Chiefs create recipe for success

Members of the Exeter Chiefs’ squad made a triumphant return to local drinks manufacturer and club sponsor Frobishers, to take part in an ‘Apprentice’ meets ‘Dragons Den’ style challenge.

The players were asked to develop, create and market their very own juice based drink and then present their creations to members of the Frobishers board.

The day was organised as part of the RPA Player Development Programme (PDP) which aims to individually assist players in their personal and professional development, helping them to identify potential post-rugby careers and provide them with the skills needed to make a smooth transition into life after rugby.

Exeter and England back-row, Tom Johnson, said: "We’ve had a really good day here at Frobishers and have been extremely well looked after. There is an amazing connection between the Chiefs, Frobishers and The RPA and it’s great to see all the players participate and work together as a team.

"I would also like to personally thank our RPA Player Development Manager, Josh Frape, for organising today’s event. Josh is very good in what he does, not just from today, but he makes it his goal to drive a lot of schemes at the club and help guys meet some really good contacts and find suitable work experience."

John Breading, Senior National Account Manager for Frobishers, said: "This is the second year we have held this event and we think it’s brilliant because it gives the guys the opportunity to try something different.

"At Frobishers we cherish our friendship with The RPA and we are one of the main sponsors of Exeter Chiefs, therefore the whole event was a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved to continue to form a formidable partnership."

Josh Frape, RPA Player Development Manager for Exeter Chiefs, said: "After the success of last year we thought it was the perfect time to come back and test the guys on their team-work, ability to think outside of the box and produce something they would be proud of.

"Frobishers have been hugely supportive of the Player Development Programme and The RPA and once again provided this incredible opportunity for players to come in and test their hand at making juice."

Frobishers was founded in 1992 and sets out to provide their customers with the finest natural fruit drinks in the world. They are committed to making sure that 100% of the juices used in their drinks are from the best fruits and sourced from the most dedicated farmers across the globe.

The players in attendance included Max Bodilly, Phil Dollman, Tom Hendrickson, Jack Innard, Tom Johnson, Laurence May, Jack Oulton, Carl Rimmer, Brett Sturgess, Stuart Townsend and Jack Yeandle
