Old head Jack McCalman eager to lead young Sydney Uni side up the Shute Shield ladder

Almost a decade after joining Sydney Uni’s grade program, 28-year old “veteran” Jack McCalman admits his role at the club has changed quite a bit over the years.

Now the ‘old head’ in a young, relatively inexperienced Sydney Uni side, McCalman wants to help get the Students back in contention at the pointy end of the season.

“I cop a lot of stick from the younger boys about being the old man of the side. I’m certainly not on TikTok or anything like that like a few of them,” the backrower told Rugby News.

“I just really love playing for this club. Having played a lot of different grades over the years, then eventually winning a premiership in first grade, it was really disappointing to go through a season like we did last year and I really want to help get the team back to where we want to be, which is playing finals footy and competing for titles.”
