FORMER USA RUGBY LEAGUE AND 7’S STAR SIGNS ON FOR RUNY
APRIL 23RD 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – In the midst of what has so far been a stellar RUNY season, the Blue and Orange have pushed forward with the signing of former USA 7’s and USA Rugby League standout Marcus Satavu to help continue their form.
Satavu’s most recent rugby has been in the USA Rugby League playing for the Brooklyn Kings where he has been a dominant force. Satavu, an excellent athlete, also appeared in a number of 7’s tournaments with the USA national side a couple years back which will help him jump right into the quicker pace of pro rugby in America. Satavu plays in the center in league due to his combination of size, speed and finesse but will most likely slide to the wing for RUNY.
Manager James English describes Satavu as an “offensive spark” able to create opportunities out of very little which will help a RUNY side with a number of ongoing, nagging injuries to key back players. With his league background Satavu is no slouch on defense either just as capable of sealing off the edge as he is breaking past it.
Having joined the RUNY camp for training throughout the week I know all Rooster Boosters will look forward to seeing the athleticism of Satavu light up the MLR. Commenting on his addition the Fijian American said: “The boys have all been very welcoming, I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to represent RUNY and it is an honor to be able to be a part of MLR history!”
If you want to see Satavu and your Roosters continue on in their USMLR campaign be sure to get your tickets to our upcoming home game against the Houston Sabercats here.
