France’s flyhalf Romain Ntamack has signed a massive long term extension with Toulouse that will keep the playmaker at his Top 14 club for the next six years.

The 23-year-old’s current deal was due to expire following the 2023 season but the club has acted quickly to lock in one the game’s brightest talents until 2028 with a five year extension.

Ntamack has been in the Toulouse system his entire life and made his Top 14 debut in 2018, the same year that he claimed the World Rugby under-20 championship with France. Toulouse won the league title in his first season in the top grade.

During his time with the club he has formed one of the best halves pairings in World Rugby with scrumhalf Antoine Dupont and the pair guided Toulouse to a rare double last season, taking the Champions Cup and the Top 14 league title.

His international debut for France came in the opening match of the 2019 Six Nations playing at outside centre, but later in the campaign he was moved to flyhalf, where he has played ever since.

With 28 test caps to his name, he won a Six Nations Grand Slam title with France this year and is pivotal to the nation’s hopes at next year’s Rugby World Cup.

The World Cup is just about the only trophy left for Ntamack to obtain, having won two domestic league titles, a European crown, a Six Nations Grand Slam title and the World Rugby under-20 championship all by age 23.

Toulouse also signed a deal with Ntamack’s younger brother, Theo, until the end of 2025.

The 19-year-old is also a France under-20 representative and is regarded as a promising prospect.
