Exeter duo Dave Ewers and Max Bodilly have penned new deals with Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs.
Exeter have confirmed the contract extensions of Zimbabwean-born backrow Dave Ewers and exciting young back Max Bodilly.
Both players are products of an impressive Academy system at Exeter and will prove instrumental cogs in the Chiefs machine until at least 2020.
“It’s very important for all kinds of reasons to keep hold of homegrown talent,” explained Baxter. “We often talk about creating those strong links with the local community and decisions like this are the way to do that. People who come to Sandy Park at a weekend for a game, they want to see these local guys performing and playing well.
“Equally, it’s up to those players to go out and prove they deserve to be here and that they have the qualities to succeed and help take the club onto that next level. Both those things need to marry up for it to work and, as I’ve said before, we’re keen to keep the right people here at the club and both Dave and Max are the right people for us.”
