Bath Rugby to sign Chudley from Exeter Chiefs at the end of the season

20 March 2018

Bath Rugby is delighted to confirm the signing of Exeter Chiefs’ Will Chudley, who will join the Club ahead of the 2018/19 season.

The scrum-half has made over 115 appearances for the reigning Aviva Premiership champions since his arrival from Newcastle Falcons in 2012, scoring 15 tries.  

The 29-year-old said: “I’m really looking forward to joining Bath next season – it’s a new challenge for me, and one that I’m really looking forward to. Having spoken to Todd, I know how ambitious the Club is, which is one of the main factors behind my decision.

“I’m fortunate to have won the (Aviva) Premiership with Exeter, and with the world-class talent in Bath’s ranks, I’m confident that we can put ourselves in contention for silverware over the next couple of seasons.”

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, said: “Will is a player who I’m really looking forward to working with. He has that winning mentality having played a key role in Exeter’s success over the last few years, and that’s something which will only benefit the Club moving forwards.

“He’s a player with real quality and has shown what a valuable player he is during his six years down at Sandy Park. I have no doubt that he will become an instant hit with the supporters when he arrives in the summer for the new season.”
