Leo Cullen has extended his contract with Leinster, which will take the head coach up until the end of the 2022/23 season.

In May of last year, Cullen signed a rolling one-year contract extension, with the option to extend for a further season at the end of 2021/22. That extension has now been agreed upon.

Cullen, who won 221 caps for Leinster and was captain of three Heineken Cup-winning squads, was appointed head coach at the start of the 2015/16 season and has led the team to a Champions Cup and four Pro14/URC titles.

Leinster Rugby CEO Mick Dawson said: "We offered Leo a two-year contract last year but were very happy to work with Leo to make the situation work for him. It was always our intention, all going well, that we would sit down again and agree to the second year and that has been the case. It has been very straight forward thankfully.

"The job that Leo has done in his time as head coach has been excellent and he has with him, a group of coaches and staff, that contribute and drive the standards that we have here today at Leinster Rugby.

"They have created a hugely positive environment for the players over the last few years to perform to the best of their abilities.

"That continuity in our coaching team is a vital piece of the puzzle for us, as well as having someone like Leo who understands the system, our pathway and the importance of the clubs and the schools to the future success of Leinster Rugby."
