IRISH CENTRE PETER Robb has joined English Championship side Ealing Trailfinders ahead of the 2022/23 season, the Championship club have confirmed.  

Robb spent seven seasons at Connacht, making 49 appearances and playing in the 2016 Pro12 final, before leaving this summer. The 27-year-old previously played five games for the Ireland U20s. 

“I’m extremely happy to be joining Ealing and I can’t wait to link up with my new teammates,” Robb said in a club statement.

“The club are building something special and I’m really looking forward to being part of their project.”

Robb will link up with former Munster hooker Kevin O’Byrne after it was confirmed last month he is also joining the club.

“He is a physical and dangerous player, who will strengthen our squad and add firepower to our attack and defence. We’re delighted Peter has signed for Trailfinders and we’re looking forward to the impact he will make at our club.”
