DENIS BUCKLEY HAS signed a new contract with Connacht, which will keep him at the province until at least 2015, it has been announced.

The deal represents a two-year extension to the Roscommon native’s current deal.

Buckley made his debut for Connacht in September 2011 against Benetton Treviso, and has since firmly established himself in the side, appearing in all but one of their games this season.

Speaking following the news, the 22-year-old said:

“I’m delighted to have signed for another two years; it’s such a privilege to play for your province. Connacht are achieving more and more each year and I’m really looking forward to being part of that and making my mark.”

CEO Tom Sears added: “Our aim is to build the strongest squad possible and Denis’ signing ensures that we are en route to doing so. He has truly played his part this season and we’re delighted to announce that he will continue to do so over the coming seasons.”
