CLUB PRESIDENT

As President, I’m striving to keep Centaurs as the premier rugby club for families in search of a high quality, positive rugby experience for their children. Keeping the focus on every player and their development. Building character through the rugby experience. Since I first pulled on a Centaurs Coach shirt over ten years ago, I’ve been bleeding Yellow and Blue ever since. It’s great being a Centaur, and I love this club!

Bryan is also Head Coach for U13s.

Coaching Centaurs since… 2017
Experience & Qualifications… I started playing netball when I was 13 years old, and have been playing ever since! I’ve played for schools and currently I’m playing with my club. I coach the local schools full time.
The best thing about coaching… there’s fun and games and everyone can have a go at all the activities and positions. It doesn’t really matter what your standard is at the moment, there’s always something for you to learn and take away. And at the end of the day, we make new friends, and friends who train hard together, are the best kind of friends.
