Dan Parks U18s 350Connacht Rugby are delighted to announce that legendary outhalf Dan Parks will join the Connacht U18 Schools/Clubs coaching team for the coming season. The former Scottish international and leading RaboDirect points scorer will combine his role as backs coach with his playing commitments for the Senior side.

Connacht U18 were narrowly beaten by Leinster in the final of last season’s club inter-pros and hope to build on their position as one of the top provinces at this grade. Parks will complete the coaching team alongside Eamonn Molloy and Ambrose Conboy.

Commenting on the appointment, Coach Development Manager, Molloy said: “Connacht’s coach succession planning has been very beneficial with both Eric Elwood and Dan McFarland beginning their coaching careers with our age grade teams. Dan (Parks) has a wealth of knowledge and experience which gives him an excellent foundation to his coaching career.”
