Just wondering if anyone has any links or has watched Corey Baldwin play for Exeter? Thought he looked the part last season for the Scarlets and was wondering how he’s fairing.

As far as I’ve noticed, he gets a sniff of the first team only when the internationals are away and it’s not necessarily strong opposition.

Is Tom Price still there? His name hasn’t been noticeable.

I saw Tom's name down on the team sheet a few weeks ago.

Both Price and Baldwin played last weekend against Gloucester (I think).
Corey wasn't really in the game too much and got subbed in the second half. Tom Price was pretty impressive - one of Exeter's best forwards.

Baldwin has appeared in Exeter’s match day squad twice this season. Once as an unused sub a few weeks ago, and one start last weekend when they played a second string to rest their first choice players for the Champions Cup. 

Price made a rare appearance last weekend too.

Formed a Welsh midfield with Dan John.

It's a shame that he hasn't had much game time, he has all the attributes. Hopefully he gets a little more game time in the next couple of seasons.

Bold move going to a side as strong as exeter. Game time always going to be hard to get, maybe step
Down to a side like say quins or newcastle to play every week would be a better bet for him

Or even stay with the Scarlets!!! However the way selection has continued at 12/13 this season he would probably haven't got any more time at 13.

My honest opinion RR is we would have not done any worse with Tom Rogers at 15, Conbeer at 11 & Tomi Lewis at 14. Think of the money we would save. Any recruitment made should be NWQ to mix with our young prospects. Spend our biggest bucks on coaches and a new 2nd row. Costelow must start at 10 until Rhys is fully fit.

Agreed,GPR.,and these boys need to be backed now.I suspect any new coach will notice that the emperor hasn't been wearing any clothes in mid-field,too,and will cease to favour mediocrity.

Seems Tomi had a bad knee injury, was out for season from October. Hope he comes back strong!

Exeter have announced the signing of Connacht centre Sean O’Brien for next season. 

That’s not great news for Corey Baldwin.

Tbh he took a brave move going to
A side with such a strong squad and it looks like it hasn’t come off for him. Wouldn’t shock me to see him back in wales with the dragons or ospreys in a years time. He is a good player maybe not as good as he thought he was though!

I still hope he does well. Always like seeing our academy players do well even if it’s elsewhere. 

Players usually take a while to settle in at Exeter as they’re so well drilled and have very high standards. As an aside, Exeter Chiefs website in particular their squad page is excellent. Long detailed write ups on players and in-depth up to date stats. Puts ours to shame.

Good post Sospan. I, as many on here know, championed Corey while he was with us. I do not profess to know what his situation is at Exeter but I would imagine that he will have learnt a lot from his time there. His decision to leave the Scarlets, based on our midfield selections since, was for me totally correct. On his form before he left us he would, on merit, be our starting 13.

I agree, I was very very excited to see what Corey could do for us and was disappointed he left. I would imagine Exeter is one of the best places for a young player to learn their trade.

That said I also have very high hopes for young Joe Roberts and I hope he gets a good crack at it next year.

Yeah I think i’m over the disappointment of Corey Leaving, we all thought he was the heir apparent to Foxy but its not to be. I think had he stayed in Wales he’d have been capped by now. But we have Bleddyn and Tyler Morgan, they are more than capable of getting into the Wales team in the upcoming season(s).
I’m hoping with Peel at the helm our attack will improve consistently.

Yes all points you have both made are very fair. As many have pointed out on this forum the decisions taken by both the coaches & young players have massive implications & nobody can ever claim that they get it right 100% of the time. For every Josh Adams there will be a Jordan Williams ( no disrespect to Jordan intended). Only time will tell if Corey, Osian, Harri & Jac  were the correct decisions or not. 

We, as supporters, have to trust our coaches/management to get more decisions right than they get wrong. What is certain is that there will only be one heir to Foxy & currently young Joe Roberts looks the best bet.

And of course Corey allegedly “felt “ English and Jac seems to have deemed himself an Osprey follower with his family. All a bit hard to grasp personally but it was their choice. Morgan was clearly the biggest known loss as he has already burst through with us but Baldwin was way down the success list when he decided to leave us. Can’t wait now for next season.

I’d take Corey back if he was available all that being said.
