Great news to start this thread :cheer:
Along with the signing of Joe Joyce (Ages Ago...), Connacht Rugby have just announced that John Porch has signed a 2 year extension.
More re-signings to follow in the coming week.

And Blade signs up for another three years two (no weird promo video for his announcement though). I presume they will drip feed the announcements over the next few weeks, I've completely lost track of who is and isn't signed up over the last few seasons.

Great work done last week - would be fantastic to see Marmion and Bundee announced in the coming weeks. If both those lads are gone (and I don't see Bundee heading to Munster, regardless of what the meejia seem to think) we'd be in trouble. Couldn't begrudge Marmion a move, he has gotten unfairly ignored/passed over by the lads in Dublin.

Kinda the opposite of a signing, but Joe Naughton was posting on Twitter today that Dewald Senekal is leaving at the end of the season. I know there were some rumours of this around the end of January in French media too. He'll be a massive loss if he does go, as our lineout has become an absolute weapon under his tenure, and himself and Tucker have done fantastic work overall with the forwards.

I wonder if there's a bit of an element of allowing the new coach (whoever they may be) have a say in the coaching team. Hopfully this was our choice not to renew if you know what I mean (although you're 100%, our lineout has been amazing as of late)

I'd say with the season tickets renewal around the corner, there'll be a raft of signings including coaching staff soon. Well hopefully ?

75% of all Sean O'Briens have signed for Connacht at some point.
Sean Jansen and Andrew Smith should be handy to have around as well.
