Connacht sign…. .. .. .. .. .. …..Ah You!

Connacht’s squad has been bolstered with the addition of South African Dylan Rogers and New Zealand’s Rodney Ah You to the front row.

 

Both props can play on either side of the scrum giving Head Coach Eric Elwood plenty of options up front and are a welcome addition with Robbie Morris sidelined through injury.

South African Rogers played with the University of Cape Town before being called up to the Griqualand West side this season whilst Ah You, who has been capped by New Zealand at U19 and U20 transfers from Canterbury (NPC).


“We’re delighted to have the two guys on board ” said Head Coach Eric Elwood.


“They offer us options to mix our team up a bit, the inclusion of the Italian teams in this year’s Magners League means an extra 25 per cent games and with the Amlin Challenge Cup as well it is important to be able to give guys a rest and rotate the squad “.


“We are also very happy to be able to give these young promising rugby players a chance to prove their worth on the big stage.”


“Connacht have always offered opportunities for players to hold their hand up and rise to the challenge, these guys are big mobile forwards and we feel they will fit into our setup very well “.
