Fainga’a to join Connacht


Connacht have announced the signing of Colby Fainga’a from Australian Super Rugby side the Melbourne Rebels.

The versatile back row made his Super Rugby debut for the Brumbies in 2010 and spent four years with the club before joining the Rebels in 2014, going on to be named the Players' Player of the Year in his first season.

Connacht head coach Andy Friend handed Fainga'a his Super Rugby debut and he is looking forward to welcoming him to the province at the conclusion of the Super Rugby season.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Colby Fainga’a ahead of the new season," Friend commented.

"When I was Head Coach at the Brumbies, Colby signed his first professional contract with the club, so I have an in-depth knowledge of the qualities he brings. With 100 Super Rugby appearances under his belt, Colby brings massive experience.

"In addition to his versatility on the field he has a fantastic attitude off it and will be a big addition to Connacht in the seasons ahead.”
