February starts on a high at the Pirates as flanker Alex Cheesman and Skipper Chris Morgan both extend their commitment for another two years.
A three times Oxford Blue, Alex joined the Pirates in 2012 as a centre but has converted to playing in the back-row where his development and committed performances have earned him due plaudits.
Shaggy-haired and hard-working as a flanker, Alex reached the 100 games milestone for the club in December.

Back-rower Chris Morgan - who has also featured in the second-row - has played over 200 games for the Pirates, and made his first appearance back in 2005/06 when on loan from Bristol.
He signed full time from Newbury in 2008 and has since turned in a string of magnificent performances.
Captain of the Pirates for the past three seasons, stalwart Chris has won various club awards over the years and was a member of the 2010 British & Irish Cup winning team. He has also played for the Barbarians.

Coach Alan Paver - extremely pleased with these latest signings and admiring both as players and as people - said: “For both Alex and Chris to sign is fantastic news for us. They are fully committed individuals who have deserved respect for the way they play, and indeed for their overall attitude.
“Alex has proved himself as one of the best back-rowers in the Championship, and Morgs is a legend who is still playing superbly.”
