Nick Pearce #10 Class 2.5
Nick Pearce is a transfer player from Denver. We have played against him from the beginning but he filled in for us a few times in the 2018 season as a guest player. In 2019 they changed a rule where if you are having conflict of interest with you local team you can request transfer to one of the nearest teams. The Denver Harlequins have been in the top three ranked teams in D1 rugby for several year. They bring in international players and Team USA players move there to play. So he had very little court time. Well us Bombers have a dwindling team so we are grateful to have a high pointer on the team. He fits in well with the team and handles all of our travel arrangements.

Logan Fuller joinded the Bombers this season as a new player from the Denver area without a team. He will get his classification at the Easter Semifinals. Logan is also an avid down hill skier. He brings youth and confidence to the Bombers. And he also hasn't written me a bio....
