Abendanon signs new deal

Bath have announced a new three-year contract for their England full-back Nick Abendanon.

Abendanon, who made his Test debut against South Africa in 2007, has made more than 150 appearances for Bath and is a current member of the England Saxons squad.

"I am extremely happy to sign another contract at Bath," Abendanon said.

"This is where my home is, and I love being involved with a club that has huge ambitions to win trophies both in England and in Europe.

"I have real faith in the team we are building here, and I feel that in the coming years we will have trophies to prove it."

Bath rugby director Sir Ian McGeechan added: "Nick is a very important member of the squad, both on and off the field, and his performances in the last two seasons, especially, have been consistently excellent."
