Exeter Chiefs have confirmed that Scotland international Moray Low has penned a new one-year contract with the English Premiership club.

Low made his professional rugby debut with Glasgow Warriors in 2006 and after making 150 appearances with the Scottish regional club, the 33-year-old switched to Exeter in 2014 and has been an integral part of the club since then.

He came up with a match-winning performance for the Sandy Park outfit during the Anglo-Welsh Cup final victory over Bath last season and has made 65 appearances for Exeter's first-team.

Low also enjoyed Exeter's Premiership title win during the 2016/17 season and was also part of the squad that reached the final last season where they lost to the eventual champions Saracens.

“Obviously I’m very happy to have got the new contract and that I’ll be staying with the Chiefs for another year. It’s a fantastic club to be involved with, not just in terms of the day-to-day environment, but with the group of players and coaches we have here.

“We’ve had another really good season, getting to the Prem final again and also winning the Anglo-Welsh Cup, so it shows we have a competitive squad and that we’re fighting on all fronts.

“When I first arrived, the goal was really to try and get into that top six,” he explained. “Then it was to try and get top four, which we did, and now it’s a case of trying to reach that latter end of the season with the play-offs and being in that final come the end of the season.

“Winning the title was obviously a great feeling for all of us and we’ve been very unlucky in the other two finals. It shows, though, that the club is moving in the right direction and that we’ve got a quality group of players here.

“There are still a few originals boys here, along with a few of us oldies as well, but below that there is a lot of quality, young players. What Rob has done very well over the years is he’s put together a great mix of youth and experience, got us all to play very well, and produced a great environment in which we can all thrive.”
