Representative Honours: Western Australia URC (2018), Perth Spirit NRC (2017)
A proud member of RugbyWA’s Future Force Academy, powerful scrumhalf McDonald has only called Australia home since 2013, having moved to WA from his home of Carlingford in Ireland. Coming from a large family of all boys with two sets of twins, Michael’s competitive edge runs high and he hopes to use this as the Junior Wallabies take to their 2019 campaign in full flight.
Young gun No.9 Michael McDonald has earned his selection in the Road Safety Perth Spirit squad after an outstanding 2017 season. The 20-year-old has been training with the Future Force Foundation and caught the eye of Head Coach Kevin Foote. McDonald was a reliable contributor for Palmyra in the Pindan Premier Grade and was a standout in the Palms’ Colts premiership winning side.
