Making Yards at Exeter Chiefs
The 2017 Premiership Rugby Champions Exeter Chiefs are gearing up for the 2018 Premiership Final against Saracens at Twickenham on Saturday 26th May. The club took time to allow a group of Year 9 students from our Academy to work with them on a new initiative called Making Yards. Making Yards involved the group of Paignton Academy Rugby players visiting the Premiership ground each week, watching the Exeter Chiefs team train and working through Rugby and team work activities to focus on how to emulate the control, attitude, belief and success of the premiership champions. Exeter Chiefs team contains a whole host of England internationals, such a Henry Slade, Harry Williams, Sam Simmons and Alec Hepburn, including British Lion Jack Nowell.
