David Ewers

1st Nov 1990 1.93m/115kg Blindside Flanker

Born in the Zimbabwean capital of Harare, Ewers is a powerful ball carrying back-row forward who plays primarily at the back of the scrum at number 8.

A destructive ball carrying, and exceptional defensive capabilities, Ewers graduated from Ivybridge Community College and was signed up with Exeter Chiefs in the summer of 2010.

His debut came later that year in the British and Irish Cup against Newport.

Ewers was selected for the England squad to face the Barbarians in the summer of 2014. In February 2016 he was called up to England's 2016 Six Nations squad.

Ewers helped Exeter Chiefs win the 2016/17 Premiership title and has continued to be a vital cog in the Exeter pack.

In March 2018, he put pen to paper on new two-year deal that will keep him at Sandy Park until at least 2020.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Ewers has had 24 European Cups appearances scoring 5 tries and 25 points.
