Mack Hansen puts pen to paper on new 3-year deal

Ireland international Mack Hansen has signed a contract extension with Connacht Rugby which will see the winger stay with the province until at least 2025.

There were 12 months remaining on his existing contract but has now agreed to extend his time at the club after a breakout season in which Hansen has picked up four caps for Ireland and scored his first international try in a 30-24 loss to France.



Hansen’s versatility in being able to play either on the wing or at full-back has contributed to the back scoring 6 tries in 14 matches since arriving from the Brumbies. 

Connacht head coach Andy Friend welcomed the signing.

“Mack has made an immeasurable impact on the club since his arrival,” said Friend.

“He’s a popular character with the players, staff and supporters and it’s been really pleasing to see him take to rugby in Ireland like a duck to water."

“For him to commit the next three years of his career to Connacht when he’ll only get better is a really strong show of faith in where we’re going as a club on and off the field, and I look forward to seeing Mack continue to develop and grow as a player during that time too.”

Success continues for Hansen off the field, he has been nominated for both the Players’ Player and Fans’ Player of the Year Awards at this week’s Connacht Rugby Awards.

 

Mack Hansen says the next three seasons will be an exciting time for the club:

“Committing my future at Connacht was a no-brainer. Ever since I arrived in Ireland I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and my teammates who have made me feel right at home."

"Personally I’m pleased with how my first season has gone and now I want to do everything I can to help the club achieve success for the next three seasons,” said Hansen.

"The possibility of training and playing in Connacht Rugby’s new Stadium and High Performance Centre was also a major attraction for me, so I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me and for Connacht.”
