New contract: Leicester prop Logovi'i Mulipola
Leicester Tigers prop Logovi'I Mulipola has signed a new long-term contract with the Aviva Premiership champions.
The Samoa international has made over 40 appearances since joining the club after the 2011 World Cup and featured in last weekend's Premiership final victory over Northampton Saints.
Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: "Logo made a big impact when he first came here and he has continued to work on his game and improve in a very strong group of props.
"Having the likes of Marcos Ayerza, Dan Cole, Martin Castrogiovanni and Boris Stankovich around him has helped him enormously and now he is firmly established in our senior squad.
"With Jerome Schuster coming into the group for the new season too, there is a good pool of players working together and getting better.
"Logo is very keen to learn his trade, he wants to improve and as a prop he still has a long career ahead of him."
Mulipola won the Pacific Nations Cup with Samoa in 2012 and the 26-year-old could add to his 10 Test caps during next month's four-team tournament in South Africa.
Leicester have agreed confirmed new deals with 12 senior players, including Matthew Tait, Ben and Tom Youngs and Manu Tuilagi.
