Wootton joins Connacht
Connacht have announced the signing of Alex Wootton on loan from Munster, with the 25-year-old heading to Galway for the 2020-21 season.
Born in England, Wootton is a product of the Munster academy and has made 39 appearances for the province since his debut in September 2016, scoring 13 tries.
The former Ireland Sevens and Under-20 player arrives at the Sportsground to bolster Andy Friend’s options in the backline.
On his move to Galway, Wootton said: “I can’t wait to meet the rest of the squad and begin preparations for what I’m sure will be a very exciting season.”
