Shayne Bolton

  • Connacht Rugby have further boosted their options for next season with the signing of versatile, Irish-qualified South African Shayne Bolton.
    Bolton, whose grandmother is from Dublin, will arrive at Connacht with a reputation as one of the brightest young prospects in South African rugby. The 20-year old represents the University of Free State in the Varsity Cup and also impressed in the U21 SA Championship.
    A powerful and skillful ball carrier, his ability to play centre and anywhere across the back three will be a major boost to Andy Friend’s side heading into next season.
