Your Lead Coach: Matt Pewtner
Having played for over 20 years, with almost ten of those years being played at the professional and international level, it would be fair to say that I love the game of rugby. Everything that it represents, from mental toughness to respect, from hard work to execution of talent, are important traits that can lead to success in all facets of life.
Being forced to retire through injury the season following my best rugby was a tough pill to swallow. Staying involved within the world and community of rugby was vital and coaching has provided me that opportunity. As a coach I like to see players express themselves and have fun on the field from a young age to adult.
