My special team can become premier club in world rugby: Rowe of Exeter Chiefs
LONDON (UK) – Tony Rowe, chairman of Exeter Chiefs, said his “special” team has the potential to establish themselves as the premier club in world rugby as they have become the fourth English team to clinch the Premiership and European Champions Cup double.
After trouncing Wasps in the Premiership final on Saturday, Exeter joined Saracens, Wasps and Leicester as double winners. This comes a week after winning the European Champions Cup by routing French side Racing 92.
“I told them they’re a very special bunch of guys,” the Daily Mail quoted Rowe as saying.
“Usually in a squad which has done what we’ve done, you have old heads — but our old heads are actually young men.
“That squad has another three or four years before you’d think they’re old, and they’re getting better.
“Now we need to establish ourselves as the premier club. I want it to be the premier club in the world and we can do that,” Rowe added.
“We’ve got ambitious guys there.”
