Bath have confirmed scrum-half Michael Claassens has agreed a new two-year deal to remain at the club.

The South Africa international joined Bath from the Cheetahs in 2007 and went on to skipper the side last season.

And Claassens admits he believes the club has a bright future.

"I am very excited about the future of Bath Rugby, and want to be a part of all the developments going on here," he told the club's official site.

"Me and my wife love Bath, both the club and the city, and are really looking forward to staying."

Bath head coach Steve Meehan is thrilled that the 28-year-old has agreed to extend his stay.

Meehan added: "We are extremely happy that Michael has decided to extend his contract with the club for another two years.

"He is a quality bloke, completely professional, hard working and one of the most honest players you'll come across. He is a great example to all the players."
