Nick McCarthy

25th Mar 1995 1.78m/82kg Scrum Half

A product of the Leinster academy, Nick McCarthy is an exciting talent at the scrum half position. He had a notable career at underage level, being capped by and eventually captaining the Ireland U-20 side.

The diminutive half back has a snapping delivery and isnt shy of a tackle despite his size. Having made his debut for Leinster in 2015 against Toulon, he will look to make a mark on Irish rugby in the coming years.

This season, Mc Carthy has been playing in the British & Irish Cup with Leinster 'A' and playing AIL with UCD, while also being included in extended senior sides. He will be hoping his 2016 campaign is kick started with an appearance off the bench away to Zebre.

He made his first start for the Leinster in the Pro 12 v Glasgow on 28th April 2016.

In October 2018, he signed a two-year deal with Munster and will make the move from Leinster at the start of the 2019/20 season. At the end of the 2018/19 season he had represented Leinster 35 times, scoring 4 tries
