Among the best stories in British team sport over the past decade has been the rise of Exeter Chiefs. How, exactly, did an unfashionable team from Devon emerge from obscurity to conquer the summit of English rugby? What makes them tick? What are their secrets?

Exe Men is a compelling tale of regional pride, fierce rural identity, larger-than-life local heroes, remarkable characters, epic resilience, big city snobbery, geographical separation, steepling ambition and personal sacrifice which will strike a chord with anyone who enjoys a classic underdog story.

This is not just any old rugby book, it is the inside story of how a small-town club from the edge of nowhere became every neutral’s favourite team.
