Growing up in Wicklow, Josh was sports-mad, but rugby was his passion. He took his early footsteps on the pitch at school with Wesley College, where he first donned his famous red scrum cap. Through hard work and dedication, he eventually earned selection to the Leinster Academy and began climbing the ladder towards his dream of becoming a professional rugby player.

Despite injury setbacks, Josh established himself as a key player for the province. And soon he was called up to play for his country, starting a glorious run of honours including two grand slams, surpassing even his own expectations when he was named World Player of the Year in 2022.
