Leinster coach Joe Schmidt has signed a one-year extension with the European champions that will keep him in Dublin until the end of the 2013/14 campaign.

Schmidt, 46, has led the province to back-to-back European Cup triumphs as well as runners-up position in each of the last two Grand Finals since joining from ASM Clermont Auvergne fresh from securing the Bouclier de Brennus in the summer of 2010.

Schmidt said: "I am delighted to sign an extension to my contract here with Leinster. I'm lucky to be part of such a positive coaching team and to have the top quality support staff we have.

"The professionalism of the players is a real asset and they constantly challenge themselves and each other to improve, which makes them a great group to coach.

"The wider Leinster community have really made my family and I feel welcome here and we have been fortunate to have enjoyed some memorable success on the field. Let's hope that with continued hard work - and a bit of luck - that there will be more bright days ahead," he said.

Commenting on the new deal, Leinster Chief Executive Michael Dawson said: "Joe is an outstanding leader and ambassador for the province and he continues to cultivate strong values within our organisation. I know that this news will be welcomed by our loyal following across the province and beyond."
