Naqelevuki extends exeter deal

Fiji international Sireli Naqelevuki has agreed a new contract with Aviva Premiership club Exeter.

The Chiefs announced today that he has signed a two-year deal.

Centre Naqelevuki, 32, joined Exeter from South African Super Rugby side the Stormers in 2010 and has made nearly 50 first-team appearances.

“He has been an exceptional player for us during our time in the Premiership, creating some fantastic moments and scoring tries that a majority of our supporters will never forget,” Exeter head coach Rob Baxter said.

“Seeing the big guy running in with a big grin on his face and dotting down tries is great, but aside from that he has also been a great member of the squad.

“He’s had a few little niggles with his knees this year – and we’ve kind of kept him ticking along – but now the time has come for him to go in for a bit of a refurb this summer and we are hoping to see him absolutely flying at the start of next season.”
