Irish captain second row Nichola Fryday arrived at Exeter Chiefs following the Autumn Internationals. 

Having made her international debut in 2016 against Canada, she has gone on to win 22 caps for her country.

Fryday started playing rugby at 19 whilst studying at university and made a big impression, being selected to play for Connacht interprovincial side in 2016, before making her international debut later that year.

Away from the sport, Fryday comes from a farming background and studied Food and Agricultural Business Management.

A hard hitting and abrasive second row, Fryday has made an immediate impact for Appleby's side and was named as Ireland captain ahead of the 2022 TikTok Six Nations, leading her side to a fourth place finish.
