BATH youngsters Kane Palma-Newport and Olly Woodburn have agreed extensions to their contracts at the Rec.

Both players featured in last weekend’s impressive win over Leicester Tigers, a win that secured the club a home LV= Cup semi final against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday,  March 9 (1pm).

First team coach Toby Booth said: “We have been working hard here to create a progressive environment which allows players to develop to their full potential.

"You need players that are talented and have fantastic attitudes for that to bring success to the club. Both Olly and Kane are Academy graduates who undoubtedly have those key attributes. We are excited to see their continued progression.”

Palma-Newport added: “Olly and I are both very happy to have extended our deals.

"Bath is our home cub and it is where we want to achieve success. This is the right environment to get better, and we are excited to be part of Bath’s immediate future.”
