New Exeter deals for Thomas Waldrom and Harry Williams

Aviva Premiership club Exeter have announced contract extensions for number eight Thomas Waldrom and prop Harry Williams.

The deals follow fresh terms recently agreed by a number of other Exeter players, including Waldrom's fellow England internationals Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie.

Waldrom, one of the Premiership's most prolific try-scorers, and Williams will remain at Sandy Park until at least 2018.

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter said: " What we have done is moved quickly to extend the deals for both lads.

"They were both under contract for this season, but we've extended them by a year and got things done nice and early.

"It's a reward for both of them for doing so well, but it also keeps that solidity within the squad that we like to have."

Waldrom has scored 36 tries in 54 appearances for the Chiefs, while Williams also made a strong impression last season when Exeter reached the Premiership final and were European Champions Cup quarter-finalists.
