Gavin Thornbury renews for next season

Lock Gavin Thornbury has renewed his contract for the 2023/24 season, the club can confirm.

The 29 year old joined the club in 2017 and has made 71 appearances for the province. In November he was also called into the Ireland ‘A’ squad for the fixture against the All Blacks XV.

Andy Friend, Director of Rugby says:

“Gavin is an excellent second rower and he adds a lot to the excellent depth we have in that position. The injury in Brive was very unfortunate but he’s progressing well with his rehab and I’m sure he’ll play a big part in next season’s campaign.”

Gavin Thornbury says:

“I’m pleased to be able to commit to Connacht for another season. It’s been my home for many years now and I’m looking forward to returning to full fitness and working with Pete and the new coaching team next season.”
