Old Glory DC Comments
“We’re really pleased with Jack’s progress in 2021,” said Head Coach Andrew Douglas. “It was his first time playing rugby since high school, and he progressed very well. Jack is a quick learner and very coachable, he’s very good around the field, and his set-piece grew during the season. After spending three months playing rugby (for Clontarf) in Ireland, I’m sure his game has gone to the next level, and we’re looking forward to watching him play in 2022.”
“I’m fired up to be returning to DC for 2022,” said Jack on returning to Old Glory. “The men have been working hard, and we are excited to give our amazing fans a great season.”
