Chiefs hearing moved to next week

Exeter are set to face a disciplinary hearing next week after they admitted to fielding too many overseas players in an Aviva Premiership game against Leeds.

The hearing had been scheduled for Wednesday but was moved to ensure Exeter chief executive Tony Rowe, who is currently out of the country, could attend.

Exeter are now waiting to hear from the Rugby Football Union about the exact date.

Premiership clubs are only allowed to include two players from outside of Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific islands in their 23-man matchday squads.

The Chiefs face being docked league points for naming three overseas-registered players for the defeat at Headingley on April 3.
