Fresh from helping England record a first-ever series win in Australia last month, Jack Nowell, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Henry Slade have signed on to new three-year contracts.

All three players have established themselves within English rugby, but also on the European and international stage.

When you look at all the things it needs for three players like that to sign for a club, it shows that you are ticking a lot of boxes.

First and foremost it shows that we look after them and they enjoy being here, which is vitally important, but it also shows that we can help them not only achieve the ambitions which they have achieved so far, but that they also feel in the future they will experience big things here, not just in the Premiership and in Europe, but also internationally.
