Meanwhile, junior section coaches have joined forces with the club coaches Kevin Booth and Mark Priest for joint Super Saturday training sessions.
The young players will be joined by some of the Chiefs players with Jono Mock, James Buckland and Sam Olde keen to be involved.
The next Super Saturday is at the ground on March 9, starting at 12.30pm.
“The junior section is vital for the survival and future of the club and hopefully it will be a good fun day for all the club young and old,” said youth coach Jamie Craner.
