The New England Free Jacks have added Sean McNulty for the 2019 season. The 23-year-old hooker is 6’2″ and 245 lbs.
Sean was born in London to Irish parents and only moved to Rye, New York when he was 1. He regards Dublin, Ireland as his hometown.
He moved to Bahrain when he was 10 in 2006 and began playing rugby at Bahrain RFC. He went to boarding school at Rockwell College from 2007-2013and played rugby with the first team from 2011-2013. The team won the Munster Schools Senior Cup and he represented Munster on age grade teams and for Ireland Schoolboys.
Sean then moved back to Dublin and attended University College Dublin, earning a Diploma in Business and Sports Management. He represented Ireland at Under-19s and U19 Sevens, as well as Ireland Under-20s for two consecutive years in 2014 and 2015. He currently is pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Hertforshire in Business and Sports Management.
He played Leinster Academy from 2015-2018, playing mainly in the British and Irish Cup with Leinster ‘A’ and made five senior appearances in Pre Season games.
Sean is anxious to begin playing with FreeJacks in 2019. He is expected to be part of the Cara Cup squad which begins on March 16. The team will open against the Connacht Eagles and then play the Ulster Ravens, Munster A and then Leinster A. The series should be meaningful, as he will play against many players in which he is familiar with and also against former teammates.
