Exeter Chiefs' James Phillips in Plymouth Albion loan
Exeter Chiefs back-rower James Phillips could turn out for Championship outfit Plymouth Albion after agreeing a loan deal.
The 25-year-old has not played since suffering a serious knee injury against Saracens in September, but is now fit to return to action.
Sandy Park head coach Rob Baxter revealed the club sorted out a loan deal with Plymouth before the Championship deadline and the former Bristol No. 8 could make his Albion debut at London Scottish this weekend.
Baxter said: "James Phillips is pretty much there now having been out for a long time and we may get him some game time away from the club.

"We completed a loan deal with Plymouth for him before the deadline and he's been down there training with them this week, so there is a possibility he may get some game time down the line if they want him to play.
"The key thing is he's close to playing again, so that's fantastic. With any long-term injury it's always great to see the player back playing again."
However, Baxter has also admitted that winger Gonzalo Camacho may leave Sandy Park when his contract expires this summer. His international commitments with Argentina - which mean he would not be available for his club before October - are thought to be a factor.
