Bath second-row Jonny Faamatuainu has signed a new two-year deal keeping him at the Recreation Ground until 2008.

The Samoa international originally signed on a short-term contract until the end of the season but has earned a more permanent deal after impressing the coaching staff at the west-country club.

"I am very pleased that I will be staying with Bath Rugby," the 22-year-old said.

"I enjoy playing rugby with the other guys here and there are a lot of experienced international level players around who I can learn a lot off."

Bath head coach Brian Ashton added: "It is good news Jonny has signed a two-year contract.
