Exeter Chiefs back row Aidon Davis has agreed a move to Toyota Cheetahs for the 2024/25 season.

The South African forward will re-join the Bloemfontein side whom he originally signed for Chiefs from ahead of the 2022/23 season. In two seasons in Devon, Davis accumulated 25 appearances and four tries.

Davis has experienced some great victories in a Chiefs shirt, most notably playing in the Premiership Cup final win over London Irish just last season. Debuting against Bath Rugby in that same competition, Davis went on to feature in Chiefs’ Gallagher Premiership and Investec Champions Cup campaigns as well.

Chiefs will always evoke fond memories for Davis though he looks forward to his next challenge.

“I had watched the Chiefs for quite a while before I signed for them, and I’ve loved my taste of playing rugby in England. I’ve challenged myself in some of the top competitions in the world – the Gallagher Premiership and the Champions Cup – which has been a fantastic experience.

“I’ve made some great friends amongst my Chiefs teammates and their support recently has been invaluable. It’s been great fun to play for Exeter but I’m now really looking forward to heading home to South Africa and getting stuck back in with the Cheetahs.”

Starting next season, Davis will look to add the experience he has built up in the northern hemisphere and bring an added value to the Toyota Cheetahs.

The club would like to thank Aidon for his time as an Exeter Chief and wish him well for the future.
