Connacht have tied down three key players to new contracts today.
Forwards Denis Buckley and Quinn Roux and out-half Jack Carty have all signed two-year extensions at the Sportsground.
Roux made his Ireland debut in this summer's tour of South Africa while Roscommon duo Buckley and Carty are both capped up to under-20s at international level.
“It’s fantastic to see these senior players sign on for the future with Connacht Rugby,” Head Coach Pat Lam said. “Having witnessed the three of them grow and develop as players and men over the past four seasons, I’m personally very pleased that they will be part of a strong squad that will drive continued success on and off the field for Connacht Rugby.”
“These re-signings are another big boost for Connacht Rugby and our supporters on the back of Tom McCartney, Bundee Aki, Ultan Dillane, Finlay Bealham Niyi Adeolokun, Sean O’Brien, James Connolly, Peter Robb and Caolin Blade all recently signing contract extensions,” CEO Willie Ruane said.
“Obviously developing and retaining Connacht-born players like Denis (Buckley) and Jack (Carty) is a huge part of our vision of ‘Grassroots to Green Shirts’ and we value the commitment to their home province massively.
“Quinn (Roux) came to us a few seasons ago on the back of a difficult two years with injuries. He has really taken his opportunity with both hands and we’re delighted he sees his future here with Connacht.”
