Kai Horstmann of Exeter Chiefs lifts the Anglo-Welsh trophy. Exeter just continues going from strength to strength.
After last year’s maiden Premiership title triumph, they are enjoying another wonderful season at the top of the table and look on course to secure a home semi-final in the playoffs once again. And they added to their trophy cabinet of course at Kingsholm last week when they beat Bath in the Anglo-Welsh Cup final. Once again new stars have emerged from Sandy Park this season, none more so than the Simmonds brothers. Number eight Sam is their top try scorer with an impressive eight in nine starts and has burst onto the international scene with England, while fly-half Joe has caught the eye in recent weeks with the third best-kicking success rate in the league with 84.13 percent, helping him keep Gareth Steenson out of the side. Director of rugby Rob Baxter played for Exeter for 14 years with 10 of them as captain before becoming forwards coach after retirement. He took over as head coach in 2009 and won promotion from the Championship in his first season in charge, overseeing the Chiefs’ remarkable progress ever since.
