Having started playing rugby at Bude RFC, the young prop was brought into the Exeter Chiefs Academy at the age of 14 after impressing former Academy manager Robin Cowling and assistant Rob Gibson.
As well as featuring for the club's Under-18s side, Petch's on-field development was aided during the 2017/18 season when he was put on dual-registered terms with National League Three South side, Taunton Titans.
A powerful front-row forward with a big future ahead of him, Petch signed a three-year deal with the Chiefs at the start of the 2018/19 season. He made his first-team debut the same season, coming off the bench against Harlequins in the Premiership Rugby Cup in November 2018.
Last season Petch was part of the England Under-20s squad who featured in the Six Nations Championship, as well as touring with Steve Bates' side to Argentina during the summer.
