Niall Murray signs for Connacht until 2025

Niall Murray has signed a new two-year contract extension with Connacht rugby.

The Roscommon lock first made his debut in December 2019 and has since made 47 appearances for his home province. Murray was also a part of the Ireland U20 side that won a Grand Slam in the 2019 U20 Six Nations.

"I’m really pleased to sign a two-year contract and extend my stay at my home province” said Murray.

“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” added Murray.

"Niall is a brilliant young professional whose game continues to go from strength to strength” explained Connacht director of Rugby Andy Friend.

“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” added Friend.
