Exeter Chiefs have announced the signing of Munster Academy and Shannon flanker Eoghan Grace.

The 22-year-old was part of the Ireland U20s Grand Slam-winning squad in 2007 and has also worn the green shirt for Ireland’s sevens side.

Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter said: “Eoghan is a player who I have been following now for quite some time.

“He has played some big games for Shannon and probably feels unlucky not to have progressed further in the Munster set-up.

“Eoghan came over to join in with some of our pre season testing and showed up well; not many forwards beat Tom Johnson over 40 metres and 100 metres.

He added: “He showed up well in the conditioned games we played and although he is not a household name, I think he may be a name for the future.

“We have real strength in the back-row where I am going to challenge our players to go out and attack games in the Premiership and Eoghan only adds to that strength.”
