Why are Lansdowne RFC top of the AIL Rugby table by a country mile with 49 tries scored – when nearest rival Clontarf have scored just 26?
The answer could be 23 year old Craig Ronaldson. The league’s runaway top point scorer has now signed a contract that will bring him to Galway for Connacht next year.
Despite the loss of coach Eric Elwood – new coach Pat lam arrived in Galway this morning – there is no doubt that the province is still thinking big.
Connacht CEO Tom Sears said: “Craig has consistently demonstrated in the AIL that he has all the ability to make the step up and we have no doubt he will thrive in a professional environment. He is a player we have watched closely for some time and he now has an opportunity to develop his undoubted talent and fulfil his potential.”
