Transfer News: British & Irish Lion signs new contract

Tadhg Furlong has signed a three-year IRFU contract to remain at Leinster up to June 2021.

The tighthead made his Ireland debut against Wales in the 2015 Guinness Summer Series before being named in the squad for RWC2015.

The Campile native featured against Romania in that tournament and went on to make his 6 Nations debut the following spring featuring off the bench against the Welsh.

In June 2016, Furlong replaced Mike Ross to help Ireland secure a famous victory over the Springboks in Cape Town and later that year would start in Chicago as Ireland recorded their first ever win over New Zealand.
