The 26-year-old tight-head is the 11th player to commit to the Welsh region in recent weeks.

Jarvis is currently sidelined with a knee injury but hopes to return to start the 2013-14 season.

"This is what I really wanted," said Jarvis immediately after signing his new deal.

"I'm happy living in the area, the family have settled down here, and I've really developed as a player over the last two seasons since coming here.

"I'm really, really happy to have signed for another three years."
