One of six new faces brought to the Chiefs during the summer of 2013, Greg has quickly settled into life with Exeter having joined from relegated London Welsh.
A former product of the Harlequins Academy system, Bateman initially cut his teeth in senior rugby with Dorking, before then moving onto the Exiles.
Predominantly a hooker, Bateman’s all-round strength in the front-row also allows him to double up as a prop if needed – and that was demonstrated last season for Welsh, where he amassed 38 appearance in two years with the Londonders.
Bateman is also a former England Under-18 international.
