Connacht have announced the signing of Tom Daly on loan from Leinster until the end of the current season. The 25-year-old centre has been part of the Leinster senior squad since 2016.
At international level, Tom Daly played for Ireland at Under-18 and Under-19 levels and made his debut for the Ireland Under-20s in the 2013 U-20 Six Nations Championship. He went on to earn six caps in the World Rugby U-20 Championship later that year.
The Carlow native has also captained the Ireland Sevens team and was part of the squad that earned qualification for the Rugby Europe Sevens Grand Prix Series, as well as competing for a place at the 2016 Olympics via the Repechage tournament in Monaco.
Announcing the signing, Connacht head coach Andy Friend said: “We are delighted to announce that Tom will now be joining us on a loan deal until the end of the season to bolster our squad. He is powerful player who is capable of making a real contribution to our season and I’m sure he will integrate well into our existing squad.”
