Connacht and Ireland scrumhalf Kieran Marmion has extended his contract with the province until the 2019/20 season.

25-year-old Marmion has made 18 appearances for Ireland as Conor Murray’s understudy, and was part of Connacht’s Pro 12 winning side in 2016.

Marmion’s contract extension will keep him at the Sportsground until after the next Rugby World Cup in 2019.

On his new deal, Marmion said: “Since joining the Connacht Academy I have received great guidance from coaches and management in the club and I am extremely proud of what we have achieved to date.

“As a squad, we are excited about the coming seasons and are working towards bringing more success to the province. With the World Cup in 2019 only around the corner, I hope to be involved in the Irish squad in the years to come.”
