Callum Black

25th Feb 1986 1.80m/106kg Loosehead Prop

An American born prop of Belfast lineage, Black’s grandfather hailed from Belfast.

Born in Washington, but raised in England, Black represented Ireland from U 18 up to U 21 level, meaning he is still eligible for selection to the American Senior side. Black began his career at Worcester, where he played 21 times in four years. In 2011, Black joined Ulster.

Callum is a strong scrummager with an outstanding work rate around the park. He signed a 3 year deal with Ulster late in 2014. His new contract means that he will be at Kingspan Stadium until at least the summer of 2018.

During his time in Northern Ireland, Black has made 141 appearances which has seen the prop reach the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup in 2013 and 2014, and the final in 2012.

He was also part of a side which made it to the semi-finals of the then Pro 12 in four successive seasons from 2013 to 2016, losing out in the final of 2013.

In February 2018, Black confirmed that he will be returning to Worcester Warriorson a two-year-deal.
