Leinster have confirmed that Ireland international James Lowe has signed a contract extension with the province.

Born in New Zealand, Lowe made his professional rugby debut with Tasman in 2012 and went on to make his Super Rugby debut for Chiefs in 2014.

The 30-year-old made a switch to Leinster in 2017 and has gone on to play for the province 71 times scoring 50 tries. He was also part of Leinster squad that went on to win four Pro14 titles in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

He qualified to play for Ireland in 2020 and went on to make his debut in the autumn internationals that year against Wales and enjoyed a Six Nations Grand Slam triumph this year.

Lowe has 20 Ireland caps to his name scoring nine tries.

Apart from Lowe, Leinster also confirmed centre Liam Turner has signed a new deal.

Leinster hold the top position in the United Rugby Championship table with 15 wins from 16 matches and they will also be taking on Toulouse in the semi-final of the Heineken Champions Cup at Aviva Stadium on 29th April.
