According to manager Rob Baxter, the situation across the channel is clear: the helmeted winger will not be with the leaders in the 2023-2024 edition of the Premiership. “I should expect that Jack Nowell will not be there, as the situation is, He declared. We had a deal: if he changed the profile I wanted, we would sign him. Jack knows this. He is currently exploring the possibilities available to him. If he gets back to me before signing someone, we can talk. On the other hand, if he returns after we sign someone else, there’s no room for maneuver on the salary cap and he can’t stay. It’s a very open scene.”

Jack Nowell, who has scored three tries this season in a Chiefs jersey, was not included in Steve Borthwick’s England squad for the 6 Nations. He recently played three matches of the Autumn Nations Cup with XV de la Rose last November.
