Connacht Sign Former Ulster Back

Connacht have signed former Ulster winger Rory Scholes ahead of the new season.

24-year-old Scholes, a former Ireland U-20s international, joins the western province from Scottish side Edinburgh. Scholes scored five tries in 24 Ulster appearances, but featured just 11 times during his one-year stint in the Scottish capital.

On his move to Galway, Scholes said:

“I am delighted to be joining Connacht ahead of the new season, particularly with an exciting new coaching team in place. I am looking forward to running out in the Sportsground and playing my part in what will hopefully be a successful season for the province.”

Connacht take on Glasgow Warriors in their PRO14 opener on September 1/2.
