Exeter man extends Sixways stay

Rob George 23rd Mar, 2021

WARRIORS have extended the loan spell of Exeter Chiefs tighthead prop Maks van Dyk for a second week.

The experienced van Dyk made his debut as a second half replacement against Bath Rugby at The Rec on Saturday and helped to set up Ethan Waller’s bonus point try.

With three tightheads – Nick Schonert (neck), Richard Palframan (knee) and Conor Carey – who has been ruled out for the remainder of the season by a bicep injury, still on the sidelines, Warriors have decided to extend van Dyk’s loan to cover the Gallagher Premiership match against Northampton Saints at Sixways on Saturday (3pm).

Van Dyk, 29, played for Sharks, Cheetahs and Griquas in his native South Africa, had a spell on loan at Leinster, four seasons with Toulouse and a stint with Harlequins before he joined Exeter for this season.
