Exeter Chiefs are currently looking forward to the new Premier league season starting with an away fixture at London Welsh, followed by a prestigeous home fixture against Leicester Tigers. The new grandstand will be open for the first time at the home game against Leicester.. The Chiefs won their first first major top flight trophy in 2014 by winning a nail biting LV cup at Sandy Park.. Exeter Chiefs also has a number of test capped players and no doubt it will be an intriguing challenge to see how Rob and the team respond to the dual challenges of winning matches while test players are absent playing for their countries.
Rob Baxter supported England's tour of Argentina in the summer of 2013.The Exeter head coach had taken on the interim role of forwards coach while Graham Rowntree was on British and Irish Lions duty in Australia. Baxter’s elevation to the England set-up – which also included back-row forward Tom Johnson – is recognition of the work he has done at Exeter, first to get them promoted into the Aviva Premiership and then deliver Heineken Cup rugby to Sandy Park, but for the former lock, the journey started in the lower divisions two decades ago when he first took over the captaincy of Exeter. Rob has also been recognised by being named in the Premiership Hall of Fame.
Rob Baxter says he feels 'very honoured' to have been inducted into the Premiership hall of fame.
He joins former England captains Martin Johnson and Lewis Moody, Leicester hooker George Chuter - who has played more games in the English top flight than anyone else - ex-World Cup final referee Ed Morrison and Tom Walkinshaw.
Baxter said: "I feel very honoured that Premiership Rugby has chosen me to be included in their hall of fame. Just looking at those who have been named alongside me – and also those that have been included previously – I know I am in very good company.-well done Rob
