Video – Pete Wilkins talks about his 3 year contract with Connacht.
As expected Pete Wilkins has signed a three-year deal and will assume overall responsibility for the Professional team from next season. Let’s hope we see John Muldoon announced as part of his back room team in the coming weeks. #rugby #connacht

Willie Ruane, CEO of Connacht Rugby said: “Following a thorough process run in conjunction with the IRFU, Pete emerged as the successful candidate to lead our Professional rugby setup over the next three years. He is an excellent coach with extensive knowledge of the club and wider province and understands the needs of our squad and our system to help drive the success we are all striving for. He has demonstrated considerable growth as a coach and as a leader throughout his time here at Connacht and we believe he is the right person to now take the group forward.”
Pete sat down with the media team at Connacht to speak in-depth about his upcoming announcement as Head Coach, his vision for the new role, and his personal experience over the last six years living in the Province. You can watch it by clicking the button below.
