Scotland captain Jason White and hooker Sebastian Bruno have both signed new deals with Guinness Premiership leaders Sale Sharks.
The announcement was made on the official Sale website and follows on from last week's news that Sebastian Chabal and Magnus Lund agreed contract extensions with the club.
White's new agreement will see him remain at Edgeley Park until 2009, while Bruno has committed himself through to 2008.
Coach Philippe St Andre said: "These are massive signings for our club. Jason White (pictured) is 27-years-old, captain of his country and our pack leader.
"The next three years will see him at his absolute peak as an athlete, and we will see an even better player than we have since he joined the club in 2003.
"Our first choice back row of White, Chabal and Lund have all committed themselves to Sale Sharks long term and we can now look forward to them growing individually as well as collectively which will be a frightening prospect for opposing teams."
St Andre continued: "Sebastian Bruno has just got better and better. He is now first choice for his country (France) and a vital member of the team here at Sale."
The Sharks currently hold top position both in the Guinness Premiership and in their Heineken Cup Pool One.
