London - England internationals Dylan Hartley and Courtney Lawes have both signed new contracts with Premiership champions Northampton, the club announced on Wednesday.

The deals involving the two forwards were among a batch of seven fresh contracts, with flank Calum Clark, props Alex Waller, Ethan Waller and Gareth Denman, and lock James Craig also agreeing to stay.

Hartley has clocked up almost 200 first team appearances and won 61 England caps.
