Centre Townshend added to Wild Geese squad.

By Miriam Brown

New signing 2019/2020

Wild Geese Director of Rugby, Eddie Fraher has announced the signing of former Ealing Academy and CS Stags centre, Luca Townshend for this season.

Fraher said “ Luca worked with John at Ealing and will bring a physical presence to the midfield, he’s a fit, strong lad who runs hard and defends well. He’ll go really well for us and we’re looking forward to seeing him play during our preseason programme and beyond”.

On his signing, Luca commented “After playing for John with the Academy at Ealing Trailfinders and having had a mixed year at CS Stags, due to work commitments, last season was a washout really.

I’ve really interested to hear about the clubs plans and take up the opportunity to join the Wild Geese.

I’m looking forward to pushing on with the team through pre season and challenging for a 1st team shirt”

There will be further squad news this week as well as confirmation of our preseason matches.
