SW RUGBY Bateman hooks up with Chiefs

Exeter Chiefs have bolstered their front row options ahead of the new Premiership season with the acquisition of Greg Bateman from Championship side London Welsh.

The talented hooker - who celebrates his 24th birthday today - can also play at tight-head prop if required and has agreed a two-year deal with Chiefs after spending the past two seasons with the Exiles.

Surrey-born Bateman becomes Exeter's fifth new summer signing, following Fetu'u Vainikolo (Connacht) Dave Lewis (Gloucester) Tom James and Ceri Sweeney (Cardiff Blues) to Sandy Park.
