“We of course wish him all the best for the future and thank him for his contribution to the club. However, there is still just under half a season to go for us all and we envisage him playing his part between now and the end of the season.”
Muldowney,added: “It was a tough decision to leave the Chiefs because I have really enjoyed my time at the club.
“Since coming to Exeter I feel my game has come on leaps and bounds, especially working with Rob [Baxter], Ali [Hepher], Ricky [Pellow] and all the other coaches. Also the support I’ve received from everyone, especially the supporters, has been amazing.
“Moving to Connacht, though, is a great opportunity for me and my family. I have watched them play in the Heineken Cup this year and they are a really tough side with some great players.
“Having played against them before whilst at Glasgow I know that they are tough opponents, so I’m really looking forward to being a part of the team and adding what I can. It’s also an exciting time for the club also with a new Head Coach in Pat Lam coming in.”
