HONOURS: England Students
The Devon-born hooker is now into his second season with the Exeter Chiefs having signed from Championship side Doncaster Knights in the summer of 2012.
A competitive and strong force within the front-row, Yeandle made the most of injuries to his counterparts to firm establish himself as a key performer during Exeter’s second half of the 2012/13 season.
Such was the impressive form shown by the former UWIC student during that period that Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter rewarded the player with a new two-year contract.
Having grown up in Crediton, Yeandle spoke of his delight after making his top flight debut against London Welsh, a game in which he also claimed a try in a 47-16 victory.
