Athlone's Carty Named In USA Rugby Squad For Summer Tests

He's made a big impression since moving to LA.

Luke Carty has been named in an extended 41 man squad for USA Rugby's summer tests. 

The former Buccaneers and Connacht out-half qualifies for the Eagles through his grandmother. 

The 23 year-old will compete with Dubliner Ed McGinty for the starting jersey for their games against Ireland and England in July. 

Carty has been plying his trade with the LA Giltini's in Major League Rugby since the turn of the year alongside the likes of Matt Giteau and Adam Ashley-Cooper, winning plaudits locally for his impact in the 10 shirt.
