Exeter Chiefs boss Rob Baxter has confirmed James Hanks and James Scaysbrook have agreed new deals to remain at Sandy Park.

Hanks and Scaysbrook follow Tom Johnson, Gareth Steenson, Brett Sturgess and Haydn Thomas in extending their contracts by two years.

The duo played keys roles in Exeter's promotion to the Aviva Premiership last season and continued to impress during the current campaign.

And Baxter is delighted to see so many of his senior players commit to the Chiefs.

"These are guys who, like some other guys who have signed, have been key for us in our rise into the Premiership and the way we have started this season," said Baxter.

"They embody the hard work, ethic and culture we like at the club. I think it's very important you have that as the core of what you're about first and then you try to add to it.

"What's very important to me is that we get a core of players here signed and then when we bring anything in there's a culture set in place those players can add to and feel part of."
