Rob Kearney has agreed a two-year deal with the IRFU
Rob Kearney has agreed a new two-year contract which will see him playing rugby for Ireland and Leinster until the end of the 2013 season.
Kearney, who is currently receiving treatment for a knee injury, joins a list of international players who have agreed new deals in recent months.
Brian O’Driscoll, Ronan O’Gara and Jamie Heaslip have also agreed new contracts in recent months.
Kearney has earned 27 caps, having made his debut against Argentina in 2007.
“This allows me to concentrate on returning to full fitness as soon as possible and put myself into contention for selection for Leinster and Ireland,” said Kearney.
“I have certainly missed playing over the last number of months but my injury is coming along and hopefully I will be back soon.
“There is nothing like representing both Leinster and Ireland and a big deciding factor was our supporters and the fact I think there is a lot more success to come for Leinster and Ireland.”
