Fox-Matamua signs Connacht contract
25 Mar 2015 09:09
Connacht and the IRFU have announced the recruitment of back-row forward Nepia Fox-Matamua for next season.
-
The New Zealand-born flanker, who has played for ITM Cup side Auckland, has signed a two-year deal with the Irish province.
-
Debuting for Auckland in 2012, Fox-Matamua returned to the provincial squad in 2014 after a year-long spell with North Harbour, where he also played sevens rugby.
-
The 23-year-old will arrive at Connacht for the beginning of the pre-season period in June.
-
Connacht head coach Pat Lam said: "We're delighted to be in a position to announce Nepia. With Willie (Faloon) returning to Ulster, another quality openside flanker was needed for next season's squad.
-
"I have worked with Nepia at Auckland. He is a great team man and having captained different sides in his young career, he also possesses excellent leadership qualities.
-
"Technically he is an out-and-out number seven with natural ball skills that have seen him excel in sevens rugby as well.
-
"I know that he is the type of player and person that will fit in very well to the Connacht community."
