Willie Faloon has signed a two-year contract extension with Connacht as well as the Irish RFU.

The 27-year-old flanker, who joined the RaboDirect Pro12 club from Ulster at the start of last season, will remain at Galway Sportsground until the summer of 2016.

Faloon, who is currently recovering from a broken foot suffered against Ulster during September, said: "I'm delighted to be playing in Connacht for another two years.

"Since I arrived here, I've been made to feel so welcome by the lads and supporters alike.

"It's extremely disappointing to be injured but I still feel very much a part of the team and I am actively involved in analysis and team meetings.

"Right now, I am working hard with the physio and the conditioning staff."

Faloon's teammate - scrum-half Kieran Marmion - signed a new deal earlier in the week.
