The Australian half-back was one of five new signings brought to the Chiefs by Exeter’s Director of Rugby Rob Baxter during the summer of 2017.

Signed initially in 2008 by the Brumbies, he represented Australia at the 2009 Under-20s Junior World Cup in Japan where Australia made the semi-finals and again represented Australia U20s in the 2010 JWC in Argentina where they were beaten in the final by rivals New Zealand.

Having played club rugby for both Queanbeyan and Eastwood, he made his Super Rugby debut for the Brumbies against the Reds in 2011.

White quickly forged himself as a regular within the Brumbies ranks, skippering the side at the age of 23 for the first time, before featuring in their side that lost the Super Rugby final to the Waikato Chiefs in Hamilton in 2013.

Further semi-final appearances followed for the club over the next two seasons, while White was the leading Australian player for try assists in Super Rugby in both the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

He made his debut for the Wallabies against Argentina in Perth in 2013 and has since gone on to win 22 international caps, scoring 18 points in the process. Ten of those points came in 2015 against the All Blacks in Sydney, where he kicked a superb 50-metre penalty, scored a brilliant individual try and then converted it for a personal tally of ten points in the 27-19 victory.

In July 2015, White moved away from his homeland to join French club Montpellier, whom he helped to win the European Challenge Cup trophy in his first season. He featured 39 times in all competitions for the Top 14 side, scoring four tries in the process.

Now, he is looking to bring his undoubted talents to that of the Premiership, proving the crucial link between forwards and back at the reigning English champions.
