SATURDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER | 4.30PM

GOOD AFTERNOON LADIES AND GENTLEMEN AND WELCOME TO SANDY PARK FOR WHAT IS OUR FIRST GAME OF THE NEW 2018/19 GALLAGHER PREMIERSHIP. WELCOME

Heading into what is our ninth season in English rugby’s top flight, I’m acutely aware of how things have changed at the club over those years, both on and off the field, and how we are now perceived by not only our rivals across the division, but also by the wider rugby public itself. Where we have got to during our time in the Premiership has been a huge collective effort but, as I always say, we are a club that is continuing to develop and this coming year will be no different. Like any successful organisation, hard work from the bottom to the top is what makes everything tick – and we’re very lucky here at Exeter to have a great number of people working to put us at the forefront of the game. Having enjoyed another fantastic campaign last year – one in which we topped the division for the first time at the end of the regular season, we reached a third successive Premiership final, and we lifted the Anglo- Welsh Cup for a second time – I’m excited at how Rob and the team can continue to push forward on all fronts. Pre-season has given us the ideal build-up to what lies ahead, but the hard work begins in earnest this afternoon against Leicester Tigers, a team who over the years have proven they have the pedigree to challenge for honours year in, year out. This coming season, I know, will be extremely tough, but at the same time we have always risen to the challenges thrown in front of us. Indeed, just cast your mind back to 2010 when, aside from those associated with the Chiefs, gave us next to no chance of survival that year.

Well, the challenges have continued to keep coming in the years that have followed and, guess what, we have stood up in each and every one of them. What we have achieved – and what we want to achieve moving forward – is there for all to see. Our future is one of excitement, particularly when I see the confidence Rob and his coaches have in bringing through young, home-grown talent from our Academy set-up. We’ve seen over time the emergence of local youngsters not only making a name for themselves in the Premiership, but also on the European and International stage. This season has seen us bring in our biggest- ever influx of that Academy talent, all of whom have the capabilities of taking themselves and the club to new heights. Like all of you, I look forward to watching all of them, plus our more established stars, take to the field each week.

Enjoy the Season! TONY ROWE 

OBE, H N LLD CHAIRMAN & CHIEF EXECUTIVE EXETER RUGBY CLUB

DIRECTOR’S VIEWPOINT

GOOD AFTERNOON AND WELCOME BACK TO SANDY PARK FOR THE OPENING GAME OF THE 2018-2019 SEASON.

I hope you all had an enjoyable summer and made the most of the heat wave, it really was a summer to enjoy all the best that the Devon and Cornwall coast and countryside can offer. Indeed, for the first time in a few summers, we had to contend with a crowded Exmouth beach for some of our pre-season sessions. Rather than facing the wind and rain, it was a pleasant change to get down there and work hard in the sun. We did have to ask some people to move around to create some space for us, but they were all delighted to help out the Chiefs and also get prime spots to watch the players train and grab the odd selfie! Overall, I’d say pre-season has gone well. During the last few seasons we have got used to the shorter length of time that is available when getting to the final stages of competitions, and this means we understand the intensity levels required in training from day one. Even in shorter pre-seasons it is possible to make significant gains and our testing scores have again shown an improvement upon last season. Our bigger picture message has been to understand the team qualities that made us good last season and to make sure we keep working to improve upon these qualities. After all, they gave us a really good foundation to work from last season. We have then looked to add some finer details to our systems, while also working on individual skill development. Aligned with this, we have also spent some time discussing the importance of enjoying each challenge as it comes along – and not trying to look ahead to what might or might not happen in the future.

In some ways that is the single most important thing, sport is to be enjoyed by players and supporters alike and therefore we shouldn’t waste a single minute of a single game. I also don’t want our focus to move beyond the performances that will be required week by week – or the hard work that will be needed day-by-day. So far that good day-by-day work has helped us perform well in our last two pre-season games. Not only have we been able to look fluent in attack on top of a solid set-piece, but we have also shown real character in defence and when under territory pressure. Those tests of character will happen many times in the coming season – and how we face them will be crucial in deciding how successful we can be. Finally, can I take this opportunity to welcome Matt O’Connor, his staff, players, officials and supporters of Leicester Tigers to Sandy Park.

All the Best

BIG WALK HELPS BOLSTER FOUNDATION FUNDS

In excess of £3,000 has been added to the Exeter Foundation coffers following the highly successful Big Walk 2018 held at the weekend. Helping to raise vital funds for the Foundation, which looks to support a minimum of 20 local charities and organisations, the 100 plus walkers proudly took up the challenge of working their way around the picturesque 10-mile course that started and finished at Sandy Park, home to the Exeter Chiefs rugby team. Building on the success of previous years, once the walk was completed participants were then able to enjoy some well-earned refreshments before then settling in to watch the pre-season friendly between the Chiefs and visiting Cardiff Blues. Exeter Rugby Club Deputy Chief Executive and Foundation Trustee, Keiron Northcott said: “On behalf of the Exeter Foundation,

I wish to congratulate each and every walker who took part in this year’s Big Walk 2018. Again we had a terrific response from those involved and the money that they have helped to raise we know will help to make a difference to so many different people. “Each year we are seeing this event grow in numbers and we are confident that next year’s Big Walk will be even bigger and better.” Organisers of the event wish to thank the headline sponsors SWComms, Land Rover Experience Santander and Northcott Beaton Insurance Brokers.

ACADEMY GET’S BOOST THROUGH NEW RED BULL PARTNERSHIP Exeter Rugby Club have confirmed sports and energy drink Red Bull UK as a new key partner of the club’s Academy.

players being taken on into the first team squad, some exciting developments off the field, it’s hard not to be excited about what the future holds. “We’ve got a fantastic structure in place at the club and a group of staff who I am privileged to work with every day. Also, the support we get from the very top, people like Tony Rowe, Rob Baxter, the board, everything is in place for us to succeed. Having that backing is vital for us and underlines the culture and the ethics of what makes Exeter Chiefs so special.” Commenting on the new partnership, Rob Gibson, Exeter Chiefs Academy Manager, said: “As a club, we are delighted to welcome on board a recognised global brand such as Red Bull. They have shown over a sustained period of time their commitment to all sports, as well as helping to identify and nurture some of the world’s elite athletes. “We admire greatly what Red Bull has done in the sporting world and in partnering with them we are sure they’re going to help us take the game of rugby union to the next level. This is only the first stage of collaboration, and as time moves on further technologies will be explored to assist in the development of senior players. “The exciting proposition of this partnership can only increase the conversion rate of the rugby talent in the South West, ultimately launching more players onto the international stage.” The investment provided by Red Bull underlines their commitment to not only championing home- grown talent, but their promise to help aspiring athletes to reach the very pinnacle of their sport.

The New Zealander takes on the role from former England prop Robin Cowling, who has been the guiding light in bringing through a wealth of proven Premiership and international talent at the Chiefs over the years. Cowling, 74, will continue to maintain an advisory brief to the Chiefs, but he hands over an ever- increasing department to Gibson that is not only full of promise moving forward, but one which has also unearthed some of Rob Baxter’s prized first-team gems. As right-hand man to Cowling for the past 14 years, Gibson - together with Ricky Pellow - have helped to build the club’s stellar academy set-up, which now employs 24 full-time staff and is tasked with bringing through the cream of young rugby talent from within Devon and Cornwall. “What we have achieved in the past has helped pave the way for a new era here at the club,” said Gibson. “We’ve seen already this year with 14 academy The partnership was launched last month by Chiefs first-team players Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Sam Simmonds, Joe Simmonds and Luke Cowan Dickie, all of whom have progressed through the club’s hugely-successful academy set-up in recent years. Working together, the two brands aim to create not only unique experiences for those within the academy structure, but they will also help to revolutionise the way in which players are monitored and developed in the future with the introduction of a state-of-the-art sports science suite. The new sports science suite includes the technology and equipment to test players’ deficiencies and highlight areas which staff are able to develop and repair before the onset of stress related injuries. It will also house recovery and rehab equipment, including bone stimulators and hot and cold compression therapy systems for acute and chronic rehabilitation.

GIBSON NAMED NEW ACADEMY CHIEF Rob Gibson is looking to an ‘exciting new era’ in his coaching career after being made the new Exeter Chiefs Academy manager.

SEASON TICKET SALES SOAR TO NEW HEIGHTS

Exeter Chiefs chairman Tony Rowe OBE says it’s testament to the ‘fantastic backing’ the club receive from it’s loyal supporters that season ticket sales have risen again ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. Ahead of what will be the Devon club’s ninth year in the Gallagher Premiership, the Chiefs have recorded a 11% increase in season ticket sales compared to last season. As well as the excitement of the upcoming top-flight season, plus another hugely impressive season last term - one which included reaching a third successive Premiership Final and also capturing the Anglo-Welsh Cup - it has helped take the number of season tickets sold past the 5,000 mark. Whilst a great number of existing season ticket holders took up the option to renew their spots at an early stage, the club has also seen an increase in many first-time holders taking up the option of watching Rob Baxter’s side in action in the Premiership, Heineken Champions Cup and Premiership Rugby Cup.

Mr Rowe said: “I continue to be amazed by the support of our fans. The amount of season tickets already sold – including many first-time holders – is testament to the fantastic backing our fans continue to give the club. “Each year our average home attendance continues to rise - last year it was over 11,000 - and again there is a real feel-good factor around the club as we head into the new campaign. “With sell-outs at Sandy Park becoming more and more commonplace at Sandy Park, I’m sure Chiefs’ fans will appreciate that holding on to their season ticket, or for those purchasing a new one, this is the only way of guaranteeing their spot for all of our home games.” Season Tickets for the new season are still available to purchase with the options of payments being spread across seven months.

BAXTER ‘EXCITED’ AFTER EURO FIXTURES ARE CONFIRMED

Rob Baxter believes it’s an ‘exciting mix’ of fixtures for his Exeter Chiefs side after the Pool 2 fixtures of this season’s Heineken Champions Cup were confirmed by European Professional Rugby officials. Pitted against rivals Castres, Gloucester and Munster, it’s the Irish province who provide the first opposition to the Chiefs at Sandy Park on Saturday, October 13 (3:15pm). A week later, the Chiefs will head across to France to face last season’s Top 14 champions Castres at the Stade Pierre Fabre with a 2pm kick-off. The competition then takes a break until December when Baxter’s side will face fellow Gallagher Premiership rivals Gloucester on successive weekends. The first meeting at Sandy Park takes place on Saturday, December 8 (1pm) before they face one another again on Friday, December 14 at Kingsholm (7:45pm). The final two rounds take place in January when Castres pay their first-ever visit to Devon on Sunday, January 13 (1pm), after which it’s over to Limerick and Munster’s Thomond Park on Saturday, January 19 (5:30pm). Commenting on the fixtures, Baxter said: “In a lot of ways it’s a good set of fixtures for us. Playing Munster first up is a great start. We know Munster have huge tradition within the competition, so to start off at home against them is fantastic, not just for us as a squad, but also for the supporters of both sides as well.” After such a mouth-watering opener, Baxter knows the task gets no easier against Castres. He added: “Having them second up kind of reflects last season in a way, where we had to do the same type of test by going over to Montpellier. We know it will be a big challenge, but anyone who went to Montpellier knows what a competitive game that was and just how tough it was for us to break them down in the end. “If we can do well in those two games, get ourselves a good start and a few points on the board, I think it will set us nicely for that double-header against Gloucester. I think that’s a great draw for both of us. Not only will it be two great local derbies that will excite the supporters, but it will be in the lead- up to Christmas and we know that period always generates more excitement.”

GOPPERTH BLOW FOR WASPS Wasps could be without playmaker Jimmy Gopperth for up to nine months after anterior cruciate ligament surgery. The 35-year-old, who can play fly-half or inside centre was injured in a pre-season friendly against Connacht and will be out for six to nine months. Gopperth’s injury leaves director of rugby Dai Young in a quandary following the summer departures of Danny Cipriani to Gloucester and Kyle Eastmond to Leicester Tigers. Gopperth has scored 1,290 points in six Premiership seasons with Newcastle and Wasps. CIPRIANI FINED FOR JERSEY EXPLOITS England fly-half Danny Cipriani has been fined £2,000 and told to do 10 hours of community service by his club Gloucester after a nightclub incident in Jersey. The 30-year-old had already been fined £2,000 by magistrates after admitting common assault and resisting arrest.

TWICKENHAM CLASH IN AID OF HORNE Northampton Saints will play their Premiership game against Leicester Tigers on October 6 at Twickenham to raise money for former Saints centre Rob Horne. The Australia international retired in April after suffering nerve damage which left his right arm paralysed just 13 seconds into the game at Welford Road. “I am touched by the additional gesture the club are making in staging this game,” Horne said.

WING ASHTON HANDED SEVEN-WEEK BAN England wing Chris Ashton has been banned for seven weeks after his red card for a tip tackle in Sale Sharks’ pre-season friendly against Castres. The 31-year-old did not accept the charge for the tackle on Castres scrum-half Rory Kockott, but was found guilty by the independent panel process. Ashton, who joined Sale from Toulon this summer, will miss the first six rounds of the Premiership campaign. EXPERIENCED HEADS TO LEAD QUINS Harlequins have announced that James Horwill and Chris Robshaw will be co-captains of the club for the upcoming season. Both players are experienced internationals and have previously captained the club, Robshaw from 2010/11 to 2013/14 and Horwill last season. “We are delighted to have been able to appoint two strong leaders as co-captains,” said Paul Gustard, Harlequins Head of Rugby. “Both have proven themselves at every level of the game and exhibit the behaviours and values I want to see in the squad.” FALCONS PROP WILSON FORCED TO RETIRE Newcastle Falcons prop Scott Wilson has been forced to retire from rugby at the age of 24 because of a neck injury. Wilson suffered the injury in Falcons’ Premiership semi-final loss to Exeter in May and has been told to retire by a doctor. He made 80 appearances for Newcastle after coming through their academy and was 18 when he made his debut.

S I N C T H E G A L L A

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.

Thanks for welcoming us, Chiefs. We’re proud to be here.
