Connacht Rugby have signed one of the more impressive Irish players on show at the World Cup. Dublin-born AJ MacGinty impressed for his adopted national team - The US Eagles playing at outhalf in the World Cup.
MacGinty moved to America three years ago, and made his international debut before the World Cup. The former Blackrock scrumhalf started three games for America, and joins the Westerners for the rest of the season.
MacGinty counts as a non-Irish eligible member of the Connacht squad, and will add depth to a squad that has just started a brutal 16 week stretch that will include a trip to Siberia to play Enesei STM in the Challenge Cup.
MacGinty isn't the only World Cup star that an Irish province is looking to sign. Munster have brought in Uruguayan prop Mario Sagario in on a trial. Sagario played in Uruguay's World Cup campaign, and has done enough to earn a trial with Anthony Foley's men.
