Boston the Perfect Fit for Leader as his MLR Journey Continues


Recently announced as one of the Boston Free Jacks major signings as the new MLR franchise prepares to join the league in 2020, Leader is returning to an area where he already has history. Having coached at the Boston Irish Wolfhounds when first moving to the States, Leader is excited for what his future in Massachusetts holds.

“I always knew that if something was happening in Boston, I wanted to be involved as I loved my time there,” said Leader. 

“Moving back to Boston means I’m just five hours from Ireland and I have a lot more of a family network, so I knew it was somewhere that I’d like to settle.”

The Boston franchise is being headed up by USA Rugby stalwart Alex Magleby. With extensive experience on the USA Sevens programme, as well as in the 15-a-side game, Leader is confident that his new team will be successful.
