The 20 year-old had a big impact and is seen to be a top prospect in the County having already achieved a full senior county cap.
Billingham Head Coach Peter Evans was delighted with the latest addition to his squad: “We’re pleased to have Kieran on board. Kieran is a strong scrummager and has a reputation of being destructive in the loose Kieran wants to challenge himself in a league a couple levels higher than he has been. Which is great we don’t tend to chase players, they need to want to be a part of the club to succeed.
Fortunately he has played county rugby for the past few seasons so the step up shouldnt be a problem. As with most clubs he’s knows he has a fight for the shirt on his hands. The good thing about Billingham is we provide an environment to express yourself. Whether that be in training or a game situation he will get a chance to show his capabilities at some point. We have a gruelling pre season set up and playing 3 teams in higher leagues so it promises to be a tough start for us all. ”
