Ealing Sign USA International Malon Al-Jiboori
Ealing Trailfinders have been busy in with their recruitment again and made another eye-catching signing. Back Row Malon Al-Jiboori has joined the club, to give them further options, in an already stacked area for the club. Al-Jiboori has pace and power, which he has shown for both the USA Eagles and particularly for the USA Sevens side. He played 31 matches for the Sevens system and stood out for his all action play. The Flanker has had a number of spells in Major League Rugby, for San Diego Legion and the Glendale Raptors. He will now head to his new challenge in the Championship and join a back row with the likes of league standout Rayn Smid.
What They Said:
“I’m very grateful to be joining Ealing Trailfinders, making that transition to a full time XV’s environment from years in 7’s is exciting and it was an opportunity I didn’t want to pass.
I can’t wait to get to work and build on what this club has achieved and wants to achieve for the future.”
Director of Rugby Ben Ward:
“Malon is someone we have been watching over the last two years and we are thrilled that he has put pen to paper with us.
With his time in Sevens his skill-set is extremely high, and he is explosive which will suit our style of play very well.
He has played at the highest level in the World Cup and we believe he can help contribute to achieving our goal over the coming years.”
