I am an RFU Level 3 Coach who lives and breathes rugby as a WRU Coach Educator, I'm also currently the head coach for Swansea Schools U15.
My love of the game started as a player for Bath and then Bristol.
Before I started writing my e-newsletter, I was head of rugby at Cranleigh School in Surrey with responsibility for 16 teams, and then a Skills Coach with the Young Ospreys in Wales. I was also Assistant Coach of the Welsh Women's National Team at the Women's Rugby World Cup in 2010.
I was inspired to become a coach during my playing career. At Bath my influence was the magnificent Jack Rowell before he went on to manage England. I was (and still am) one of many followers of the hugely talented Brian Ashton (later coach for Ireland and England).
At Bristol I was fortunate enough to be taught to kick by Dave Alred, who later became Jonny Wilkinson's kicking guru.
My goal now is to inspire
others to take up or improve their rugby coaching.
