達菲德-詹金斯羅布-巴克斯特說,威爾士的年輕人可以成為未來的埃克塞特隊長

俱樂部的橄欖球總監羅布-巴克斯特說,新上任的威爾士鎖匠達菲德-詹金斯有可能成為埃克塞特的長期隊長。

本月早些時候,在英超聯賽戰勝倫敦愛爾蘭隊的比賽中,詹金斯首次擔任酋長隊的隊長。

"巴克斯特告訴BBC體育:"對我來說,他看起來是有可能在未來長期擔任這一職務的人。

詹金斯在2021年夏天加入埃克塞特俱樂部後,自上賽季首次亮相以來已經為該俱樂部出場14次。

"很多事情都將取決於他,我們真正能做的是為他創造一個環境,讓他能繼續下去,"當被問及詹金斯能把他的職業生涯做到什麼程度時,巴克斯特說。

"有一點是他工作非常努力,他非常勤奮,非常專業,他非常有動力獲得成功,贏得東西,他是一個很好的角色,可以成為一個領導者,成為一個隊長。

"當我們組建球隊時,我毫不猶豫地讓他擔任隊長,是的,我們有一些更有經驗的球員在那裡。"

隨着埃克塞特的下一代有前途的年輕球員開始確立自己的地位,詹金斯與同為威爾士人的前鋒克里斯特-齊恩扎一起在今年秋天為威爾士效力。

"這證明了在招募方面所做的艱苦工作,其他人也看到了他們的比賽質量,"巴克斯特補充說。

"我們確實在正確的水平上支持年輕球員,每當我們招募任何人時,我很高興有一些信心,那就是說不要環顧球隊,看看你認為其他好球員在哪裡,因為如果我們認為你比其他人打得更好,我們會選擇你,不管誰在這裡,誰不在這裡。

"我認為這個政策對我們很有利,它對基督和達夫都很有利。

"我們總是對他們說'如果你是合適的人,我們會選擇你',我對最近加入我們的年輕黃蜂隊的小伙子們也說了同樣的話。"


Newly-capped Wales lock Dafydd Jenkins has the potential to become Exeter's captain in the long-term says the club's director of rugby Rob Baxter.

Jenkins captained the Chiefs for the first time in the Premiership win over London Irish earlier this month.

"To me he looks like the guy who could potentially have the job longer term in the future," Baxter told BBC Sport.

Jenkins has played 14 times for Exeter since his debut last season after joining the club during the summer of 2021.

"A lot of it's going to be up to him, all we can really do is create an environment for him to get on," Baxter said when asked how far Jenkins could take his career.

"The one thing is he works extremely hard, he's very diligent, very professional, he's very driven to be successful and to win things and he's a good character to be a leader and be a captain.

"I didn't have any hesitation making him captain when we put the squad together, yes we had some more experienced players in there."

Jenkins joined fellow Welsh forward Christ Tshiunza in playing for Wales this autumn as the next generation of promising young players at Exeter begin to establish themselves.

"It justifies the hard work done on recruitment that other people are seeing the quality they're playing at as well," added Baxter.

"We do back young players at the right level, whenever we do recruit anybody the one thing I'm pleased to have some confidence in is saying don't look around the squad and see where you think the other good players are, because if we think you're playing better than anybody else we'll pick you, regardless of who's here and who's not here.

"I think that policy has held us well and it's held us well with Christ and held us well with Daff.

"We've always said to them 'if you're the right guy we'll pick you', and I've said exactly the same thing to the young Wasps lads that joined us recently."
