Meanwhile, Connacht Rugby have announced the first of their Open Training Sessions for this season.
As part of pre-season preparations, the westerners’ head coach Pat Lam will take the full Connacht squad to Tuam RFC next Thursday (August 15).
The morning session will start at approximately 10am and will be free entry for all. The day will kick off with a warm-up and full training session for the Connacht senior squad.
Once the hard work is done, the entire squad will take part in fun rugby drills and games with the kids attending the session. Kids are advised to come in their rugby gear and be ready to play with the Connacht players.
The Tuam visit forms part of this year’s Outreach & Engagement Programme that will see at least one open training session held in a different location every month, giving players the opportunity to train and meet supporters throughout the province.
