Exeter new boy Matt Kvesic says he is already feeling at home following his recent arrival at the club from Gloucester.

Kvesic relishing fresh start

Following four years at Kingsholm, the 25-year-old openside flanker has moved to the Premiership champions, agreeing a three-year deal at Sandy Park.

Coach Rob Baxter again appears to have added well to his squad after guiding the club to its first English title at Twickenham back in May.

Kvesic knows Devon well having gone to school in Tiverton and the three-time England international admits he is feeling confident about his chances of success with the Chiefs.

"I am probably a little bit more nervous than I would have been if the club had not been champions," Kvesic told the club's official website. "The environment has been really good and really positive looking ahead to the new season.

"They are at a place where they know they have still got lots to work on, but they are the sort of team that want to kick on again and do the double and also do well in Europe, so it is a great environment to be involved in, and I hope I can add as much as possible.

"It is nice for me to be involved in that sort of set-up and get back to developing myself as a player and add to the team, and aim to win the Premiership again this year, and hopefully kick on in Europe as well."
