Ealing Trailfinders have confirmed the signing of Canadian international Shane O’Leary from Connacht.
The fly-half arrives at Vallis Way with four caps for his country and will add competition to the likes of Aaron Penberthy and Rory Clegg.
O’Leary made his debut for Canada against Georgia in June, and featured in all four of their matches during the Summer International Series.
The 24-year-old has been with Connacht since 2014 where he made 22 appearances. Before heading to Ireland he spent a season in the Top 14 for Grenoble, where he featured on five occasions for the French side.
He has also represented Canada at U20s level, and graduated from the Munster age grade system in his native Ireland as a teenager.
He said: “It’s a great facility and it’s been an easy transition to life here. As soon as I heard that Ealing were interested I was really keen so I’m hugely excited to get involved.”
Director of Rugby Ben Ward commented: “Shane is a great prospect and we are delighted to have him on board. He has plenty of experience and we’re confident that he will be a success in the Championship.”
