SW RUGBY Dennis pens new two-year Chiefs deal

Dave Dennis Exeter Chiefs courtesy Exeter ChiefsDave Dennis has penned a new two-year deal with Gallagher Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs.

Brought to Devon in summer 2016 from his native Australia, the Sydney-born former Waratahs forward has already played a significant role in helping bring success and silverware to Sandy Park.

Dennis capped his first season in England by helping Chiefs become Premiership champions for the first time in the club’s history, defeating Wasps after extra-time at Twickenham. Last season he was on the winners’ podium again, featuring in Exeter’s Anglo-Welsh Cup Final win over Bath at Kingsholm.

Now the 33-year-old is targeting more success with the Chiefs, who are setting their sights on reaching a fourth successive Premiership Final come June.

“Whenever you play, you want to be part of a successful team,” said Dennis. “I’ve been lucky to have had some success already with the club but we want to achieve more over these next few years.

“Winning the title that first season was obviously pretty special, but what I’ve appreciated since is the way we’ve just continued to keep chasing things. This is my third season at the club, but our focus and our goals, they’ve not changed at all. All the time we’re striving hard as a group to get better and do well in every competition we enter.”

Dennis is the latest Chief to commit his future to the club, although head coach Rob Baxter will be adding new faces. Scotland and British Lions full-back Stuart Hogg is the first confirmed summer arrival. Others are expected to be confirmed in the not too distant future.
