Irish second row Devin Toner has signed a two-year contract extension with Leinster that will see him remain at the province until at least June 2017.

The 28 year old has won 20 caps for his country and has firmly established himself at both provincial and international level in the last couple of seasons.

Toner made his senior debut for Leinster against the Border Reivers in January 2006 and has since made 157 appearances for Leinster scoring 3 tries.

"It is great to have signed on for another two years with Leinster," he said today.

"I have been with the province for almost a decade and during that time the club have invested a lot in my development and have given me the platform to reach my potential and achieve success at both provincial and national level.”

IRFU Performance Director David Nucifora, said the contract was just rewards for his high levels of consistency.                                             

"Devin has developed into an international level second row over the last few seasons.  He has performed consistently at a high level for both Ireland and Leinster and is illustrating strong leadership skills in both the provincial and national environments.”
