Austin Sign Tim Fitzgerald

Press Release

Austin Elite Rugby Management announces the signing of Tim Fitzgerald as a loosehead prop for the 2018 Major League Rugby season.

Tim “Fitzy” began playing rugby at age 6. Now 29 years old, 6’1” and 260lbs, he specializes as a loosehead prop. His hometown is Sydney, Australia where he attended high school at nearby St Ignatius College at Riverview, and the University of New South Wales. He has played rugby for Old Sulian’s RFC in Bath, England during 2007, Northern Suburbs RFC in Sydney from 2008-2013, and the US National Champions Austin Huns from 2013-2017.

Of his rugby background, Tim says, “I’ve played every position in the forward pack, but have never played as a back.” He considers this confirmation that from a young age he has been, “ enough to choose brains and brawn over beauty and hair brushes!” In more serious reflection on his upcoming experience with Austin Elite Rugby, he remarks, “I’m excited to be a part of this inaugural Austin Elite Rugby team and to work with the best selection of rugby players, coaches, and support staff in central Texas. This will be my fifth rugby season in Austin, and it has been a pleasure to watch and play in a Union which has made huge leaps and bounds in the standard of play, levels of organization, and the always constant great supporters of rugby in Texas. I am confident this league will take rugby to the next level in the US and the world.”
