We are delighted to announce the signing of Ryan Carlson for the 2020/21 season. Ryan is an exciting back row talent who was selected in the Rugby Paper’s N2N team of the season after a string of outstanding performances in a difficult year for Preston Grasshoppers. He is a proud old boy of Pretoria Boys High School, a great SA rugby nursery in Johannesburg which also produced 2007 RWC winning captain John Smit. From school, Ryan progressed to captain the Blue Bulls U19s and then to top Durban club side College Rovers whilst also being involved in the Natal Sharks U21 Academy. In his first full season with College Rovers, the club retained the provincial league and cup double and were runners up in the Gold Cup, South Africa’s premier club competition.
Ryan is a terrific addition to the squad and we know that all supporters will look forward to seeing him run out in the green shirt!
