Ireland lock Devin Toner has signed a new IRFU contract which will keep him at Leinster until at least June 2017.

The 28-year-old made his Leinster debut in 2006 and has clocked up 157 appearances for the Irish province.

Toner has won 20 caps for Ireland and was part of this year's victorious Six Nations team.

"Leinster have given me the platform to reach my potential and achieve success at both provincial and national level," said Toner on Monday.

He added: "It is great to have signed on for another two years with Leinster.

"I have been with the province for almost a decade and during that time the club have invested a lot in my development.

Toner has won three Heineken Cups, an Amlin Cup and three Pro12 league titles during his career with Leinster.

His last appearance for Ireland was in the 26-23 victory over Australia at the Aviva Stadium on 22 November.

Fellow Leinster forward Mike Ross also signed a new deal last week, with the prop staying with the club until at least June 2016.
