Centres Eoin Griffin and Dave McSharry have signed contract extensions with Connacht which will keep them at the Irish province until at least 2014.

The duo both played for Ireland Under-20s and are regarded as two of the most promising backs in Irish rugby.

Griffin came through the Connacht Academy system while McSharry joined the club from Leinster this season.

"I'm delighted to be playing for Connacht and with Dave for another two years," said Griffin.

McSharry said he had "no hesitation" in signing the contract extension.

"I have played in a few huge games now and those games can do wonders for you," said McSharry.

"Playing in those big games is worth 10 training sessions. This is what I want to be doing, playing as much as possible. I'm delighted."
