Joining the Tahs in the 2016 pre-season as part of the development squad, Andrew Deegan was promoted to the supplementary squad last year after being awarded the Roscoe Fay trophy as the Shute Shield’s highest points scorer.
In 2016 he tallied 194 points, including five tries in the 18 games he played for the Galloping Greens, having made his first grade debut for Randwick back in 2014.
Deegan was another NSW Waratahs player who contributed to the NSW Country Eagles successful Grand Final finishing campaign in 2016, amassing 46 points by the end of the Buildcorp NRC season through his boot.
Born and raised in Sydney’s north shore districts, Deegan attended school at St Joseph’s College, where he represented in the 1st XV.
He is yet another successful product of the NSW rugby pathways system having represented the NSW U20s on several occasions, including the side’s back-to-back Championships in 2013 and 2014.
He was then called up to represent his country as part of the Australian Schoolboys in 2013 and Australian U20s in 2015. Adding to the Tahs’ new energy in 2017, Deegan has been likened to his NSW Waratahs teammate, Bernard Foley as a potential up and coming flyhalf prospect.
