Williams commits to Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs

Exeter Chiefs prop Harry Williams has signed a new “long-term” contract with the Premiership leaders.

Williams, capped 18 times by England, has made almost 100 appearances for the Chiefs since his move from Championship side Jersey Reds.

The 28-year-old is set to add many more after agreeing a new deal.

“It was an easy decision to make,” said Williams. “I’ve been here five years now and I’m very happy down here. Ever since I came to the club, it’s been awesome and I’ve loved pretty much every minute of it.

“I knew when I left Jersey that I was moving to an ambitious club, who would bring the best out of me and challenge me in a testing environment. That’s been the case from day one, but I still feel there is still more to come from me.”

The Chiefs did not disclose details of the length of Williams’ latest contract.

The uncompromising Williams says Rob Baxter’s men are determined to scale new heights when the season resumes after being halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“I think for everyone at the club, we’re not happy sitting on our laurels and just accepting that we’re going do this and that,” added Williams.

“As a professional, you always feel you can kick on and get more out of yourselves. Here at Exeter, everything is laid out for us and the club give us a great foundation from which to build.

“I’ll admit, when I first came here I didn’t really have any so-called affiliation with the club or the city. Now, it’s pretty much home for me and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.” News wire is powered by opta
