The leader of Devon County Council, John Hart, said:

“I want to send my heartfelt congratulations to the Exeter Rugby on becoming European champions.

“Exeter Rugby are rooted in Devon from Tony Rowe and Rob Baxter through to so many of their influential players including skipper Joe Simmonds and the new European Player of the Year, Sam Simmonds.

“I’m sure most of Devon were riveted to our televisions from the first minute to the last for what was a thrilling contest. Now we must hope that the team can do the double this weekend and crown a glittering season.

“At a time when we are all beset by Covid-19, their success has been one of the few, true high spots of the year and I want to congratulate everyone associated with the club.”
