Part and parcel of Rob Baxter’s squad ever since, the 33-year-old prop underlined his proven qualities last season by producing a man-of-the-match display in the club’s Anglo-Welsh Cup final victory over Bath at Kingsholm.
Since making his debut in the away win at London Welsh In September 2014, Low has amassed 65 first team appearances for the Chiefs, scoring six tries in the process.
Reflecting on his new deal, the Torphins-born forward said: “Obviously I’m very happy to have got the new contract and that I’ll be staying with the Chiefs for another year. It’s a fantastic club to be involved with, not just in terms of the day-to-day environment, but with the group of players and coaches we have here.
“We’ve had another really good season, getting to the Prem final again and also winning the Anglo-Welsh Cup, so it shows we have a competitive squad and that we’re fighting on all fronts.”
Having played over 150 times for the Warriors during an eight-year stint with the Scottish club, Low says he knew from early discussions with Chiefs’ supremo Baxter that he was moving to a club with real drive and ambition.
“When I first arrived, the goal was really to try and get into that top six,” he explained. “Then it was to try and get top four, which we did, and now it’s a case of trying to reach that latter end of the season with the play-offs and being in that final come the end of the season.
“Winning the title was obviously a great feeling for all of us and we’ve been very unlucky in the other two finals. It shows, though, that the club is moving in the right direction and that we’ve got a quality group of players here.
“There are still a few originals boys here, along with a few of us oldies as well, but below that there is a lot of quality, young players. What Rob has done very well over the years is he’s put together a great mix of youth and experience, got us all to play very well, and produced a great environment in which we can all thrive.”
