Connacht quintet extend deals


New contract extensions have been announced for five Connacht players ahead of next season.

The quintet are centres Tom Daly and Peter Robb, hooker Shane Delahunt and props Dominic Robertson-McCoy and Conor Kenny.

According to Connacht head coach Andy Friend, the signings are the first of several ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

"We are delighted to have Tom Daly, Peter Robb, Dominic Robertson-McCoy, Shane Delahunt and Conor Kenny all signing contract extensions with Connacht," Friend said.

"During our Champions Cup and PRO14 campaigns we have already seen the depth we need in the squad to perform on two fronts.

"We expect to have more announcements in the coming weeks as we are working to finalise our squad going into the 2020/21 season."
