Miah Nikora: Connacht fly-half agrees terms on a new contract
Connacht fly-half Miah Nikora has agreed a new one-year contract to remain at the Sportsground.
The 27-year-old, who was born in New Zealand, joined Connacht at the beginning of the 2009/10 season and has made 63 appearances for the province so far.
He is now qualified to represent Ireland through residency, having previously played for New Zealand at Schools, U19 and U21 level.
Connacht chief executive Tom Sears told the club's official website: "Miah is a key member of the Connacht squad and we are very pleased he will be staying with us.
"Every squad needs two quality players at out-half and Miah has proven time and time again that when he gets the opportunity he is more than capable of stepping up. He showed that admirably last week in the win over the Cardiff Blues.
"He has an outstanding attitude and work ethic and sets a great example to other players.
"With both Miah and Dan Parks in our squad we have two excellent goal-kicking 10s who push each other constantly and provide crucial depth in a key position."
