Joe Simmonds MBE
2020 was a year to remember for Exeter Chiefs star Joe Simmonds. Joe became the youngest player to captain a side to victory in both the Heineken Champions Cup and the Premiership, as Exeter overcame Racing 92 and Wasps to become only the fourth English side to win the double.
The accolades did not cease either as his incredible year was capped off in style, receiving an MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List.
Joe and his Exeter side will be hoping to repeat the feat and retain their titles in 2021.
Many congratulations, Joe!
