Sean Reidy commits to Ulster for another three years in a deal which will keep the back row with the province until the summer of 2020

Ulster back row Sean Reidy has signed a three-year contract extension with the Province.

The new deal will keep the New Zealand born star at the Kingspan Stadium until the summer of 2020.

Reidy only signed a two year deal with Ulster in February but his form has led to a further extension.

The 27-year-old has started 8 of Ulster's 9 games this season.

Reidy made his international debut during Ireland's summer tour of South Africa in June.

Commenting on his decision to extend his contract, Reidy said:

"I'm really happy to be sticking around. I've enjoyed the past two and a half years a lot and my partner and I really love the place.

"I've been pleased with the amount of minutes I've got under my belt so far this season but I'm going to keep my head down and try to keep developing my game under Les and the rest of the coaches.

Ulster Director of Rugby Les Kiss welcomed the news:

"It's brilliant that Sean has committed to us until 2020; it's another good bit of business by our Operations Director, Bryn Cunningham.

"Sean has worked hard since his arrival at Ulster and his game has developed very well as a result of that. During the summer, I was delighted that his hard work was rewarded with a first international cap.

"His defence and breakdown work has been very impressive in the early stages of the season and that has had a big impact for us. I am really enthusiastic about what Sean can deliver for us over the next few years.”
