NIALL MURRAY and FINLAY BEALHAM on URC ELITE XV
Two Buccaneers players NIALL MURRAY and FINLAY BEALHAM have been selected on the BKY United Rugby Championship’s Elite XV for the 2022/23 season. This is a wonderful honour for the Connacht duo. Murray led the league for lineout steals with 17 while prop Bealham, who played key role in Ireland’s grand slam Six Nations success, joins him in this squad. Proud of ye, guys.
