Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni has signed a new one-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2016.
Rokoduguni, 26, shone for Bath during the 2013-14 campaign and represented the England Saxons. He combines his ongoing duties serving in the British Army with his time at Bath and he is looking forward to pushing on next season.
"It felt like the natural choice," Rokoduguni said. "I love it here at Bath. The environment is superb - we're like a big family - and everybody wants to play their part in the next stage of the team's development."
Head coach Mike Ford added: "Roko's the type of player you would pay good money to watch, and I tell him as much before every match. It's remarkable to think that it wasn't so long ago he was serving with the British Army in Afghanistan. He's a fantastic winger and he's going to help us win matches this season, and I'm certain he'll be pushing for more England recognition too."
