Exeter Chiefs have re-signed Australia back Lori Cramer and United States prop Charli Jacoby for the forthcoming Premiership Women's Rugby season.

The pair both spent time last season at Queensland Reds having played for Exeter in the 2022-23 season.

Cramer, 31, joined Chiefs in 2022 but returned to her homeland midway through last season to play for Reds.

She scored three tries in 19 games for Exeter after making her debut in December 2022.

Jacoby, 34, played 16 times for Exeter after joining from Darlington Mowden Park in 2022.

She has won 28 caps for the USA and played at the last World Cup.

“It was always the plan for Lori to head home for a bit last season, and it was always my intention to bring her back," Exeter head coach Susie Appleby told the club website.

"Lori is an excellent rugby player, outstanding at both international and club level. She is also a real character and a firm favourite with the fans.

“Charli brings such value to our squad. She has an amazing ‘team first’ attitude, she’s a very powerful player and she has infectious energy."
