OKEHAMPTON Rugby Club are delighted that two of their talented players have been selected to play for Exeter Chiefs’ U23s side.

Prop Johnny King and centre Rhys Palmer were due to line up for the Chiefs in a friendly against Taunton Titans at Ivybridge RFC on Tuesday.

Both players have come up through the ranks of Okehampton to the first team via the junior section and Colts’ sides.

Club secretary Dave Potter told Times Sport: ‘The club has had some success in players being picked for Devon teams this season and for Johnny and Rhys to be picked for an Exeter Chiefs’ side is a great honour not only for them but also for the club.’
