ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Wood made the move to the Saints from Worcester last summer and is delighted to have signed a new deal.
"I've definitely enjoyed my time at the Saints," he said.
"It couldn't have gone much better really. Working with the players and coaches has been excellent and hopefully this will continue over the next few years.
"I knew I had a challenge to establish myself as a Saints player, especially with the quality players that we have in the back row, and everything else has been a bonus. I certainly had no hesitation in signing a new contract, and have no intention of going anywhere else.
"The club and town have more than lived up to my expectations. I knew I wanted to work with Jim, Dorian and Paul, and they have all spent a lot of time helping me with my game. And the fans have been brilliant, stopping me in the street to wish me good luck from day one.
"Hopefully we can finish the job this season and then build on that to bring more success to the club in the next few years."
