Ulster flanker Sean Reidy has signed a contract extension to keep him at the Kingspan Stadium until 2020.

The New Zealand-born back row player has started eight of Ulster's nine games this season, operating at open-side flanker and number eight.

Reidy joined Ulster from Counties Manukau in 2014, making his debut against the Newport Gwent Dragons.

He had previously agreed a new deal in February, but his form has earned him a further extension.

"I'm really happy to be sticking around. I've enjoyed the past two and a half years a lot and my partner and I really love the place," said 27-year-old.

"The set-up here is really good and I'm looking forward to being part of an exciting journey over the next few years."

Ulster director of rugby Les Kiss said: "It's brilliant that Sean has committed to us.

"During the summer, I was delighted his hard work was rewarded with a first international cap.

"His defence and breakdown work has been impressive in the early stages of the season and that has had a big impact for us."
