Exeter Chiefs have bolstered their squad for next season by today confirming the signing of Tom Price from the Scarlets.
The 26-year-old lock is Rob Baxter’s third confirmed new arrival ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, joining on a two-year deal.
The towering lock started out with the Leicester Tigers Academy back in 2013, during which time he also featured for the England Under-20s, playing alongside the likes of current Chiefs Jack Nowell, Henry Slade, Sam Hill, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Alec Hepburn, as well as playing under Rob Hunter, Exeter’s forwards coach.
It was in 2015, however, that he departed Welford Road and headed to the Principality, signing for the Scarlets where he has to date made 56 first team appearances, scoring three tries in the process.
His arrival in Devon further bolsters Baxter’s options in the second row, coming just days after the Chiefs also confirmed the arrival of fellow lock Will Witty from Newcastle Falcons.
