Connacht Rugby are pleased to confirm another contract renewal for a homegrown talent, with Niall Murray signing a new two-year deal.
 
The Roscommon lock 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.
 
Niall Murray says:
 
“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.”
 
Andy Friend says:
 
“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 & 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.”
