‘If he was here and available to play, we would register him’: Exeter are ready to throw the new boys in as coach Rob Baxter claims summer signing Jonny Gray could play this season if fixtures resume in July
- Jonny Gray is due to sign for Exeter from Glasgow in July when his contract ends
- Head coach Rob Baxter says the club will register and play him if games resume
- He said he had not been informed of any rule changes in regards to contracts
- A decision on whether the season will be completed has not yet been made
Exeter coach Rob Baxter could finish the season with a new-look team if the Premiership resumes in summer.
Standard contracts run until June 30, when many players will transfer to new clubs.
That means, for example, that Jonny Gray, due to sign from Glasgow in July, could feature for Exeter if matches resume in the summer.

‘I haven’t been informed of any potential rule change around contracts at this stage,’ Baxter told Sportsmail.
‘As things stand, most people are making the assumption that if a contract starts on July 1, then it starts on July 1.
‘If we could register Jonny Gray to play for us this season in the summer, we would. If he was here and available to play, we would register him.
‘But until firm decisions are made about the season it’s all supposition. Getting clubs financially back on track is currently a much bigger deal than whether it’s fair or not.’
