Chiefs injury list grows

Exeter forward Dave Dennis will miss the entire 2017 season after injuring his bicep in training in a major blow for the Premiership champions.

The 31-year-old Australian in his second season with the Chiefs was in good form, having scored a try in the win against Wasps last month.

"He's got a relatively serious injury, he's had an operation. He's likely to be out for 10-12 weeks," Exeter boss Rob Baxter told BBC Radio Devon.

Dennis joins a large list of Exeter players affected by injuries this season.

England and British and Irish Lions winger Jack Nowell is out with a  broken cheekbone, while fellow England internationals Ollie Devoto and Luke Cowan-Dickie are also sidelined.

Dave Ewers, Sam Hill and Italy's Michele Campagnaro are also out of action for the Chiefs.
