John McCarthy Award for Greencore Academy Player of the Year – Ben Healy

Advancing into his second year of the Greencore Munster Academy Ben Healy enjoyed a brilliant start to the 2020/21 season excelling in wins over Scarlets, Edinburgh and Cardiff Blues.

His early season introduction saw him kick a fantastic 50-metre penalty to win the game against Scarlets in additional time in Round 1 of the Guinness PRO14.

The 21-year-old’s rise continued as he enjoyed a successful campaign kicking 79 points and scoring one try in his 17 appearances (7 starts).

With a monster boot and composed nature the future looks bright for the young out-half as he joins the senior squad ahead of the 2021/22 season.
