A Short Presentation

Currently employed by the RFU on a temporary contract as a CRC within Leicestershire. My primary task has been to work in schools to develop players and transition them to Belgrave RFC through festivals and games. I have also supported Holding on Clubs as well as working with the Derbyshire CRC to provide social TOUCH rugby opportunities. As a Rugby Developer and partially qualified Coach Educator I have been supporting the development of club coaches by delivering high quality CPDs.

With my club experience I have trained others in the benefit of using the RFU GMS system.
