France international back-row Antonie Claassen has signed a new contract with Top 14 champions Racing 92.

The 31-year-old was a replacement in Racing's Top 14 final victory over Toulon earlier this year, winning his second French title after joining from Castres.

Claassen has signed a two-year extension to his contract, keeping him at the club until 2019.

The Durban-born back-row was won six caps for France, the last of which came against Scotland in the 2014 Six Nations under Philippe Saint-André.
