Exeter Chiefs' Jason Shoemark has been hailed as "fantastic servant" of the club after he announced he would leave Sandy Park at the end of the season.

Shoemark, 33, is expected to move back to his native New Zealand and former club Hawke's Bay. He joined Exeter in 2010 from Super Rugby's Highlanders.

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter said: "Shoey has been an absolutely fantastic servant to the club and has done so much that's good for us.

"When we came into the Premiership, he was someone we thought could give us that extra something special in midfield, both in attack and defence. He has had a very positive impact on us and how we have been as a Premiership side and a Heineken Cup side.

"It is always a shame when a guy who buys into the club as much as he has eventually moves on, but he has had an absolutely fantastic career at Exeter. All the staff and players will all join me in saying thank you very much to him for all he has done for us.

"There are still three important games left this season and I'm sure Shoey will play an key part in what's coming."
