London Irish hooker David Paice has agreed a new deal to remain at the club for a further three seasons.
The Australian-born Paice initially joined the club's academy in 2003, helping the U19s to the National Cup.
Paice, who was capped by England in 2008, has gone on to make 136 appearances for the Exiles and become a key member of the pack.
And Paice said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at London Irish and I am sure I will continue to do so.
"We have a squad full of class players and I want to be with them challenging for titles over the coming seasons."
Irish head coach Toby Booth added: "I have worked very closely with David since he first joined us in 2003.
"He is an accomplished lineout thrower and is great in the loose. We are all delighted that he will be with us for a further three seasons."
