Former Leinster star Jack McGrath has recommitted to Ulster, signing a new two-year contract extension that will see him remain at the Kingspan Stadium until 2022. 

Since making the move to Ulster at the start of the season, McGrath has made 10 appearances for the province.

With 56 caps for Ireland to-date, McGrath was selected by Andy Farrell for this year’s Guinness Six Nations squad, having previously played his part in wins for Ireland in the championship in 2014, 2015 and 2018 – alongside appearances in all three Tests on the 2017 British and Irish Lions Tour of New Zealand.

“By renewing the contracts of players such as Jack, we are continuing to strengthen our squad now, and also into the future, given the important leadership he provides for our young talent starting out in their careers. I’m confident that Jack will play an important role in Ulster’s successes in the years ahead.”

On his decision to remain with Ulster, Jack McGrath, added: “On arriving at Ulster, I was welcomed with open arms, and I have very much settled here since joining at the start of this season.
