Bath captain Michael Lipman and prop Aaron Jarvis have signed new deals at the Recreation Ground.

Lipman, 28, has signed a three-year extension and 22-year-old Jarvis has committed himself to the West Country club for another two years.

England flanker Lipman joined the club from rivals Bristol in 2003.

He said: "Bath is a great club to be a part of at the moment. The group of guys that we have here and the coaching staff are exceptional."

Bath coach Steve Meehan said: "It is extremely pleasing that Michael will be showcasing his talent in Bath colours for at least the next three seasons.

"It is important that we build continuity and I am really pleased with the progression that he has shown, both as an exceptional flanker, but also a leader in his first season as captain at Bath."

Jarvis has played 24 times for the club and said: "I feel that Bath is a club where I can develop really well under the coaching staff and other players."
