Connacht announce Cannon signing


Connacht have signed lock James Cannon from Wasps.

Cannon is an Irish qualified lock who played 93 games in six seasons at Wasps and was part of the England Under-20s Grand Slam-winning squad of 2008.

Having agreed terms with the province, Cannon was named in Connacht's European Champions Cup squad.

"I'm very excited about the new challenge in Connacht and look forward to working hard to try to get more first team opportunities and to play my part within the squad," Cannon said.

Head coach Pat Lam added: "James has been part of a competitive mix of second row players at Wasps but has shown his talent when given the chance. He brings a vast amount of experience from playing in both the Aviva Premiership and European Champions Cup and will greatly boost our second row options. We're all looking forward to welcoming him to Connacht Rugby."
