Connacht Add Rory Scholes To Backs Division

Connacht Rugby and the IRFU have announced the signing of former Ulster and Ireland Under-20 winger Rory Scholes for the 2017/18 season.

Rory Scholes moves back to Ireland from Edinburgh where he spent last season, having previously scored five tries in 26 senior appearances for Ulster. The Belfast-born 24-year-old made nine appearances for the Ireland Under-20s in 2013, scoring 33 points in the process.

Commenting on Connacht’s latest signing, the province’s assistant coach Nigel Carolan said: “We are delighted to have Rory Scholes on board for the coming season. Rory is an exciting player and he will add further quality to our squad for the season ahead.
