Bears snap up BUCS front-row trio

BUCS front row trio Fred Davies, Martin Mulhall and Rhys Charalambous will join the Bears ahead of the 2022/23 season, the club can confirm.

University of Durham hooker Davies is the leading try scorer in the BUCS Super League and recently broke the competition record for tries scored during a single season.

Loosehead prop Mulhall has represented Ireland Students and joins from Swansea University, while Leeds Beckett prop Charalambous – who can play on both sides of the front row – also signs.

“The progress and development of Fitz Harding, as well as other players in the Gallagher Premiership, has shown us the talent that can be found and developed in the BUCS competition,” said Director of Rugby, Pat Lam.

“A key part of the Bears recruitment strategy is to find the players that have been missed through the conventional Academy pathways – we believe there are good opportunities to recruit mature young players who can make the step up.

“Fred, Martin and Rhys have enjoyed fantastic seasons in BUCS Super Rugby and have earned the opportunity to integrate with the first team squad next season.”
