Kilcock man Cormac Daly has today joined Connacht Rugby on a short-term deal.
Daly, who is a former Ireland U20s International, previously trained with the Connacht Professional squad during the 2019/20 season.
The 6’6’’ lock will provide additional cover following a number of international call-ups and injuries in the second row. He had been playing with his club Clontarf up until the most recent lockdown and even helped himself to a try in one of their last games before games drew to a halt.
Will Connors has kept his place at no7 for Ireland’s final Six Nations game against France in Paris this Saturday.
The former North Kildare Rugby player and under age Cappagh Gaa player Connors scored a try and was named player of the match in the victory over Italy at the Aviva Stadium last weekend.
Connors will be hoping he can help Ireland claim the Six Nations Championship title, with a bonus point victory needed to guarantee it as England will be expected to put up a big score against the Italians in the day’s earlier game in Rome.
