Part of a golden generation of young, local talent to come through Exeter's highly-successful Academy system in recent years, the hard-running centre has established himself as a key performer within the Chiefs ranks.

Hill attended Cheriton Bishop Primary School before moving on to Queen Elizabeth's Community College in Crediton. Having played for Crediton RFC until the age of 15, Hill was honoured to gain selection for England Under-16s and moved to Ivybridge Community College where he worked under the guidance of the Chiefs Academy.

Brought into the Chiefs ranks alongside the likes of Luke Cowan-Dickie, Jack Nowell and Henry Slade, Hill was initially sent out to Championship club Cornish Pirates to help with his playing development.

He would spend two seasons down at the Pirates, occasionally returning to Sandy Park to feature in games for the Chiefs, which included his senior debut for the club in an LV= Cup clash away to Wasps in 2012.

A year later he was part of the victorious England Under-20s Junior World Championship squad in 2013, a feat which helped to really kickstart his Exeter career.

He made his Premiership debut off the bench later that year away to Northampton Saints, before going on to represent the Chiefs in a number of key fixtures, including Heineken Cup clashes against the likes of Glasgow Warriors, Cardiff Blues and RC Toulon.

Since then, Hill has not only forged himself as a first team regular with the Devon club, but he has gone on to represent England Saxons on a number of occasions, including the 2016 summer tour to South Africa.
