Sean Reidy signs two-year contract extension

Ulster Rugby is delighted to announce back-rower, Sean Reidy, as the latest player to sign a contract extension, which will see him remain at Kingspan Stadium until at least the summer of 2022.

The 30-year-old Irish international, who joined Ulster in 2014 and made a winning debut for the senior side in the same year, is one of the club’s most experienced players with 120 appearances to date, along with his two caps for Ireland.

A hard-grafting openside flanker, Reidy tops the table for tackles made in the Guinness PRO14 this season with 142 in nine appearances. The New Zealand native also boasts the impressive record of making an appearance in every game of Ulster’s Heineken Champions Cup games since 2016.

On the deal, Head Coach, Dan McFarland, said: “Sean is a player who brings a depth of experience and skill to our squad – and I am delighted that he has chosen to secure the next two years with Ulster.

“As a regular in our matchday squads, Sean’s ongoing contribution to Ulster on the pitch is evident. Off the pitch, Sean also brings leadership and knowledge which is invaluable for our current group of players.

“This contract extension is just reward for Sean’s hard work and determination.”

Commenting on the signing, Reidy, added: “This is my sixth season with Ulster and I’m enjoying it as much as ever. Belfast has become my home and it’s great to get signed up for another two years.

“Ulster is a fantastic squad to be a part of – and I am very much looking forward to what the future holds for both me as an individual and as part of the wider team.”
