La Rochelle have announced that France international tighthead prop Uini Atonio has extended his contract with the Top 14 side until 2020.

The 25-year-old has become one of the game's strongest ball carriers in France since making the move from Counties Manukau back in 2011.

New Zealand-born Atonio, who played for Samoa U20s, made his les Bleus bow in 2014 and has now represented France twelve times.
