Connacht flanker Jake Heenan will leave the province at the end of the season.

Heenan joined Connacht in 2013 and made over 50 appearances and CEO Willie Ruane confirmed the news today.

£Jake has made a huge contribution to Connacht both on and off the field since he signed for us in 2013," said Ruane.

"Aside from his excellent performances on the pitch he has also been an outstanding role model off it. His contribution to various charities and the time he invested to coaching young players in the province is an example of everything that is good in Connacht Rugby. We wish him well in his future career.”
