Early lifeEdit

Loughman first played rugby for Athy RFC, while he attended Árdscoil na Tríonóide and was capped at Leinster Under-18 Youths level. He then moved to Blackrock College, Dublin for his fifth and sixth year, where he won the Leinster Schools Rugby Senior Cup in 2013 and 2014.[1][2][3]

MunsterEdit

Loughman joined Munster on a three-month development contract in December 2017, having previously been a member of the Leinster Academy.[4] He made his first appearance for Munster A on 8 December 2017, featuring off the bench in the provinces' 25–14 defeat against Bedford Blues in the 2017–18 British and Irish Cup.[5] He made his debut for Munster on 1 January 2018, coming on as a replacement for James Cronin in the 2017–18 Pro14 fixture against Ulster.[6] Loughman's contract was extended until the end of the 2017–18 season in April 2018[7], before being extended again for the whole of the 2018–19 season.[8]

He signed a one-year contract extension with Munster in December 2018, a deal that will see him remain with the province until at least June 2020.[9] Loughman made his Champions Cup debut for Munster on 9 December 2018, featuring off the bench in their 30–5 win against French pool 2 opponents Castres.[10] He scored his first try for Munster in their 31–12 win against Zebre on 23 March 2019.[11]
