Baxter Rob: The director of rugby at Exeter Chiefs agrees to a contract extension.

Rob Baxter, Exeter Chiefs’ director of rugby, has extended his contract.

The length of Baxter’s new contract, which he has led since 2009, has not been made public, but his previous one was set to expire in the summer of 2019.

The 51-year-old is out of the running to succeed Eddie Jones as England manager because of the new contract.

Exeter has won the European Champions Cup in 2020 and reached six Premiership finals under Baxter’s leadership, winning twice.

The Premiership team has also extended their contracts with skills coach Ricky Pellow, forwards coach Rob Hunter, and head coach Ali Hepher for an undisclosed amount of time.

Exeter can keep personality assuming stars leave – Baxter

“I have a nearby connection to the club, my family have a nearby association to the club, it works for me family-wise,” Baxter told BBC Game.

The club has lost a number of long-serving internationals as a result of salary cap cuts, and Baxter’s team missed out on the play-offs for the first time since 2015.

Luke Cowan-Dickie and Sam Simmonds, both former England and British and Irish Lions, will join Montpellier next summer.

Sam Skinner, Jonny Hill, and Tom O’Flaherty all left in the summer, and Dave Ewers and Jack Nowell are among the frontline players who have yet to commit beyond this season.

Baxter, on the other hand, says that his job right now is to shape the next Exeter team and get it back to where it was a decade ago or so.

“We have to get back on that five-year success cycle again if we can put the right combination of experienced players with the right group of young exuberance.

The full extent of the debts owed by the CBS Arena and the Wasps have been outlined in the administrators’ reports.

The unsecured £14.1 million Covid Sport Survival Package (SSP) loan administered by Sport England and administered by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) impacted taxpayers the most.

Another £7 million that was owed to His Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has not been paid back, and local taxpayers also lost money.

More than £270,000 was owed to Coventry City Council, and the council told the BBC that the majority of it—£228,152—was due to unpaid business rates.

Warwickshire County Council owed £600, Stratford District Council owed £2,868, and West Midlands Police incurred a loss of £20,570 and a loss of £1,755.

According to the reports, Derek Richardson, the former owner of the Wasps, had loans totaling approximately £16.5 million in the various Wasps businesses when they failed.

In addition to owing the government £16.1 million from their SSP loan—the largest of the combined £124 million package of loans given to all 13 Premiership clubs—and £2.1 million in unpaid taxes to HMRC, it is a greater blow to the public purse than Worcester Warriors’ demise in October.
