Robin Copeland en route to France as he confirms Connacht’s departure


Robin Copeland has confirmed that he is leaving Connacht to join the French club ProD2 Soyaux Angoulême XV Charente for a three-year contract.

This appears to be the last relay station for Wexford number eight, whose career began at Leinster Academy and hosted Plymouth Albion, Rotherham Titans, Cardiff Blues and Munster before joining Connacht two seasons ago.

Announcing his decision on his Twitter feed, Copeland said, “One adventure ends and another begins. I loved my stay in Galway with Connacht rugby, but unfortunately my stay there ended, good memories and great people!

“From the moment I got to the door, it felt like home, and the atmosphere that the coaches, staff and players create is one of the best I have ever had. I really liked going to work every day, even when things didn’t go as planned, which, of course, in sports, they rarely do. “
