Bath flanker Mat Gilbert and centre Dan Hipkiss have both extended their contracts with the Aviva Premiership club.

Gilbert, who is Britain's only deaf professional rugby player, has been an instant success since signing in November and is delighted to be staying at the Recreation Ground.

"Coming to Bath has been a revelation for me," he said. "I wanted to test myself in the best environment and I feel that is here. I feel proud to have played for Bath and very excited that I will continue to do so."

Hipkiss, a member of England's 2007 World Cup squad, joined Bath from Leicester in 2011.

The 30-year-old has endured a frustrating season following a series of injuries but is looking forward to the future at part of Gary Gold's side.

Hipkiss said: "I am over the moon to have re-signed here at Bath. I love the Club and the environment, and I could now not see myself being anywhere else. I still feel I have a point to prove, and that this is the place to prove it."

Gold added: "Mat is a special individual. He is unbelievably committed both to the team and to self-improvement. I feel proud to have him at Bath.

"And Danny is exactly the sort of professional we want around here. His work ethic is relentless and he takes no prisoners in training."
