USA under 20s and Life University second rower or number 8 Christian Ostberg has signed on for the 2014/15 season with Italian club Alghero Rugby.
Ostberg, who has an EU passport, was highly sort after with his giant 200cm and 114kg frame. The opportunity to experience rugby outside of America and in such a nice part of the world was to good to turn down for the 20 year old. The club is based on the island of Sardinia off the West Coast of Italy and plays in the mainland Serie B competition.
After coming from a basketball and American Football background, Ostberg made the switch to rugby towards the end of highschool where he has found the transfer of skills from his previous sports to be of great benefit. In a heavily forward dominant game in Italy we are sure that Christian will be able to really develop into a top class player and should be earmarked as a USA Eagles player of the future.
