Forward Stan South says he is relishing a new “challenge” with Exeter Chiefs after finalising a move. The forward, who can play at lock or in the back-row, was released by Harlequins at the end of 2018-19 and was set to join Championship side Coventry on a two-year deal.
However, Exeter has swooped for his services and he heads to Sandy Park as Rob Baxter’s fourth signing of the summer. South has put pen to paper on a one-year contract and insists he is excited to be joining a “top club”.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” South said. “It’s going to be great joining a top club, who have for a number of seasons now have been in and around the top of the Premiership. Looking from the outside you can see they have a strong unit down there and having played against them a few times, I know how tough a side they are to face.
“For me it’s a new start, a new challenge, but it’s one that I can’t wait to get stuck into. “I really enjoyed my five years with Harlequins and will forever be thankful for the opportunities they gave me, but this is a new opportunity for me to work with new players, new coaches and add to my skill-set. Moving into a different environment will definitely test me in new ways, but it’s also a chance for me to show what I can bring to the team.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
