Appleby adds four more to Chiefs squad

  • +1

With the new Premier 15s season edging ever closer, Exeter Chiefs Women’s Head Coach, Susie Appleby, is continuing her squad strengthening with four more new recruits added to the mix.

Welsh quartet Meg Davies, Ffion Lewis, Abbie Fleming and Niamh Terry are the latest recruits Appleby has added to her squad.

Lewis, Fleming and Terry have all previously represented Wales Women in the Six Nations, whilst Davies is a Welsh Under-18s international.

Commenting on the new arrivals, Appleby – who has a number of other new signings to confirm in the coming days – said: “Obviously, we’re delighted to welcome all four girls to the Chiefs. With the new season drawing ever closer, I think we’re really starting to piece together the make-up of our squad.

“Ffion is a class player, whose converted from the wing to scrum-half, but is really intuitive and sharp. I think she not only brings real experience, but energy and a real understanding of how to play the game.

“Meg was captain in the Welsh junior set-up and she’s another who is a real up and coming player with a big future ahead of her. Again, she’s another scrum-half who likes to get around the field and show what she can do.

“Abbie, who can play in the second or back-row, was actually born in Exeter and she’s grown up playing in the same set-up with the likes of Lottie Holland. She’s a really hard-working forward who we think can really add something in that area.

“Finally, Niamh is a versatile back, who we know can play in lots of different positions. Having someone like that within your squad is a huge asset for any team and again we’re excited at what she can bring.”
