Connacht Rugby added the 41st member to its 2020/21 squad with Munster's Alex Wootton joining on loan for the season. The versatile backline player can expected to play an important part in Connacht's backline, particularly with the loss of several key players at the end of the last season. The 26-years-old, a former Irish U20 squad member, made a name for himself in Munster as a lethal finisher, and that is what Connacht coach Andy Friend will want as they prepare for the restart on Augut 22. Friend says Wootton’s arrival will strengthen Connacht’s back field options. "Alex is a very exciting back three player who has all the talent to take his game to the next level. His versatility across the back line will also help us as we look to compete on both fronts next season."

Why the impasse at the Sportsground?

What a difference a season makes. Connacht Rugby kicks off its new Pro 12 campaign on Saturday as reigning champions for the first time. No doubt there are still some players and many more supporters who are still pinching themselves to make sure last season's heroic campaign is for real. It is the same feeling Joe Connolly must have felt when he lifted the McCarthy Cup in 1980 - some 57 years after Galway last won the All Ireland - or when Galway United won the FAI Cup in 1991.
