Jack Conan (born 29 July 1992) is an Irish rugby union player for Leinster Rugby. His preferred position is number 8. He made his senior debut in February 2014 against the Cardiff Blues.[1] Conan was promoted to the Leinster senior squad for the 2014/15 season, one year ahead of scheduled completion of the academy.[2] Conan was named man-of-the-match for his performance against Ulster on 3 January 2015,[3] in a game where he led all forwards with 40 meters gained and 8 defenders beaten.[4]

On January 22, 2015 he was one of only two uncapped players included in the extended Ireland rugby squad for the 2015 Six Nations Championship. On 13 August 2015, he was named in the Ireland team to face Scotland in a 2015 Rugby World Cup warm-up match.[5][6]
