‘Thanks for that’ – Jack Nowell exits interview after audacious question

This is the story of how Jack Nowell proved he’s not just a rugby superstar but a comedy legend too!

So, there’s Jack, the Exeter Chiefs winger, minding his own business after a game, and in comes BT Sport’s Sonja McLaughlan, ready for a post-match interview. But little did Jack know, Sonja had a hilarious trick up her sleeve.

She referenced rumours that Jack might be headed to La Rochelle next season and slyly stated, “You haven’t picked a bad club to come to.” But Jack wasn’t about to be caught off guard, no sirree!

Instead of being flustered, Jack gave a big laugh and quipped, “Yeah, yeah, thanks for that!” before sauntering off the stage like the cool cat he is. It was a moment that had everyone in stitches, even Sonja!

BREAKING: Exeter Chiefs confirm THREE new signings

Exeter fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the club announces the signing of three new players today with more set to follow..

This news comes as a welcome distraction from the weeks of headlines about their star players leaving for foreign clubs. Departures from the team at the end of the season include Sam Simmonds, Joe Simmonds, Harry Williams, Jannes Kirsten, and Dave Ewers, with Jack Nowell expected to join them.

Check out their new signings below:

#1. Will Haydon-Wood

Heading to Sandy Park ahead of the 2023/24 season is former Newcastle Falcons and Wasps fly-half, Will Haydon-Wood, who will join the Gallagher Premiership club from French Pro D2 side, Massy Esonne.

The 22-year-old playmaker is no strange to English rugby’s top-flight and his addition is another boost for the Chiefs, who have already confirmed the arrivals of Joe Hawkins and Ethan Roots from the Ospreys.

“It’s a really exciting move for me,” said the former England Under-20s international. “Obviously, I’ve come up against the Chiefs in the past and I know how much of a force they have become, not just within the English game, but also across Europe as well.

“Talking with Rob [Baxter] he’s outlined the vision of the club and how they are in the process of building a new and exciting, young squad. Listening to what he had to say and with the players they have at the club, it was a pretty easy decision in the end.”

Having started this season at Wasps following a number of years at the Falcons, Haydon-Wood was forced to look for new employment last October when the Midlands club were forced to withdraw from all competitions following the collapse of the former English and European champions.
