Sean Henry has been named the Connacht Player of the Month for November. The voting for the award in association with Hartmanns Jewellers and Tag Heuer watches, was opened up to the public last week and Henry was one of three players nominated by the management team for his hard work and commitment both on and off the pitch during the month of November.

The Sligo-born hooker, who joined Connacht this year from Munster, won the majority of the votes after impressing audiences with his on-field performances in games against Glasgow Warriors, Scarlets and Edinburgh.

Henry represented Connacht at Youths and U20 level before moving to Limerick for university and playing three seasons with Munster. Since the return to his home province this season, he has played in all but one game for Connacht.

Commenting on the October Player of the Month, Connacht Assistant Coach Dan McFarland said:

“Sean epitomises the TOUGHNESS we value as Connacht men. His set piece work and tackling were tremendous throughout the month.”

Richard Hartmann, Director of Hartmann Jewellers added:

“It’s fantastic that Connacht supporters have responded so positively to the new system of public voting for the Player of the Month. They are very passionate about the team they support and can appreciate the hard work put in by the lads week after week.

“Sean is another great signing for the province and it’s great to have the Sligo man back representing his home province.  He has started the season tremendously and added real competition for the number two jersey. We’re delighted he’s been given this award.
