The imposing second-row forward was one of a handful of new signings brought in by the Chiefs ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Signed from Championship outfit Rotherham Titans, where he has spent the past two seasons, Salmon is relishing the opportunity that lies ahead after signing from the newly-crowned Aviva Premiership champions.

In signing Salmon, who has previously had spells with Darlington Mowden Park and Chinnor, Chiefs Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, said: “We have had a good look around and having closely analysed Toby’s game, we saw a lot of the qualities we like and think will make him thrive in the Premiership.

“We aren’t necessarily going to advertise what they are, but he has skills which we feel will transfer to the Premiership quite well. The player himself has shown a bit of self-awareness in areas to improve, so he is someone we can work with.

“It is always nice to bring people in from the Championship to fight for their place in the team and the squad and that is a very important quality for him to have. At his age, he’ll develop going forward. He has the base qualities that we look for but I can see him really thriving in the next few years.”
