Rugby Union: Newcastle Falcons Expands Their Roster as They Sign London Irish Scrum-Half Hugh O’Sullivan
The Newcastle Falcons have made a crucial addition to their roster by signing 25-year-old Irishman Hugh O’Sullivan from the London Irish team on a two-year deal.
O’Sullivan’s move to the club is an exciting one for him, citing that he has been watching the club over the past couple of seasons and sees massive potential in them. With his experience as a scrum-half, he will be instrumental in bringing technical expertise into the team’s gameplay.
In his statement with bewinner website, he expressed excitement working with head coach Alex Codling again whom he worked with before during his Ireland Under-18s team. He says it will be an exciting time working under such great guidance; this rekindles memories of their good times together which makes it easier for him to adapt and integrate well into the new system at St James’ Park.
The move comes amid preparations for next season where teams are bolstering up their rosters ahead of what promises to be another competitive Rugby campaign in England. The new signing brings needed depth to support current players like Joel Hodgson and Michael Young effectively while also competing fiercely against other teams in general play.
The signing of O’Sullivan marks yet another significant milestone towards improving Newcastle Falcon’s squad depth ahead of next season. With his addition to the team, the Falcons can look forward to better fortunes on the pitch next season.
