Shayne Bolton signs two-year deal
Connacht Rugby are delighted to confirm Shayne Bolton has re-committed to the province with a 2-year deal.
The Irish-qualified South African joined the club in 2021 and is enjoying a breakthrough season at Connacht. He started a run of 6 games on the wing over the Christmas period, scoring 2 tries, and proved to be a fan favourite with his powerful carries and lightning speed.
In total he has played 11 times for the club and will now remain at Dexcom Stadium until at least 2026.
Head coach Pete Wilkins says:
“We’re delighted with the progress Shayne has made this season and he is rightly establishing himself in the team as a fast and powerful option on the wing. I am excited about his potential for further development over the next two years and he is another great example of the type of player that our supporters are so excited to watch and get behind.”
