After last week’s announcement of Sue Neumann’s “Bamboo of the Year” award in the women’s category, we are delighted to congratulate Alex Onyeahasi for winning the prize in the men’s section.
Alex has joined the Bamboos in 2017 and has since then impressed with his consistent commitment and strong desire to mark his place in the team. He has played in all tournaments since his introduction and attended most training sessions.
During the 15s season, the quick-stepping and versatile backline player has been signed by Bristol’s topflight club Clifton RFC before joining Neckarsulm SU, a German Premiership team, together with fellow Bamboo Alex Cox in September this year.
Both players are former Hartpury students and are now enjoying life in the south of Germany. After a difficult start to the season, the team has recently secured two important wins in a tough competition.
Earlier this year, Alex was also part of the touring side Bataillon d’ Bamboos, a corporation between 7 Bamboos RFC and the countries biggest invitational team Bataillon d' Amour.
The team competed at the home tournament of Alex's new club in Neckarsulm, which the tourists finished in 3rd position, and a welcoming opportunity for the speedster to get a first-hand experience of German rugby.
We wish Alex best of luck for the remaining season and are excited to see him back in Green next summer.
