San Diego Legion signed Pat Lynott for the 2022 Major League Rugby season. The 26-year-old loosehead prop is 5’10” and 260 lbs.
Pat played 544 minutes in 13 matches, starting 5, for the Toronto Arrows in 2021.
In 2020, Pat played in four matches, carrying twice for 5 meters and making 12 tackles. During 2019, he played 182 minutes in 10 matches, starting once, made 26 tackles, and carried 15 times for 75 meters.
Pat is from Chelsea, Quebec, which is north of Ottawa. He played rugby at Philemon Wright High School. Following his graduation, he pursued several avenues before attending Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He played there for the past four years, serving as a captain the past two, and will be graduating with a degree in Global Development and Wealth Studies in April. The team was OUA Men’s Rugby Champions in 2017.
Pat plays club rugby with the Bytown Blues Rugby Club. He has played representative rugby with Eastern Ontario in 2016 and for the Ontario Blues.
Pat is not a stranger to the Arrows organization, as he has played with the team in exhibition matches since its inception in 2017. With the Arrows having multiple players on international duty with Canada and Uruguay, the team needed some cover at prop and called on Pat to join the Arrows again prior to the MLR match with Austin Elite Rugby.
