Exeter duo Dave Ewers and Max Bodilly have agreed new contracts with the Aviva Premiership champions.

The Chiefs announced that flanker Ewers and centre Bodilly have penned deals that will keep them at Sandy Park until at least 2020.

Both players are products of the club's academy system.

Exeter rugby director Rob Baxter said: "It's very important for all kinds of reasons to keep hold of homegrown talent.

"We often talk about creating those strong links with the local community, and decisions like this are the way to do that. People who come to Sandy Park at a weekend for a game, they want to see these local guys performing and playing well.

"Equally, it's up to those players to go out and prove they deserve to be here and that they have the qualities to succeed and help take the club on to that next level.

"Both those things need to marry up for it to work, and as I've said before, we are keen to keep the right people here at the club and both Dave and Max are the right people for us."
