Exeter Chiefs duo Foster and Naqelevuki pen new deals

Exeter

Exeter Chiefs backs Mark Foster and Sireli Naqelevuki have become the latest players to sign new two-year contracts with the club.

The deals bring the total number of players who have signed new terms for the Premiership side side to 18.

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter told the club website: "Both of them are very good characters.

"The key to tying them both down for the next couple of years is that I feel very comfortable working with them."

It's a hard working club, everyone is friendly and there's a good vibe in the team

Foster, 27, is currently sidelined with a broken leg, but has been influential in Chiefs' recent success with 17 tries in 47 appearances.

"It's probably the happiest I've ever been in my rugby career," said Foster.

"I am at a place where I feel really valued, there's a fantastic set of players and a really good management staff coupled with a great set of supporters."

Fijian international Naqelevuki, who joined the Sandy Park club in October 2010, said: "I'm happy to have signed for the club again.

"It's a hard working club, everyone is friendly and there's a good vibe in the team."

Chiefs took a giant stride towards Premiership safety last weekend with a 20-6 victory over Harlequins.

The Devon club face Newcastle Falcons on Friday at Kingston Park.
