Oskar Hirskyj-Douglas joins the Club

Blackheath Rugby is thrilled to announce the signing of Oskar Hirskyj-Douglas, a Centre who joins us from Sale FC. 

James Shanahan, Director of Rugby, says “I’ve known Oskar from his time at Bedford Blues and now Sale FC. A big, physical centre who can get teams on the front foot. He comes with huge experience and I can’t wait to see him in a club shirt.”

Russell Ticehurst, Managing Director, echoes these sentiments, and says “We are delighted to welcome ex-Loughborough, Bedford Blues and Sale FC centre Oskar  Hirskyj-Douglas to Blackheath. Some of you may recognise Oskar from previous encounters against Sale, but one thing’s for sure: he brings some solid rugby experience to our midfield for this coming season, and we are pleased he chose Blackheath when he moved to London. He started his rugby at back row and had a spell at Wasps, so we are certain he will fill the gap left by Mark Cooke with similar grit and commitment. I’m looking forward to Oskar’s contributions on and off the pitch for Club, and look forward to seeing him at the Utilita very soon”

Oskar is looking forward to running out with Blackheath “I’m really excited to get going with Blackheath, it’s a club that I have played against many times and always had a good game! Moving down to London it was the first club that sprung to mind, so it was an easy choice. The current player group has a few familiar faces who I’m looking forward to reconnecting with on the pitch, and hopefully playing some good rugby.”

We’re looking forward to seeing you on the pitch too, Oskar. Welcome to The Club!
