Hurley-Langton signs new two-year deal

Connacht Rugby are delighted to announce Shamus Hurley-Langton has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The back rower from Taranaki has made a major impact since joining the club in 2022. The 23 year old has scored 5 tries in 32 appearances and was named player of the match in last season’s BKT URC quarter-final win over Ulster.

Hurley-Langton has played most games at openside flanker this season but is equally adept on the blindside or number 8 positions.

Head coach Pete Wilkins says:

“We’re thrilled Shamus has committed to the club for at least another two years. He was quite early in his development when he first joined us but we knew he had all the attributes to turn into a top-class player, and we are now seeing the player we knew he could be. He brings enormous physicality to our back row and is a constant threat at the breakdown, and at 23 years old he’ll only get better”.
