Baxter set to break Chiefs record

Richie Baxter
Baxter says he has been fortunate with injuries during his career

Exeter Chiefs captain Richie Baxter is set to break the club's all-time appearance record on Saturday.

Baxter will play his 276th match for the Chiefs when he faces Plymouth Albion, breaking the previous mark held by his brother Rob.

"I'm proud to have played so many times for Exeter so it's nice to get that record," Baxter told BBC Devon.

"Touch wood I've been fairly lucky with injuries which is a downfall for a lot of players."

Baxter made his debut for the Chiefs against Fylde in October 1997.
