Wallaby Fardy eliminates World Cup contention
TRANSFER NEWS: Wallaby Scott Fardy has officially ruled himself out of the Wolrd Cup contention with his new contract extension at Leinster.
The loose forward, who has become an integral part in Leinster’s set-up, has signed a one-year contract extension with the Irish Pro14 giants.
Fardy joined the province in August 2017 and has made 37 appearances since.
In his first season with Leinster, Fardy helped the province to a Champions Cup and PRO14 double in a campaign which saw him make 22 appearances and score four tries.
“I’ve re-signed so I’ll be going again for another year,” the 34-year-old told the media on Monday.
“I made that decision a while ago, just things had to get sorted out. I’m really happy to be here for another year and continue to go after trophies.
“We’re enjoying it, my wife’s settled in well and the young fella’s growing up pretty quickly. We’re enjoying our time here in Dublin.”
“With the squad, you’ve got and the leaders here and the staff as well, no one’s really selling you anything. With the senior players and junior players here, it’s easy to get caught up and enjoy your rugby.”
