Connacht Rugby are pleased to confirm another contract renewal for a homegrown talent, with Niall Murray signing a new two-year deal.
The former Coláiste Chiaráin student first made his debut in December 2019 and has gone on to make 47 appearances for his home province.
He was also a part of the Ireland U20 side that won a Grand Slam in the 2019 U20 Six Nations.
“I’m really pleased to sign a two-year contract and extend my stay at my home province. The club gave me my first opportunity and since then I’ve loved every minute. Now I want to do everything I can to keep improving and helping the club succeed,” Niall enthused.
“Niall is a brilliant young professional who’s game continues to go from strength to strength. He’s always had a natural athleticism about him, and recently he’s added extra physicality and bulk to his game. He’s becoming one of our key forward leaders too, so we’re delighted to see him commit to Connacht for at least a few more years,” Andy Friend added.
