Weekly update | 24th July

Hello, and welcome to this week’s update.

The big news this week was the completion of our new coaching team with the appointment of Dom Waldouck as our new defence coach.

With George Skivington as our Head Coach, Alex King as Attack Coach, Dom as Defence Coach, Tim Taylor as Assistant Backs Coach and Academy Transition Coach and Trevor Woodman as Assistant Forwards Coach and Academy Transition Coach we now have a young English coaching team who between them have considerable Premiership experience, an innate knowledge of the English game and an understanding of what it takes to win trophies.

As a Board we spent a long time considering how we wanted our new set up to look, and we’re delighted to have this team in place. We hope they’ll be with us for many years to come.

We also bid farewell to Josh Hohneck this week, as he has elected to remain in his native New Zealand due to concerns about bringing his young family back to the UK. We are of course sad to see him go, but wish him all the best for the future. There’s no doubt he’s been a great player for our Club.

We feel we’re pretty well resourced on the playing side now, but as I said last week, if we do find someone we think would improve the squad (and fit within our budgets, of course) then we would certainly have a look at them.

There’s a feeling that things are beginning to return to a more normal state of affairs around the Club now. We’re even getting used to our daily temperature checks and all the one way systems around the stadium and training ground.

Training is progressing well, and our first game of the restarted season is now only three weeks away. There’s no doubt that everyone is looking forward to starting playing again, as I’m sure you are.

I’ll be in touch again next week.

Best wishes

Lance
