Connacht Rugby Squad Update


25 Oct 2016


Ahead of Saturday’s Guinness PRO12 round 7 game away to Leinster, the Connacht Rugby medical team have provided the following update.

Dominic Robertson McCoy (arm), Eoin Griffin (concussion) and Tiernan O’Halloran (knee) will all return to full team training this week.

Ronan Loughney suffered a hamstring injury in training last week which ruled him out of the Champions Cup clash with Zebre. An update on his return-to-play will be provided when known.

New signing Marnitz Boshoff, who arrived in Ireland on Friday, came through his medical examination today and was passed fit to commence full team training.

The Connacht team to face Leinster will be announced on Friday at 12 noon.
