We congratulate Charlie Tector on his recent involvement in the Irish U20 6 Nations games. Charlie started against Wales in Ireland’s 50 point win in Cork and then the following week he kicked the winning conversion of a last minute try in a tense game to give the Irish side a famous away win in France.

Charlie started his rugby in the minis section of Enniscorthy RFC before playing 5 years of Schools Cup rugby in Kilkenny College, 2 years at JCT level and 3 years at SCT level. Charlie currently plays his rugby for Lansdowne FC and is involved in the age grade Leinster Rugby programme.

Charlie was a talented player from his first day in first year but more importantly he was a hard working, dedicated and respectful young man during his time in Kilkenny College. We acknowledge all the work that Charlie, his coaches and indeed his team mates, teachers and boarding staff contributed during his time in Kilkenny College and we wish Charlie continued success during this years 6 Nations and in his future rugby career.

It is a fantastic achievement to represent your country and we have no doubt that Charlie will continue to represent himself, his family, his clubs and his school with pride and distinction in the remaining games.
