Connacht are looking to sign two Leinster players for next season.

Scrumhalf Ben Murphy has made fourteen appearances for the Blues, including three appearances in the Champions Cup.

The 23-year-old is a former Ireland under-20 international and also spent time in Munster, where he was deployed to provide injury cover.

He is also a son of Richie Murphy, who is currently Ulster’s interim senior coach.

Also 23 and a former under-20 international, Lasisi is an academy prop who can play on both the loosehead and tighthead sides. He played twice for the Leinster senior team.

“In Ben and Temi we have signed two promising players in key positions,” said Connacht boss Pete Wilkins.

“Ben has already racked up important minutes for Leinster at URC and Champions Cup level, and he will provide both competition and depth to our scrum-half position.
