DENNIS SIGNS NEW EXETER CHIEFS CONTRACT


DAVE DENNIS has signed a new contract with Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs.

The Australian forward has penned a two-year deal with the Devon club.

Dennis arrived at Sandy Park in the summer of 2016 from his native Australia and the former Waratahs forward has played a significant role in helping bring success and silverware to the Chiefs.

He capped his first season in England by helping his new club to become Premiership champions for the first time in their history. Then, 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 says he is targeting yet 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 there is still lots we want to achieve 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.”
