Cornishman Nowell is a product of the club’s excellent Academy system having moved up to Sandy Park from Truro College.
A full-back by trade, Nowell was promoted into the Chiefs first team ranks midway through the 2012/13 season to play on the wing and he has now looked back since.
A brilliant first season in the Aviva Premiership not only saw Nowell nominated for the RPA Young Player of the Year award, but he was also crowned the LV= Cup Breakthrough Player of the Year after some notable displays against London Welsh, Bath, Ospreys and Northampton Saints.
His classy attacking skills make him a key weapon in the Chiefs arsenal, whilst his growing maturity has been rewarded with a call-up into the England Saxons EPS squad for the new campaign.
Having helped England’s Under-20s squad to lift the Six Nations earlier in the year, he was then one of five Exeter players who helped the Under-20s to lift the Junior World Championship in France, scoring a try in the final win over Wales.
