FRANCOIS Louw has committed his future to Bath after signing a new long-term deal at the Rec.
The 28-year-old South Africa flanker, who has 19 caps for his country, joined Bath in 2011 and has become a key part of Gary Gold's side.
Bath head coach Gold said: "Flo is truly a world class player, and the fact that he was so keen to stay with us says great things about what we are working to create here.
"He could have chosen his club, and he chose to stay with us. We are delighted to have him on board.”
Louw added: “I love playing at Bath and absolutely believe in where we’re going, so signing a new deal was a no-brainer for me. I’m just happy it’s all sorted so I can get back to work.”
