Date published: February 12 2015

Back row duo Alafoti Faosiliva and David Sisi have both renewed their contracts with Premiership club Bath, the club announced on Thursday.

Faosiliva and Sisi, who joined the club in 2013, have both impressed with their powerful, abrasive style of play, and provide the coaching team with two players who are solid in defence and dynamic in attack.

Bath also confirmed that Academy lock Tom Ellis has joined Yorkshire Carnegie on loan for the rest of the season.

"We're very pleased that both Alafoti and David have agreed to stay with us. They are class players, always very professional and are great guys to have in the squad," said Bath head coach Mike Ford.

"Game time is hugely important, especially for young players. The loan move to Carnegie will be really beneficial for Tom, and we're excited to see how he develops there."
