The following is a snippet from the Turku Eagles Rugby football club based in Finland where former Bruff RFC player John O’Callaghan is now plying his trade.
Primary Position: Blindside Flanker
John was an answer to Jussi’s prayers from the rugby gods. They had asked for an experienced loose forward and that’s what the Eagles got in the spring of 2015. As a player John is a threat to any Finnish pack. His wit and eye for the game teach the most experienced Eagles something in every game. A force to be reckoned with.
Secondary Positions: Number 8
Awards: Forward of the Year 2015
We wish John continued success with his playing career in Finland and who knows he might possibly bring a touring team from the Turku Eagles to Kilballyowen sometime in the near future.
