Leinster have announced the signing of scrumhalf Jamison Gibson-Park from the Hurricanes.
The province have have also confirmed that Hayden Triggs has extended his contract until the 2016/17 season having impressed this season after initially signing on a short-term deal as injury cover.
“We are very happy to have secured two key signings ahead of next season,” said head coach Leo Cullen.
“Jamison, for a young player, has a wealth of experience behind him already and was an ever-present in the Blues team last season in Super Rugby before signing with the Hurricanes.
“I think he will bring great competition to an area where we are well serviced with the likes of Nick McCarthy and Charlie Rock pushing the senior players hard already.
“Hayden has been influential since joining us earlier this season and we are probably only now seeing the best of him as he unfortunately suffered that ankle injury against Bath in the Champions Cup.
“In 14 games for us to-date we have seen the leadership that Hayden brings to this team as well as his excellent work ethic with and without the ball.”
