hooper, his fellow coaches, players, staff, officials and supporters of Bath here today. All the best! ROB BAXTER

SANDY PARK GOES

CASHLESS THIS SEASON

Supporters visiting Sandy Park can expect an even faster and slicker service on match-days with the news that all outlets around the stadium will be cashless.

GOING CONTACTLESS IS THE PERFECT FIT FOR THE STADIUM ENVIRONMENT “

large parts of the stadium last season, we saw the benefits straight away. “If you think there is a very short window of time within a match when customers are wanting to be served, increasing the number of customers served in a 15-minute window can have a huge impact on the revenue numbers at the end of the day, and we believe it also improves the experience for supporters who aren’t having to wait in long queues.” The cashless stadium will be fully operational from the opening game of the season, which is the Premiership Rugby Cup clash with Bath on Saturday, September 21.

Having first introduced the cashless option at selected bars and food outlets during the 2017/18 season, the scheme was extended ahead of last season with the view that the whole stadium would be cashless by the start of the 2019/2020 campaign. Keen to ensure more and more supporters who visit for Exeter Chiefs fixtures get the most from the award-winning, match-day experience, club officials have made it a priority to have quicker service points and more cashless selling areas during busy periods on game day and for events held at the stadium throughout the course of the year. “Going contactless is the perfect fit for the stadium environment,” said Sandy Park managing director, Natasha Pavis. “After introducing the scheme a couple of years ago, then extending it to

FRENCH TRIP KICKSTARTS NEW EURO SEASON FOR CHIEFS Exeter Chiefs will kick-off their 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup campaign with a trip to French Top 14 side La Rochelle.

Rob Baxter’s side will embark on their latest European season on Saturday, November 16 at the Stade Marcel Deflandre (kick-off 4:15pm). It will be Exeter’s second trip to the French club, having previously played them back in December 2014 in the European Challenge Cup when they won 36-10. Following the trip across the English Channel, the Chiefs will play host to Glasgow Warriors at Sandy Park on Saturday, November 23 (3:15pm). The two clubs have previously met four times in the competition with the Scottish outfit winning three of the four meetings. Exeter’s sole victory was two years ago when they won 24-15. After the opening two rounds of action, Europe will take a brief break before returning in December with it’s traditional back-to-back fixtures in Rounds Three and Four. This season, the Chiefs will face familiar foes when they come up against Gallagher Premiership rivals, Sale Sharks. The two will meet first at the AJ Bell Stadium on Sunday, December 8 (3:15pm), before locking horns again a week later on Sunday, December 15 (1pm) at Sandy Park. Again, there will be a month’s break from the competition before the pool stages are wrapped up with the final two games in January. The Chiefs first travel to Glasgow on Saturday, January 11 (3:15pm), before concluding their Pool Two fixtures with a home encounter against La Rochelle on Saturday, January 18 (5:30pm). All six games will be screened live on BT Sport and Bein Sports.

SUPPORTERS PACK IN FOR CHIEFS OPEN DAY

With the new season just a week away for the Exeter Chiefs, supporters of the Gallagher Premiership club were able to get up close and personal with their favourites stars as Sandy Park opened its doors for the club’s 2019 Open Day.

Huge numbers poured into the stadium for the chance to not only get a rare glimpse behind the scenes at the club, but at the same time they got to meet and greet many of Rob Baxter’s first-team squad, as well as the chance to take part in a series of activities in and around the main pitch. Those who attended the fun-filled family event were also treated to live music in the Wigwam Bar, which also played host to a special Gin Festival that offered those who visited the chance to try 20 different types of Westcountry-based gin. The Community Chiefs department, aided by members of the first-team squad, had a series of rugby-based skills activities for youngsters to test out. Adults and children alike were able to go inside the tunnel to the playing side where they were able to find out more about day-to-day life at the club, a look at the recently developed first-team changing room, plus a first glance of the new recovery suite, which includes new hot and cold pools and a hot tub.

SUPPORTERS CAN SPICE UP THEIR LIFE WITH NEW CHIEFS RUM

Supporters of the Exeter Chiefs will be able to further stock their drinks cabinet this season with the launch of a new special edition Chiefs Rum.

The club has teamed up with Two Drifters Distillery to launch a spiced rum and a dark rum, which will be on sale at Sandy Park and online from today. Exeter-born and bred Russ and Gemma Wakeham established Two Drifters Distillery in April 2019, creating their rum in a bespoke warehouse near Exeter Airport. As well as their local credentials, Two Drifters Distillery are the world’s first carbon negative distiller, ensuring every part of their rum production is carbon negative by offsetting their carbon dioxide emissions through direct air capture. The Chiefs Rum will be presented in an Exeter Chiefs commemorative bottle – of which 20 of each type have been personally signed by Exeter Rugby Club Chairman and Chief Executive Tony Rowe OBE and Chiefs’ Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter. The exclusively signed bottles will be on sale on a first-come, first-served basis prior to today’s fixture against Bath, with opportunities to taste the rum

and meet the Two Drifters Distillery team on the piazza. The rum will then be available exclusively at Sandy Park’s Trading Post and online shop at a cost of £44.95 per bottle, as well as by the glass on bars throughout the stadium.

NEW CHIEF VERMEULEN EXCITED AT WHAT LIES AHEAD Exeter Chiefs newcomer Jacques Vermeulen has spoken of his excitement at joining the Gallagher Premiership club on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old forward heads to Devon from South African Super Rugby outfit, the Sharks, and is the latest addition Chiefs’ Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, has made to his squad ahead of the 2019/20 season. Vermeulen got his first glimpse of Sandy Park on Monday having jetted in from Cape Town and will now waste little time in integrating himself into the club’s first-team squad. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to come to a world class club like Exeter Chiefs,” said Vermeulen. “Today, I feel like a little boy again, very excited about the challenge and just being part of the team. “I’ve watched a lot of games on TV and I saw Sandy Park is always full on match-days. The team itself plays very good rugby and I can’t wait to be part of the vibe of the team, learning about the culture and doing my best for the club.” Having started his senior career with Western Province, Vermeulen has been with the Sharks since 2017 and was a prominent figure this past season for them, featuring in 16 Super Rugby fixtures, as well as helping his side reach the semi-final of the Currie Cup.

However, he insists the time has come for him – and a number of fellow Sharks – to challenge themselves in the testing waters of the Gallagher Premiership. “It’s a privilege for me to come here,” he added. “As I said, I’ve watched a lot of games on TV and you can see it’s a very high level of rugby. Exeter have proved they are a top team, challenging each season and I like the way they play and the way they are coached.” And Vermeulen believes moving away from his homeland to that of England can only help develop his overall game. “I think whatever competition you play in, it brings a different dimension to your rugby,” he continued. “I’m sure I will learn heaps of stuff because it will be so different to Super Rugby. The Chiefs you can see have a great culture, a winning culture. “Already I’ve met a few of the guys and the vibe around the place is great. Everyone was so welcoming and I can’t wait to get started.”

Excitement is already building ahead of the start of the new 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership, which kicks-off in a month’s time with Bristol Bears v Bath Rugby on Friday, October 18 (7:45pm). In what promises to be another action-packed campaign, full of highs and lows, the big question remains: who will topple reigning champions Saracens to claim English rugby’s top prize next June? Rob Baxter’s Exeter Chiefs came within a whisker of doing just that back in June, narrowly going down 37-34 to the Londoners in the end of season showpiece at Twickenham. However, there will be many other clubs looking to stake their claim this time round, particularly with an influx of world class talent arriving during the close season. PREMIERSHIP PREVIEW

BATH RUGBY

DIRECTOR OF RUGBY Stuart Hooper

Born on November 18, 1981 in Exeter. Having been part of the rugby programme at Ivybridge Community College, Hooper joined Saracens in 1999 and spent four years with the Londoners. In 2003, the powerful lock moved to Leeds Carnegie and within two years was made captain, leading them to Powergen Cup glory in 2005 at Twickenham. Hooper signed for Bath during the summer of 2008 and went on to make over 170 appearances for the club, before having to retire due to injury in 2016. That same year he took on the role of Performance and Player Development Director, before taking over this season as Director of Rugby from the departed Todd Blackadder.

CAPTAIN Matt Garvey

Born in Thurrock on October 23, 1987. Started his Premiership career with London Irish, where he came through the Academy ranks, before making his senior debut during the 2009/10 season. Amassed over 80 appearances for the Exiles during his time with the club. Garvey moved to Bath ahead of the 2013/14 season and has since gone on to establish himself as a key figure within the club’s pack of forwards. Made captain ahead of the current campaign, taking over the role from fellow back-row forward Guy Mercer. Garvey has represented England Saxons in the past.

Stuart Hooper insists his Bath side can’t afford to hold back as they prepare to kick-off their new season against Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership Rugby Cup this afternoon. In what will be his first season in charge - Hooper took over at The Rec this summer from the departing Todd Blackadder - the former club captain insists there can be no easy progression into his vision for success. “I think what is really important is we have been developing some fundamental parts of our game that we want to develop throughout the season - and that they are not something you can just hold back,” said Hooper. “These are things we will want to see from minute one of the first game. Whoever is on field, whatever combinations those are, these are things we believe we can bring to the game.” Hooper rightly acknowledges that putting his methods into practice will not happen overnight, but he aims to use the four-game Premiership Rugby Cup as the perfect opportunity to get his side up and running for the start of the Gallagher Premiership, which starts for Bath in a month’s time with an away trip to arch rivals Bristol Bears. “I’d be lying if I was saying we are going to do everything we thought we could do throughout the season in these four games,” added Exeter-born Hooper. “Firstly, because there is simply not enough time. And secondly, because there are a few things we

will want to keep back to surprise the opposition.” Hooper’s quest will also be hampered by the fact that he has a large number of his first-team squad missing through injury or inclusion in squads at the Rugby World Cup, which started yesterday over in Japan. Eddie Jones’ England have robbed him of the services of Anthony Watson, Joe Cokanisiga, Jonathan Joseph, Sam Underhill and Ruaridh McConnochie, while the experienced Francois Louw is part of South Africa’s 31-man squad. On the injury front, first-team stars such as Henry Thomas, Matt Garvey, Darren Atkins, Will Stuart and Taulupe Faletau are also sidelined, although Hooper has this week given a positive outlook on many of those, insisting it should not be too long before they return to competitive action. Hooper said: “Will’s been training full on and has reacted very well to the programme, and put himself in a really good position to have some involvement with us. “Taulupe’s still in an early rehab phase. He’s working hard, he’s working well and we’ll see him soon enough. It’s the same for Garvs and Darren Atkins who are still in their rehab phases.” With so many key names unavailable, it will certainly test Hooper’s squad during the early weeks of the season. However, the Director of Rugby believes it will offer opportunities within the club’s ranks to stake their claim. And one man who will be hoping to impress is summer signing Mike Williams, who has joined the club from league rivals Leicester Tigers. Hooper this week cast aside newspaper speculation linking the imposing forward with a loan move to

32

SATURDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER | 3.00PM

Championship side Yorkshire Carnegie, even before he has made a start for his new club. “That’s speculation,” said Hooper. “All of our players have a detailed programme around when they play, how they play and the time they get in the middle of the field. “We need to manage people’s game time and, with regard to people playing for Bath or away from Bath, those are things that are speculation at the moment but we’ll manage day by day. “Everything we’re doing is building up to putting the best team out against Bristol (the Premiership opener on October 18) and beyond. “Whatever that means for our players along the journey, they want to be part of that team which plays against Bristol and we’ll make it work.”

Chris Cook is a graduate of the Bath Rugby Academy, having made his academy debut back in 2009. The quick-thinking scrum-half, an Old Millfieldian, spent much of the 2013/14 season on loan at London Welsh in the Championship, and was at the heart of the Exiles’ successful promotion to the Aviva Premiership.
