Jordan Larmour, Devin Toner, Josh van der Flier and James Ryan are among the 28 players who have signed new Leinster contracts ahead of the 2020/21 season.

On Thursday the province announced a slew of new deals including short-term extensions for Fergus McFadden and Rob Kearney which will keep them at the province until the end of this current delayed campaign which Leinster will be hoping concludes with a Champions Cup final on October 17th.

Also included in the list of new deals are academy players Ryan Baird, Harry Byrne, Jack Dunne, Tommy O’Brien, Dan Sheehan who have all been promoted to senior contracts.

The province also confirmed that Joe Tomane, Bryan Byrne, Barry Daly, Gavin Mullin, Oisin Dowling, Roman Salanoa and Jack Aungier will all leave the province.

“We are delighted to be able to confirm the list of 28 contracts today and in particular with so many of them coming through the clubs and the schools of Leinster. A huge amount of work goes in to developing players at all levels of the game so it’s incredibly pleasing for us to have five players promoted directly from our Academy,” sid head coach Leo Cullen.

After the ECPR confirmed the dates for the Champions Cup quarter-finals on Thursday, Leinster will build towards their meeting with Saracens as well as the conclusion to the Pro14 season.
