Exeter Chiefs captain Jack Yeandle has signed a new contract which will keep him at Sandy Park until 2018.
The 25-year-old hooker's previous deal ran out next summer, but has been extended by a further two years.
"The new deal was a very easy decision. This is home for me, it means a lot to play here and it is a great club to be at," Yeandle told the club website.
"It's always niggling away when your contract is up, so now it's another thing I don't have to worry about."
Exeter start their campaign at last season's runners-up Bath on Saturday.
