Exeter Chiefs have confirmed that winger Tom O'Flaherty has penned a new deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

O'Flaherty made his professional rugby debut with Ospreys in 2016 and switched to Exeter Chiefs ahead of the 2017/18 season. Since then he has made 39 first team appearances for the Premiership club in which he scored 15 tries.

“I’m delighted to have re-signed with the club," he told the official site of the club.

“Since coming to Exeter my game has improved so much but I still think there is more improvement in me.

“Getting the new deal is great. I was happy to stay, we’ve got a great bunch of boys here, and the the whole environment in and around the club is really good.”

The Premiership season is currently on a suspension following the pandemic coronavirus and the 25-year-old wants to make most of the chances once the games resume.

“It’s tough for everyone at the moment,” he said.

“Personally, I can’t wait to get back amongst the lads, having a laugh, training hard and getting out on the pitch again. Hopefully, rugby gets going sooner rather than later.”

Exeter Chiefs are currently at the top of the Gallagher Premiership table with nine wins from 13 games.
