New England Free Jacks Comments
This week, the Free Jacks added Cam Davidowicz to the wider training squad for the remainder of the 2021 Major League Rugby Season. Davidowicz joins the Free Jacks as a standout at Mystic River where he has demonstrated his versatility across the back row, strength over the ball, and explosive ball-carrying ability.
“Run it, lift it, hit it, shift it. On to the next job,” noted Cam.
“The Mystic community is ecstatic for Cam to be called into the Free Jacks playing group,” commented Kayne Bubb, Mystic River Head Coach. “He is a special talent no doubt and has certainly grown as a man and a player over the last few seasons. He is a real threat to both sides of the ball and was outstanding for Mystic during the Spring season, his game is coming together nicely.”
“We look forward to seeing Cam take his game to new heights through spending time within the Free Jacks environment and learning from quality back-rowers like Joe Johnston and Wian Conradie. Cam is certainly capable of playing at the next level and we are excited to see where this opportunity leads.”
“We are looking forward to bringing Cam into our daily training environment where he will challenge our back-rowers for a spot on the 23 over the next few weeks,” commented Performance Manager, Tom Kindley. “We have been keenly monitoring Cam’s progress through means of reviewing club footage and speaking to [his]coaches. As soon as the league’s COVID protocols allowed, Cam was the first player we extended an invitation to based on his outstanding club form. A player who has all the physical attributes, time in the saddle could see him become a quality MLR player in years to come.”
