Press Association logoPress Association 16/03/2017

Exeter have announced the signing of Australia international scrum-half Nic White.

White, who has won 22 caps for the Wallabies, will move to the Aviva Premiership outfit from French Top 14 club Montpellier in a two-year deal.

Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter said: "I just think when a player of Nic's quality becomes available - and he shows an interest in coming to the club - you have to act quickly.

"If you look at how he has played, not just at Super Rugby and international level, but also more recently over in France with Montpellier, to me he is exactly the kind of signing you want to bring to the club.

"I have no doubt he will add great competition to the scrum-halves we have already at the club, but he will also be great for the young players to learn from as well.

"He will add a real sense of direction and game understanding to us, which I know is going to be important moving forward."
