The talented backs are the latest squad members to commit their futures to the reigning Aviva Premiership champions, following in the stud marks of team-mates Greg Holmes, Mitch Lees, Gareth Steenson, Elvis Taione, Ian Whitten, Harry Williams and Jack Yeandle, who themselves have all penned new contracts this month.
Keen to ensure the player pool at Sandy Park remains largely untouched, Director of Rugby Baxter has made no secret of the fact that his priority is to ensure he retains a large nucleus of his current squad for the foreseeable future.
Naturally, he is delighted that both Hill and Short have signed on the dotted line and will remain in Devon until the end of the 2020/21 season.
