Flanker Francois Louw has signed a new long-term contract with Bath.
A South Africa international with 19 caps, Louw has been with the Rec outfit since 2011 and has made 32 appearances in all competitions.
"Flo is truly a world class player, and the fact that he was so keen to stay with us says great things about what we are working to create here," said director of rugby Gary Gold.
"He could have chosen his club, and he chose to stay with us."
Louw added: "I love playing at Bath and absolutely believe in where we're going, so signing a new deal was a no-brainer for me. I'm just happy it's all sorted so I can get back to work."
