Premiership leaders London Irish have agreed new contracts with three of their forward pack.
Prop Faan Rautenbach, lock Kieran Roche and flanker Declan Danaher have all put pen to paper on new deals to further bolster the high-flying Exiles. Former South Africa international Rautenbach has signed for two years, while Danaher and Roche will stay with the club for three more years.
"The re-signing of all three players is integral to the future success of the team," Exiles head coach Toby Booth said. "It is vital to our progress that key individuals stay at the club."
