WITH THE TAIL END OF THE SEASON IN SIGHT RUNY CONTINUE TO BOLSTER SQUAD FOR PLAYOFF PUSH
The business end of the MLR’s second season has not disappointed thus far as 6 of the MLR’s 9 teams are all within 10 points of each other with an equal chance of making the final four. 1st could slip to 6th and vice versa. So with the standings so close RUNY has brought in New England Freejacks 2nd Rower Jackson Thiebes to ensure the Blue and Orange finish as strong as possible.
Hailing from Kalispell Montana, Thiebes was a big football prospect but made the transition to the beautiful game in high school. In college at the University of Montana his love for rugby began to overtake football and by the time he was getting his MBA at Endicott College in Massachusetts, Thiebes had become a top player in the Northeastern region. As the New England Freejacks began their exhibition season Thiebes was quick to be noticed due to his share size, physicality and ability to move around the pitch for a second rower.
Bringing in a talented player like Thiebes is huge for RUNY as the big man is able to both strengthen our pack and get his first taste of the MLR before his New England debut next season. On his move to the city Thiebes stated: “Joining RUNY has been an amazing experience and learning from some of the top players in the country has benefitted my game greatly. I look forward to the coming weeks and seeing what this team can do.”
