Exeter Chiefs have been buoyed by news Richard Baxter and Neil Clark have become the latest players to commit their futures to the club.
The duo have both been key members of the Exeter pack over the years - and have been rewarded with new two-year deals.
Baxter, who is the younger brother of coach Rob, has made a record 367 appearances for the club, while Clark is closing in on 150 outings.
Richard Baxter said: "I feel okay at the moment, my body feels good, so it would be nice to carry on being a part of Exeter in the Premiership.
"We've got to push on in the second half of the season and it would be great to be a part of that.
"It was great to be a part of the side that got up into the Premiership and it would be great to be a part of the side in this league for the next couple of years."
Clark added: "In the end it was an easy decision to make. We've been talking for a while about things, but as I said it didn't take too much to persuade me to stay. It was just a case of dotting the I's and crossing the T's."
