The Seattle Seawolves signed David Busby for the 2020 Major League Rugby season. The 25-year-old (26 in Feb.) wing/fullback is 6’0″ and 200lbs.
David is from Portadown, Northern Ireland and attended Portadown College and Queen’s University.
In 2011 he joined Ulster’s U20 Academy and won the Interprovincial Championship in 2012. He then moved to Australia for a year and played for Brother’s Rugby Club. He returned home to attend Queen’s University and played for the Ireland U20s in the age-grade Six Nations.
David played for Ulster in the PRO 14 competition, the Ireland Sevens Team in several tournaments in 2016-2017, including the Exeter Super Sevens Series. In 2019 he helped Ballynahinch win the All Ireland League Division 1B Championship, which earned the team promotion for 2019-2020.
Seattle Seawolves Comments
With the ability to set others up or back himself with the ball in hand, the Busby’s dynamic standard will fit right in with the Seawolves backline.
“I’m really excited to be joining such a successful club with top quality players,” said Busby. “Really looking forward to linking up with the squad and working hard to bring another championship back to Seattle”.
