Marmion extends contract with Connacht
November 5, 2013
Scrum-half Kieran Marmion has signed a contract extension with Connacht, committing to the region until the summer of 2016.
Marmion, 21, who toured North America with Ireland in the summer, has not missed a game since making his Connacht debut 14 months ago.
Head coach Pat Lam said: "Kieran is a fantastic player and a key member of our squad and it's a real boost that he sees his continued development and future with the club he started his professional career with.
"I have no doubt that he will go on to achieve great things within Connacht and Irish rugby."
