Date published: March 8 2017

Veteran second-row Jason Eaton has signed a new one-year contract extension to remain with Top 14 leaders La Rochelle.

Eaton, 34, has made 67 appearances for the club since joining La Rochelle back in 2014 and has played a key role in their rise to the top of the table this season.

The former Hurricanes forward, who made 88 appearances in Super Rugby between 2006 and 2013, was capped 15 times by the All Blacks over a four-year period between 2005-2009.

La Rochelle moved four points clear in first place following their away win over Toulouse last Sunday.
