John featured for the USA at the Rugby World Cup over the past few weeks. The Youghal native qualifies to play for the USA though his mother, Eileen, who hails from America.
John played in three of his side’s games at the RWC- making an appearance from the bench versus Scotland before returning to the starting line-up to face South Africa and coming on in the final game against Japan.
John made his US debut at the 2012 autumn internationals, earning his first cap against Russia.
His previous clubs include Youghal, Dolphin, Munster, Boston RFC and London Welsh- who he achieved promotion to the Aviva Premiership with.
John has done both his family and his town proud. He looks set to have a great career in the sport.
