Mack Hansen commits to three more years with Connacht Rugby

By Michael Scully

Mack Hansen insists it was a "no-brainer" to sign a three-year contract extension with Connacht Rugby.

Hansen, 23, has handed the province a massive boost by agreeing the new deal with the province while he still had one year left on his current two-year contract.

The versatile backline star made a massive impact in his first season with the club, scoring six tries in 14 matches and making his Ireland debut during the Six Nations and he went on to start four of the five championship games in February and March.

The former Brumbies player has signed on until the end of the 2025 season.

"Committing my future at Connacht was a no-brainer," said Hansen. "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.

"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."

At this week’s Connacht Rugby Awards, Hansen has been nominated for both the Players’ Player and Fans’ Player of the Year Awards.

Connacht head Coach Andy Friend reacted: "Mack has made an immeasurable impact on the club since his arrival.

"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."
