Ireland international Ultan Dillane has signed a new two-year contract with Connacht that will keep him with the Pro14 club at least until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Dillane has been associated with the Irish regional club since his professional rugby debut in 2014 and has went on to play for the club 43 times.

“I am delighted to be extending my contract and committing to Connacht for a further two seasons," the 25-year-old said.

“I am proud of the fact that I have come through the academy system in the province and gone on to play for Connacht and Ireland at senior level.

“There is huge confidence and ambition in the Connacht squad and throughout the organisation and I am really excited about what we can achieve over the next few years.”

The France born lock made his Ireland debut during the Six Nations clash against England in 2016 and has featured in 11 Tests with his last appearance coming during the autumn series in 2017.

“We are delighted to announce that Ultan Dillane has signed a two year contract extension," Connacht head coach Andy Friend said.

"Ultan has played the game at the highest level and brings a wealth of experience to our side. He will continue to be a central figure as we target further success in the seasons ahead.”
