John Quill

Quill hails from Youghal in County Cork, Ireland. He started playing representative rugby with the Munster U19 team and was a part of the academy for 3 years. Due to his strong performances, Quill was selected for the Ireland U19 team. At the conclusion of his contract with the Munster, Quill started looking for options abroad.

He joined Boston RFC after moving to the Northeast in 2012. His first international appearance came later that fall, when he debuted against Russia that November. He made the decision to return to his home club, Dolphin, for 2013, and parlayed that into a contract with the London Welsh for the 2014 season. During that time, he helped the organization secure promotion to the English Premiership.

2015 was banner year for Quill, as the Irishman was selected for his first World Cup. After a strong tournament, Quill joined the now-defunct Sacramento Express. He captained the side in their only year in existence before moving out to Denver. He joined the Glendale Raptors in 2016, and was with the side for 2 seasons, including the inaugural MLR season. Quill earned first team honors in the MLR Championship Series accolades.
