A product of the Exeter Chiefs Academy set-up, Danny Southworth began playing rugby at an early age for his hometown club, Barnstaple RFC.

He would work his way up through the age groups with Barum, before continuing his rugby development at Ivybridge Community College, where he would regularly feature alongside fellow Chiefs Alfie Petch, Max Norey and Rusi Tuima.

The Chiefs liked what they saw of the ambitious loosehead, who was offered an initial rugby apprenticeship before moving onto a senior academy contract.

Since being with the Chiefs, Southworth has garnered game time with Chinnor and Plymouth Albion in National League One as well as a loan period with RFU Championship side, Coventry.

He has featured for the Chiefs first team in the Premiership Rugby Cup and also the Gallagher Premiership, where he capped his maiden appearance with a try in an away game against Wasps in October 2020.
