Austin joined the Bootleggers just before the start of the 2018/2019 season and made a massive impact on the pitch. During his first season with the Clayton RFC Austin set a new club record for most tries in a season with 17 in just 9 games played. His performance earned him the club’s 1st XV Most Valuable Back Award. Austin was also selected to play for the Carolinas Rugby Union 7s Selects and the South Panther’s U23 side during the past year.
