Tom is now an established figure in the Tigers front row this season and won his first caps for England during the autumn internationals with Fiji and Australia.

Scrum-half Ben is already an established figure in Stuart Lancaster's England set-up having won 26 international caps and he has just passed 100 appearances for Leicester.

"It is excellent news that both Tom and Ben have agreed new deals with us. They are both very important to the club," Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill told the club's official website.

"They have grown up in a Leicester Tigers family, their dad Nick played for the club, they know the history of this place.

"They have come all the way through the Academy system here before establishing themselves as key first-team players. Ben and Tom both have an excellent attitude to their work.

"They are the kind of players we want to build the club around for the future and we look forward to their continued development in the Tigers squad over the years to come."
