Connacht’s Tim Allnutt presented new signing Ezra Taylor with his Connacht jersey at the Sportsground, Galway today.

Ezra joins Connacht after a successful year playing Super 14 rugby with the Queensland Reds.

The 27 year old former New Zealand Schools and U19 player joins the Connacht team as Coach Eric Elwood puts the final touches to his squad for the upcoming season.

Taylor, who usually plays at no 8 or flanker, can also play 2nd row and the 1.93m 111kg Kiwi will be looking to get stuck straight into training with the Magners League kicking off in early September. Ezra joins fellow New Zealanders Troy Nathan, Miah Nikora, and Bernie Upton in a settled Connacht side that has seen the majority of players re-signing for the Province which with along with new Defence Coach Mike Forshaw and new Backs Coach Brian Melrose gives the Westerners every chance of building on last years success.
