Neath have secured the services of three of their top players for next season.
Prop Duncan Jones and centre James Storey have both signed on the dotted line to a two-year extension to their existing contracts which will see them through to the end of the 2003/2004 season.
Meanwhile scrum-half Patrick Horgan has committed himself for a further four years and will stay at the Gnoll until at least the end of the 2005/06 season.
Neath coach Lyn Jones said: "It is great that three key players have shown their commitment to the club in extending their contracts.
"At Neath we are committed to player development and giving individuals a happy environment in which they can improve their game.
"All three players have responded to this environment over the past few seasons, and it is significant they have agreed to stay with us at the Gnoll."
