Kane Palma Newport for Bath

New deal: Kane Palma-Newport

Bath have announced that promising, local youngsters Kane Palma-Newport and Olly Woodburn have both agreed extensions to their club contracts.

Prop forward Palma-Newport, 23, and wing Woodburn, 22, featured in last week's impressive win over Leicester Tigers, a win that secured the club a home LV= Cup semi-final against Exeter.

And first team coach Toby Booth was delighted they have both put pen to paper on new contracts.

"We have been working hard here to create a progressive environment which allows players to develop to their full potential. You need players that are talented and have fantastic attitudes for that to bring success to the Club. Both Olly and Kane are Academy graduates who undoubtedly have those key attributes. We are excited to see their continued progression," said Booth.

Palma-Newport added: "Olly and I are both very happy to have extended our deals. Bath is our home Club and it is where we want to achieve success. This is the right environment to get better, and we are excited to be part of Bath's immediate future."
