CONNACHT are likely to lose lock Aly Muldowney to Grenoble in the summer, it is understood.

Coming hard on the heels of Robbie Henshaw’s decision to throw his lot in with Leinster next season, it would leave a hole in Pat Lam’s side, given that both players are team leaders.

Muldowney, who will be 33 in August, signed for Connacht in 2013 from Exeter on a three year deal.

Since then, he has become a go-to player for them, with 65 games to his credit, most recently the

win over Edinburgh in Murrayfield on Friday night. Connacht are the only Irish side remaining in Europe, and coincidentally will be away to Grenoble in the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup next month.
