Dave Ewers has been part and parcel of the Exeter Chiefs mix for over ten years, but the African-born forward will be extending his stay a little longer after he became the latest member of Rob Baxter’s squad to commit their future to the Devon club, writes Mark Stevens.
Tension was audible on Saturday as Honiton hosted local rivals Cullompton for a crunch rearranged game. Both sides sat one point apart in 12th and 13th spot in the 14 team league so there was a lot at stake. The rain had somehow held off for a few hours but obviously conditions were sticky and there was a strong wind blowing up the park to make it tricky all round. Honiton lost badly when playing away to them so it was a tough ask.
