He started his career out with the Leicester Tigers academy in 2013 and played for England at youth level in the same side which contained current stars such as Jack Nowell and Henry Slade. He left Welford Road for Scarlets in 2015 where he has scored three tries in 56 appearances.
Price says he is very much looking forward to making the move to Devon for the new season and competing to get in the line-up. “It’s a great move for me. Exeter are a great club, well coached and have some very good players. I’ve enjoyed my time (at Scarlets), met and played with some great people, but just feel it’s the right time to try something new,” he said.
“Exeter are a quality side and they’ve proved that now for a number of years. They are one of the best sides in England and in Europe, so I’m looking forward to getting down there and being part of it all.”
