Houston SaberCats added Van Stewart for the remainder of the 2020 Major League Rugby season. The 22-year-old flanker/lock is 6’4″ and 230lbs.
Van is from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia and attended St. Luke’s Grammar School. He is U.Seligible trough his mother. He played rugby juniors at Seaforth Raiders, then with the Manly Colts in 2016 before advancing to the first-grade Manly Marlins team in 2019. His athleticism all over the field, as well as lineout play, will be an asset for the SaberCats in 2020.
Van is expected to make his debut against Rugby United New York this weekend.
