James Loxton is delighted with his move to Connacht
Connacht have signed Matthew Jarvis and James Loxton with the Welsh U20 pair joining the Irish side next season.
Jarvis, who can play at 10, 12 or 15, joins Connacht from the Ospreys, while utility back Loxton has been signed from the Cardiff Blues.
"I've enjoyed my time with Cardiff but once I had the opportunity to play for Connacht in Ireland, it was one I couldn't refuse," said Loxton.
"Connacht have big plans for the future and I want to be part of that vision."
Added Loxton: "They play an open, expansive and exciting brand of rugby which will suit my game as a wing/full-back.
"My mother was born in Crossmolina, County Mayo, I go on holiday there every summer and I'm delighted at the prospect of playing professional rugby where my ancestors were born and bred."
