The Simmonds brothers had the whole of Teignmouth RFC toasting them on Saturday night - and helped the club make £1,500 behind the bar after Exeter's sensational European Cup win.

Captain Joe, 23, lifted the continental trophy just six years after secretly running out for his home club's first team.

And Sam, 25, is now European Player of the Year having started his rugby down on the Devon coast too.

The pair's exploits at Ashton Gate had all at Bitton Park roaring and chairman Russell Sowden spoke of his pride in the Teignmouth tyros.

'We were at our maximum capacity with all the COVID controls, so had 55 people in the clubhouse, and it was absolutely manic,' said Sowden.

'We managed to take £1,500 over the bar on Saturday, which helps in these times. Unfortunately we had to kick everyone out at 10pm, but we will have a proper celebration with them soon!

'Some of the boys who know him well put a load of posters up of Sam and Joe together in different eras, and one of them with their dad, David, down at the club.
