On Tuesday night at the Sydney Hilton, Will McDonnell was named the Rookie of the Year for 2018. “Willo” has had a fantastic season for SUFC and it’s great it’s been recognised at a higher level.

After winning the 2nd Grade Premiership last year, he went on to make his 1st Grade debut in round 1. His potential was also noticed by the NSW Waratahs who took him on their midyear tour to Japan when he represented his state against the NEC Green Rockets. 

Willo is now part of the NSW Country Eagles team competing in the NRC. 

Congratulations on a stellar season Willo, here’s to many more!
