Exeter Chiefs Director of Rugby Rob Baxter has spoken of his delight after confirming Scotland and British Lions full-back Stuart Hogg will be heading to Sandy Park next season.
The 26-year-old back has agreed a two-year deal with the Devon club, bringing to a close a nine-season stay at current club Glasgow Warriors.
Hogg’s arrival is certainly a statement of intent from the Chiefs, but it’s a move Baxter insists is a ‘perfect fit’ for both parties.

“We’re delighted that Stuart has decided to join us,” said Baxter. “We’ve tracked him for some time and we actually wanted to sign before he signed his last contract at Glasgow.At that stage it wasn’t the right time for him to move, but now it is and we feel he will be a fantastic addition to our squad.
“Not only is he an exceptional rugby player, but we feel he brings a whole host of other attributes that we think can help really add to us as a team.”
