In just his second season at the club and indeed in a professional environment, the 25-year-old has become a regular starter in Pat Lam’s side, starting 15 of the 17 games he’s appeared in this campaign. Last month the Nigerian born winger, who joined Connacht in 2014 from club side Trinity, started all four games and crossed for a brace of tries in each of the games against Grenoble and Munster.
Commenting on the April Player of the Month, Team Manager Tim Allnutt said:
“It’s great to see Niyi picking up his first Player of the Month award. He’s put in a huge amount of work since he joined us and it’s phenomenal to see the improvements he’s made as he transitioned to a professional and highly demanding environment. He was a pivotal player in our back line last month and continues to be as we look to finish the season on a massive high.”
Richard Hartmann, Director of Hartmann Jewellers added:
“We were delighted to have Niyi in this week picking out his new Seiko watch. He’s been one of the players to watch this season in a very exciting Connacht back line and has really become a fan favourite.”
