Galway Daily sport Connacht Rugby confirms two forwards renewing contracts

Connacht Rugby have announced that two more players, Jack Aungier and Oisin Dowling have renewed their contracts with the club.

Both Aungier and Dowling came to Connacht Rugby in the summer of 2020, the latter coming over from Leinster, where he had made his senior debut the year before.

Since then Dowling has made twelve appearances for the province, and is also a former Ireland U20 international.

Tighthead prop Aungier is also a former Leinster and U20 Irish international player, and has made 20 appearances for Connacht.

“Both Jack and Oisin are key individuals in our long-term planning, so their re-signings are hugely important and significant for us as a team,” said Head Coach Andy Friend.

“Their respective games have improved since their arrival at Connacht, and they have shown that they have what it takes to play at highest level.”

“I’m delighted they have agreed to stay at Connacht. Our retention and recruitment is ongoing so we hope to share further news in the weeks ahead.”
