Nottingham Sign Liam O’Neill

ONeillNottingham Rugby is delighted to announce the signing of Liam O'Neill ahead of the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season.

O'Neill, 20, joins the club having spent the second half of the last campaign at London Welsh having moved on to them from the London Wasps Academy.

Liam played for the London Wasps AASE at Henley College for two years between the ages of 16 and 18, before graduating into the club's Academy, while on loan at Henley Hawks.

He helped Henley to National League One success in 2013, while gaining further experience in the Aviva A League with Wasps. Liam was also selected in Wasps' squad for J.P. Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s at Twickenham in 2013.

Born in Oxford, Liam played his club rugby at Stratford upon Avon from the age of 13 to 16. He attended Southam College, playing for Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, South West Under 16 and Midlands Under 18.

Commenting on his move, O'Neill said, "I was looking for a fresh start and Nottingham was a club that interested me a lot.  I'd heard very good things about Martin Haag and was keen to play under his management.

"I'm looking to get as much game time as possible to continue my development and I'm looking forward to the new experience of a new city and a new club.  Nottingham as a club should be pushing for the top four and it'll be good to be part of the squad."

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag said, "We have been looking for another winger to add competition and strength in depth in that position.

"Liam has been involved with Wasps as an academy player and has more recently been part of the successful London Welsh team.

"I've been impressed with Liam's attitude and he has the physical attributes needed for a winger in the Championship so I'm very happy that he has agreed to choose Nottingham to continue his rugby journey."
