Brought to Sandy Park ahead of the 2018/19 season, Alex Cuthbert joined the Chiefs after seven years playing in the Welsh capital with Cardiff Blues.

Cuthbert first played rugby during his years studying at Newent Community School playing club rugby for Hucclecote RFC and Westbury-on-Severn RFC, before later moving to Hartpury College where he lined-up in a team that included Jonny May on the opposite wing.

After leaving Hartpury, Cuthbert moved to study at UWIC, where he played for both the college and Cardiff RFC, before in 2011 he came to the wider attention of the Cardiff Blues, who moved swiftly to add him to their ranks.

Cuthbert quickly made a name for himself for the Blues and was called into the Welsh squad, where he scored the decisive try in Wales' 2012 Grand Slam-clinching win over France.

A year later, the powerful wing struck again as Wales thrashed England to seal the 2013 Six Nations title - and that summer another of his tries helped the British and Irish Lions beat Australia.

Cuthbert continued to rack up numerous Test caps - he is currently on 47 - but his decision to leave the Blues and move to the Chiefs effectively meant his international aspirations were put on hold.

Although untimely injuries have hampered Cuthbert's career at Sandy Park, he remains a lethal weapon to have in Exeter's attacking arsenal with his strong-running, deceptive turn of speed, together with his proven finishing skills.
