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.

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."
