For years it was father Andy who was making all the headlines at Exeter Rugby Club, but these days it’s son Jack who is making big waves at the Chiefs.
The highly-rated scrum-half has come through the Academy ranks at the club to that of a fully-fledged England international.
Having been given brief exposure to the first team ranks during the 2015/16 season, it was the following season that Maunder came of age, producing a string of high class performances for the Devon club.
Initially starting the campaign on dual-registered terms down at Plymouth Albion, his recall to Sandy Park following injuries to Will Chudley and Dave Lewis, meant he was literally thrown in at the deep end by head coach Rob Baxter.
Such is Maunder’s talent, however, he flourished immediately, making his first team debut against a star-studded ASM Clermont Auvergne in the European Champions Cup in October 2016. Undaunted by the challenge put in front of him, Maunder would not only finish the season as a Premiership champion, but he was one of five Exeter players selected by England head coach Eddie Jones to tour Argentina.
And it was during the First Test in Santa Fe that Maunder appeared off the bench, helping to create a winning try, that he won his first international cap.
The following year, Maunder - who was combining studies at the University of Exeter with playing - found himself behind Nic White for much of the season, but he was still able to provide worthy back-up to the Australian in the No.9 jersey.
However, White's departure last season saw Maunder elevated back to the club's first-choice scrum-half - where he didn't disappoint, starting in both finals as the Chiefs won both the Gallagher Premiership and Heineken Champions Cup titles.
His on-field form also saw him drafted back into the England training squad for their Six Nations campaign, albeit he did not feature in the competition.
