Player Bio

Background

Connellan joined the Saints as a Category B International Rookie ahead of the 2017 AFL season.

A Gaelic football star from Westmeath, Connellan was part of Ireland’s International Rules series squad in 2015.

The 23-year-old has pace to burn, registering a 2.78 second 20-metre sprint, 0.03 seconds of the AFL Combine record.

After spending the majority of his first year learning the caper at half-back, Connellan moved forward late in the year where his explosive speed off the mark and defensive efforts were well suited.
