Connacht Rugby and the IRFU have announced that back row Robin Copeland will join the province at the end of the current season on a two year contract.
Copeland has made over 60 appearances for Munster during four seasons with the club and previously played over 50 times with the Cardiff Blues.
Welcoming the signing, CEO of Connacht Rugby Willie Ruane said: “Robin is a player we have had on our radar for quite a while and we are delighted to have secured his signing ahead of the 2018/19 season. Robin brings incredible athletic ability and rugby experience to our squad and he will be a valuable player for us as we target further success in the season ahead. We are confident that he will be a great addition to Connacht both on and off the field.”
At international level, Copeland was capped for the Irish Senior International side when he made his debut against Georgia in November 2014. The back row has also represented the Irish Wolfhounds and Emerging Ireland sides.
