Name: Darrell Edwards

Job Title: Head of Rugby

Current Level of Coaching: Level Three

Interesting Fact: Fluent Welsh speaker, loves playing tennis and golf

Coaching Background: I have spent the past 30 years coaching rugby, and working as a rugby development officer. I have worked for the Welsh Rugby Union, the Irish Rugby Union and England Rugby Union. I coached the Welsh Women’s Rugby Union National Team for two years, and have acted as Tutor Coach on Level One’s and Level Two’s for the WRU, IRU, and the RFU.

Quote from Darrell: Hi, I'm Darrell Edwards and I'm the Head of Rugby at the University of Wolverhampton. This will be my first full season as Head Coach, having got involved mid way through last season. With the current players in our squad, and recruitment of new fresher’s players – along with the excellent 3G facility at the Walsall – we will be more competitive in our league and cup campaign this year. I believe that we have made a lot of progress since last January, and with the support of the University and the current players and new rugby committee I think it will be a good season. I will look to be hugely influential and supportive of the current and new fresher’s players. I’m looking forward to the challenge.

Date for the Diary

All players welcome to our first Rugby Development Day on Wed 20 Sept 2017 at 3.30pm-7pm at Walsall campus 3G pitch.
