Connacht have announced that lock Michael Swift has signed a contract extension that keeps the veteran at the outfit for at least another season.
The side's longest serving player has chalked up a record 157 league appearances and has also played 70 games in the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge during his 14 seasons with Connacht.
Born in London in 1977, he played for Richmond as flanker before spending a season at Leeds Tykes. He joined Connacht in 2000 and earned his first cap for the province against Ulster that year whilst also playing for Galwegians RFC.
He earned his 100th cap for Connacht against Montpellier in December 2006, becoming the fifth Connacht player to do so and in 2009 he earned his 100th league cap against the Cardiff Blues.
Swift became the first player in Connacht's history to reach the 200th cap milestone when he lined out against Edinburgh in September 2011.
"I'm delighted to have signed for another year with Connacht Rugby," he told the Connacht website.
"It's an exciting time to be involved with the province and in a squad that is shaping up nicely for next season. I've been here a long time now but every season, every game, it's still so exciting to me and I feel I have a lot more to give."
