The latest player signing for Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club arrives in Suffolk today, fresh from Vienna where he is known for being the the top points scorer for the Austrian national team. Max Navas, who has 34 caps to his name, heads to the Greene King IPA Haberden ready to make the same impact.
Max, 26, who plays at scrum half and fullback has also represented Austria in the national 7s team.
He joins the Wolfpack from New Zealand where he has played for Utiku Old Boys RFC, competing in the Wanganui Premier Division. Prior to this he played for Austrian Premiership club Donau Wien for eight years. Spells at Varsity College RFC and Sharks Academy in South Africa as well as at Premiership Club Berliner Rugby Club in Germany add to his experience. A talented kicker, Max converted over 81% of his kicks during 2016 season.
Head Coach Ollie Smith said, “Max is another excellent addition to the Wolfpack. An experienced player at premiership level in Europe, we look forward to him bringing his point scoring prowess to Bury.”
