ECSC Sponsored Players 2023/24

The ECSC is delighted to be sponsoring two of the Chiefs Men and three of Chiefs Women players this season - Jack Innard, Iestyn Harris, Brooke Bradley, Sophie Langford, and Sammie Harris.

Unfortunately, both of our men are injured and we wish them a speedy return to fitness.

Brooke Bradley is having a great season, securing the No 9 shirt, reaching 50 Chiefs caps, and getting called up into the England Training Camp. Sophie Langford is also having a good season and has been called into the England U20 Squad. New signing Sammie Harris made her debut in the Allianz Cup.

Brooke Bradley

Scrum-half Brooke Bradley joined Exeter from Worcester Warriors for the 2021/22 season.

After starting her rugby journey at 13 years of age for Exmouth RFC, Brooke represented Devon at U15 and U18 level, before moving to Bristol and then to Worcester in 2018.

Brooke's progress saw her selected for England U20s in 2017, making her debut against France, before winning further age-group caps the following season against USA and Canada.

Brooke has made her mark as the team's first-choice scrum-half. This led to her being called up to train with the senior England squad ahead of the Six Nations and her 50th Chiefs cap against Sale Sharks in February 2024. 

Away from the sport, Bradley is a physiotherapist and works at the East Devon Sports Therapy Rehabilitation & Performance Centre.

Sophie Langford

Centre Sophie started playing rugby in Hong Kong, where she joined the national performance programme at the age of 14.

In 2020, she moved to Edinburgh joining Scottish Premiership side, Heriots. She debuted for Scotland U18s at the Six Nations Festival, notably scoring the competition's fastest-ever try in only 17 seconds against Italy.Later that year, Sophie captained Scotland at the Rugby Europe 7s in Prague.

In Summer 2020, she headed to Devon, linking up with the Exeter Chiefs. She debuted in the club's opening game of the season, away to DMP Sharks in the Allianz Cup.

She is also part of the England U20s training squad and dreams of pulling on a Red Roses shirt in the future.

Sammie Harris

A Devon lass, Sammie Harris was born in Plymouth. She started playing for Ivybridge with the boys when she was eight years old before competing in track and field for several years and then coming back to rugby 18 months ago for Newton Abbot.

The speedster is happy playing at full-back or wing, and she made her debut in the Allianz Cup with season where she received plenty of local support.

Jack Innard

Young Cornishman Jack Innard only took up playing rugby after his local football team folded, but it proved a shrewd decision as he has since gone on to establish himself within the game.

Innard initially started out with Falmouth before moving on to Truro, where he became part of the Exeter Chiefs Academy system.

Having previously played at both flanker and centre in the past, Innard finally found his position in the number two jersey where he honed his trade playing Championship rugby with Cornish Pirates.

Regular game time in the Championship helped to develop Innard, who underlined his worth to the Chiefs when he scored the opening try in their Anglo-Welsh Cup Final win against Bath at Kingsholm.

Now very much part-and-parcel of the Chiefs first team ranks, Innard is regularly challenging for a spot in the match-day 23 with his all-action style and has amassed just shy of 75 appearances so far.

Iestyn Harris

The gifted hooker signed for Exeter Chiefs in April 2022 from Cardiff Rugby.

A shoulder injury meant game time for the Welsh Under 20s starlet was somewhat limited during the 2021/22 season, featuring just three times for the Arms Park-based region, the last of which was a Champions Cup start against Toulouse in December. Ultimately, he made 14 appearances for Cardiff’s Premiership team.

Although he arrived at Sandy Park with a shoulder injury, he quickly settled into life in Devon and once fully fit was able to make his Gallagher Premiership debut in a home win over Harlequins.
