Japanese international Kanako Kobayashi has returned to Exeter Chiefs this season having sat out the past campaign as she battled her way back from a serious knee injury.

In her first stint in Devon, the powerful centre made 16 appearances for Chiefs, scoring four tries in the process. She was part of the team that helped lift the inaugural Allianz Cup, as well as reaching a first-ever Allianz Premier 15s final.

Back on Devon soil after playing for Japan in the WXV2 international tournament at the start of the 2023/24 season, Kobayashi has been a regular in the starting XV.
