Alex Wootton joins Connacht on season-long loan deal

Munster Rugby have today confirmed that winger Alex Wootton will join Connacht on a season-long loan deal

Head Coach Johann van Graan said:

“Alex is a great person and a talented player, we wish him all the best at Connacht.

“Unfortunately, he got injured over the past year and struggled to fight his way back into the team. He’s looking for playing time and we wish him well with the move.”

Originally from Stockport, Wootton joined the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy in 2014 and moved up to the senior squad in 2016.

He scored 13 tries in 39 appearances for the province and scored the decisive try in Munster A’s British and Irish Cup final win over Jersey Reds in 2017.

Wootton made two Munster appearances in the 2019/20 campaign with injury limiting his involvement.
