New Connacht deal for Cooney


John Cooney has become the latest player to commit to Connacht.

Cooney joined Connacht on a loan deal from Leinster for the 2014-15 season before signing a permanent deal with the province ahead of the current campaign.

A shoulder injury has restricted him to just 19 appearances for the province but he is has returned to training and is expected to be available for selection in the coming weeks.

"Although it's been a frustrating few months with my injury, I'm really happy to have my future secured with Connacht for next season," Cooney said.

"I was really enjoying my rugby at the start of the season and I'm looking forward to pushing on now following my rehab. I am determined to push for a place in the team for what will be some really tough games and an exciting finish to the season."

Head coach Pat Lam added: "If we are going to be playing Champions Cup rugby next season it is vital we have quality depth and competition in key positions such as scrumhalf. I'm really pleased that John has committed to not only compete but also continue to grow his game with us at Connacht Rugby.

"John is an extremely hard working individual and we have a lot of belief in his ability so we're delighted that he has signed on for another season."
