Williams heading to Exeter

Aviva Premiership play-off contenders Exeter have announced the signing of Jersey prop Harry Williams.

Williams, 23, has agreed a two-year deal and will move to Sandy Park from the Championship club this summer.

" Harry was starting to stand out as a very good set-piece forward, and we spent a bit of time breaking down his play all over the pitch," Exeter head coach Rob Baxter said.

"To be honest, I was pretty impressed with what I saw.

"The fundamentals of what you need to be a Premiership tighthead prop are there.

"He is developing, and it will be our job over the next couple of years to help him improve as much as he can. Hopefully, we can bring him through and help him become a strong Premiership tighthead."
