Former France international Clement Poitrenaud has committed himself to Toulouse to at least 2014.
The versatile fullback has signed a two-year contract extension with the French champions, with the option of a further two years, meaning he could stay with the club until June 2016.
Poitrenaud, who has been capped 44 times by France but was overlooked by Marc Lievremont for this year's World Cup, has been an integral part of the Toulouse line-up since first making his debut 12 years ago.
Indeed, he has played a total of 255 competitive games for the club, scoring 64 tries in the process.
