Bath have announce that club captain Stuart Hooper will continue at the Recreation Ground next season.
Hooper has turned out an incredible 174 times for the club since making his debut in 2008. He has been at the helm of a Bath side which this season has recorded some famous victories for the club, including an exceptional Champions Cup win in Toulouse in January.
"Stuart represents everything that's good about Bath Rugby," said Head Coach Mike Ford.
"I've said before that he's the best captain I've ever worked with. You couldn't ask for a better leader out there on the field and I’m looking forward to working with him again next season."
"I’m more eager than ever to carry on the good work that we’ve started at the club," said Hooper.
"We’re getting better year on year and I’ve no doubt we’re closer than ever to achieving something great here at Bath Rugby."
