Loosehead Buckley is staying with Connacht

FORMER Blackrock College prop Denis Buckley has signed a two-year contract extension keeping him at Connacht until the summer of 2015.

The 22-year-old loose-head made his debut for Connacht in September 2011 and has built up 20 appearances in impressing coach Eric Elwood.

"It's such a privilege to play for your province. Connacht are achieving more and more each year and I'm really looking forward to being part of that and making my mark," said Buckley.
