With the Gryphons
Appointed as Assistant coach in Aug 2016, then later Head Coach in Jan 2017
I have had the pleasure to help develop & raise the standards of rugby within the club.
With a positive and professional coaching approach I have enjoyed help the club establish a positive & safe environment to learn & play rugby.
