Exeter to bid for Premier 15s franchise

Exeter have confirmed that they will bid for a Premier 15s franchise and create a women’s team.

The 2017 champions are one of six Premiership clubs who currently do not have a women’s top tier side.


“We’ve started to add the ladies into our academy,” Exeter chief executive Tony Rowe revealed to BBC Sport.

“So it follows now that in a year or two’s time when the new licenses come out for the Premier 15s that we will apply for a licence to be one of the professional sides in England.”
