New France international back-row Fabien Sanconnie and fly-half Nicolas Bézy have both re-signed with Top 14 club Brive.

Sanconnie, a former France U20 player, started in France’s last two Six Nations matches against Italy and Wales. His extension marks the continuation of his time with Brive having initally joined the club at the age of 14.

Bézy meanwhile extends his stay with the club since joining from Toulouse ahead of the 2014/2015 season.

Brive head coach Nicolas Godignon commented: “The exemplary progress of Fabien Sanconnie highlights the success of the setup at Brive.

“We are very proud to count him in the squad for the next few years and to see him evolve at the highest level with the French team. His qualities make him a precious element in our group.

“We are very happy to continue the adventure with Nicolas Bézy. He is a very talented player and very involved in the group. We hope to see him playing at the highest level and for as long as possible at CA Brive.”

Brive are set to end the season safe from relegation, currently occupying tenth place in the Top 14.
