Exeter have signed the Australia utility forward Dean Mumm on a two-year deal. The 28-year-old, who has 33 caps and can play in the second and back rows, will leave the New South Wales Waratahs at the end of the current Super 15 season.

The Chiefs' head coach, Rob Baxter, said: "He's a very good signing for us and a very good player. We've been watching him since the start of the season and not only is he a back-five forward coming into his physical prime, he's also vastly experienced and a good leader. We believe he has got a lot of ingredients that we want him to bring to the club.

"Personally, I think it's a great credit to what the players have achieved this season – and where we are as a club – that a guy of that standing wants to come and play his rugby here in Exeter."
