Exeter head coach Rob Baxter has handed new contracts to three of their promising youngsters.

England U20s internationals Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Sam Hill have all agreed two-year contracts to stay at the Sandy Park club.

Full-back Nowell made his Aviva Premiership debut in the 27-23 win at London Irish last month, and fellow 19-year-olds Hill and Slade started both LV= Cup matches against London Welsh and the Ospreys.

All three came through the club's academy and have also played out on loan in the Championship with Plymouth and the Cornish Pirates.

Baxter said: "We're big believers in our academy system and the quality that's coming through there.

"We're also big believers in these guys as individuals. They've all shown good qualities over the last year or so, particularly in the Championship playing for Plymouth and the Cornish Pirates.

"It's a really nice boost to know they're around for the next couple of years and we can work closely with them to help them develop into Premiership players."
