Exciting winger Alex O’Meara, a member of last season’s England Students squad, has joined the Pirates’ Player Development Foundation (PDF).
Alex follows in the footsteps of fly-half/full-back Will Cargill, another England Student who signed for us back in May
He likes to play expansive rugby and has been playing 7s for England IPF this summer. He has also featured for The Wailers in all the GB Sevens tournaments in 2015, besides featuring for Hartpury who won this year's BUCS 7s Championship.
His development as a player comes thanks to John Barnes, Senior Rugby Head Coach at Hartpury College for whom he played in both the National Leagues and the BUCS League.
Pleased to secure Alex’s signature, Ian Davies Director of Rugby said:
“Alex is an exciting player who I am sure will flourish in the full-time environment. He joins us from Hartpury and will be part of the PDF group."
"Alex has scored tries at National One level and was also a key player for England Students this season so he will add to our exciting back-line options.”
