DAN SHEEHAN, HARRY Byrne and Ryan Baird are the latest players to agree new deals with Leinster Rugby, the province have announced.

Five-cap Ireland international Sheehan, 23, made his debut for Leinster last season and has since scored 13 tries in 21 appearances, including seven in eight this season.

Byrne, 22, made his debut for Leinster in 2019 and has made 22 appearances since then, scoring 154 points.

The out-half made his debut for Ireland in July 2021 against the United States.

Second row Baird made his Leinster debut against Ulster in April 2019, and has represented the province 36 times.

The 22-year-old also has eight Ireland caps to his name, making his debut against Italy last February, and is part of Andy Farrell’s squad for the current Six Nations campaign, starting against Italy last Sunday.

Leinster have not revealed how long the new contracts will run for.
