Connacht have announced the signing of Greg McGrath from Leinster Rugby.
The 24-year-old, who can play as a tighthead or loosehead prop, has made three appearances for the Blues and represented Ireland at U20 level.
He will make the switch to the Sportsground ahead of the new season.
"We’re really pleased to welcome Greg to Connacht Rugby. He will give us the added depth that we need at tighthead but his ability to play at loose is another boost too. He’s very highly regarded on the club scene and has made a good impression during his time at Leinster, so we’re looking forward to his arrival," head coach Andy Friend commented.
McGrath added: “I’m very proud to be joining Connacht and sign my first Professional contract. Connacht have a great history of developing players and giving them an opportunity to impress, so I hope to make a positive impact there. I’m looking forward to making the move to the West and see what the future has in store.”
