Gareth Steenson has signed a new two-year contract to remain at Exeter.
The club's record points scorer will stay with the reigning Aviva Premiership champions until the end of the 2019/20 season.

"Obviously I'm very pleased and I'm really enjoying my rugby here," Steenson told the club's website. "To sign the new deal is very exciting for both me and my family.

England's women are to be paid squad and match fees after a deal lasting one year was agreed with the Rugby Football Union.
The new arrangement has been finalised in time for the three-match series against Canada, which opens on Friday night, and will include the Six Nations.
It is the first time that squad and match fees - understood to be worth a total in the region of £5,000 for a player who features in every game this month - have been paid.
Previously, players were contracted to the RFU for the duration of a year.
"We have been working with the Rugby Players Association and a representative group of players to agree a pay structure," an RFU spokeswoman said.
"The pay deal includes squad and match fees and is another step forward in our drive to professionalise the women's game in England."
