Born and raised in Cornwall, the young forward was always destined to take up rugby, following in the footsteps of his father Richard, the former Redruth and Cornwall prop.

However, Keast’s career really started to take off when he joined Truro College. Under the tutelage of the coaching staff at Exeter’s Academy base in the Duchy, he reached another level and that’s when the Chiefs moved to sign him.

Since then the Premiership outfit have worked hard on developing Keast as an upcoming prop within the modern-day game. Not only has he gone onto achieve international recognition with England at various age groups, but he has figured prominently for both Redruth, Plymouth Albion and the Cornish Pirates in the National Leagues.

Keast made his Chiefs debut in an Anglo-Welsh Cup clash away to Harlequins in 2016 and was part of their Anglo-Welsh Cup winning side, which defeated Bath 28-11 at Kingsholm in March 2018.

Such has been his development in recent times, the Truro-born youngster has worked his way into Rob Baxter's Premiership plans, making his league debut for the club in their last-gasp win away to Bristol Bears in November 2018.
