Heenan and Ronaldson commit to Connacht

Jake Heenan and Craig Ronaldson have committed their futures to Connacht.

Heenan is in his third season with the province and will qualify for Ireland at the end of June, while Ronaldson has been a member of the squad since the summer of 2013.

Both players have impressed this season and have been rewarded with two-year contract extensions.

"Jake and Craig both started with Connacht the same season I did and it's been fantastic to witness their growth and development as rugby players in that time," head coach Pat Lam said.

"I've known Jake for a long time now and I'm excited by how far he will take his game in the next two seasons. While he has been frustrated with injuries, his determination and work ethic has ensured he has come back stronger each time.

"Craig has been a great asset for our squad over the last three seasons. As an inside centre, who can cover outhalf, his versatility and goal kicking has been vital for the team as well as giving us excellent depth in the backs.

"With Champions Cup rugby guaranteed for next season having the experience and commitment of both players to Connacht Rugby is very pleasing."
