Leinster and Ireland centre Garry Ringrose has committed himself to his province for another three years, signing a deal with the IRFU which will carry him up to the end of the 2024-25 season.

Ringrose, who turns 27 in January, said he was "delighted" to sign up for another three years, saying "it is an exciting time to be involved with Leinster and Ireland. Both squads have ambition to be competing for silverware every year and I'm motivated to do whatever I can to contribute."

IRFU High Performance Director, David Nucifora commented, "Garry has had a tough road with injuries since the World Cup in Japan but he is a top international player who delivers big performances for Ireland and Leinster. He will be an influential figure at both national and provincial level over the coming years."

Since making his debut in November 2016, Ringrose has earned 35 international caps, and was a key figure in Ireland's Grand Slam winning campaign in 2018.

He started all three of Ireland's Autumn series wins, including the 29-20 victory over New Zealand, the second time he'd beaten the All Blacks.

For Leinster, Ringrose has already won a European Champions Cup medal back in 2018 and four successive Pro14 (now URC) titles.
