The fly-half won the last of his 10 caps at the 2019 World Cup but was called up to Andy Farrell’s squad ahead of Sunday’s win over Argentina as cover for the injured Johnny Sexton.

He made his debut for the province in 2012 and has appeared 164 times, including being part of the squad which won the Guinness PRO12 in the 2015-16 season.

“I’m so thankful and grateful to be able to represent my home province for another three years,” the 29-year-old told Connacht’s website.

“The last six months have easily been the most enjoyable part of my career and in that time I feel I’ve matured as a player, leader and person.”

Carty was handed his international debut by former Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt during the 2019 Six Nations.

He has started just two games for his country and is yet to feature under current coach Farrell.

Connacht head coach Andy Friend said: “Jack is a top-class international out-half and a crucial player for our squad.”
