Connacht announce the signing of Leinster winger Adam Byrne

Connacht confirmed the signing of one of Leinster's Byrnes on Thursday afternoon as they announced the signing of winger Adam Byrne.

The winger has represented Ireland at both U20 and senior level, and was Leinster's youngest ever player to make his debut when he ran out against his new province in 2012. He has played 64 times for Leinster, scoring 24 tries.The Kildare native made his debut for Ireland in the 2017 November Internationals, lining out on the wing for the victory over Argentina that month.In a statement released by Connacht on Thursday, Byrne said he was looking forward to the time ahead with his new club."I feel that the time is right to seek out a new challenge and I am hugely excited by the challenge that Andy Friend has set for me and I look forward to contributing to a new environment from next season," Byrne said."Connacht is an ambitious club and I am also fortunate that I already have mates playing there and I look forward to linking up with them ahead of a new season."Connacht head coach Andy Friend said, in the same statement, that Byrne will add something different to their back three options."Everyone in Irish rugby knows of the quality Adam has as a footballer," Friend said. "He will complement the style of rugby we play here at Connacht, and his height and strong physical attributes will also offer us something different.

"Many players have taken their games to a new level after being given the platform here at the club and I know Adam has what it takes to do the same."
