Exeter Chiefs scrum-half Haydn Thomas and back-row Kai Horstmann have signed contract extensions which keep them at the club until the end of next season.

The duo follow in the footsteps of Ian Whitten, Dave Ewers, Tom Johnson, Damian Welch, Jack Yeandle and skipper Dean Mumm in re-signing.

"First and foremost we're really pleased with how both guys are playing," Chiefs boss Rob Baxter said. "The other part of it is we're really pleased with the kind of men they are, their personalities around the squad, the way they train.

"When I've been watching the squad work together, I think they're two very important people to us."

He added: "It's great to see Kai fit for the whole season this season and getting as much game time as he has. I think he's proved what a good Premiership performer he is.

"Haydn has been a bit unfortunate with a couple of niggly injuries this season, but we know he's a solid Premiership performer. He's in a position with a lot of competition now with Dave Lewis, Will Chudley and Stu Townsend starting to come through from our academy, but his experience in the Premiership is invaluable in keeping a strong squad."
