There is big things happening in US Rugby these days and Lansdowne man Mark O’Keefe seems to be enjoying his Rugby at RUNY playing in the Major League Rugby, now in it’s second year.
RUNY are lying fifth in the Major League standings – https://www.usmlr.com/stats-standings/ – with 9 games played. They have a win / loss ration of 7 to 2.
Mark is one of many Irishmen currently plying their trade with US Clubs. He is fortunate enough to be playing alongside former Sale Sharks and England player Ben Foden. New York have also imported talent from overseas in the guise of Scottish Prop Callum Mackintosh, fellow Dubliner and former Leinster fly-half Cathal Marsh aswell as former Cork Constitution & Dolphin Prop James Rochford, twice Bateman Cup winner with Con.
