Cian Healy said that he is loving his rugby at the moment, as the Ireland and Leinster prop signed a new one-year extension to his IRFU contract.

The new deal takes the Clontarf native up to the end of the 2021/22 season.

He follows Ireland skipper Johnny Sexton, vice-captain James Ryan, flanker Peter O'Mahony and lock Iain Henderson in agreeing new terms with the IRFU.

Healy is Ireland's most capped prop forward, having lined out for Ireland on 107 occasions, having made his international debut against Australia in November 2009.

The 33-year-old was selected for the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour of Australia, making two appearances before injury ended his involvement.

Healy has won three Six Nations titles with Ireland and represented Leinster on 226 occasions, winning four Heineken Cup titles during his career in blue.

"My drive for success at both Leinster and Ireland is as strong as ever," said Healy.

"I am lucky enough to currently be part to two teams with the same mentality which is special and I look forward to another season of pushing boundaries and achieving our goals.

"I’m loving my rugby as much now as I did at the very start of my career and looking forward to having our supporters back in stadia."
