Mitch Lees extends Chiefs contract

Exeter Chiefs forward Mitch Lees has signed a new deal which will keep him with the Premiership club until 2017. Australian second row or back row Lees signed for Exeter from Championship side London Welsh in April 2014. The 26-year-old made 24 appearances last season, as Chiefs narrowly missed out on a Premiership play-off spot. Chiefs Head Coach Rob Baxter said “We feel there is still a lot of development in him and we have only scratched the surface with him. He has not been in a professional training environment for very long, but he is obviously a big guy and he is a very good rugby player. He had a very good first season for us, so we moved very early to extend his contract for the next two years.”
