Matt Cheong

U6s / PRO

Experience & qualifications… Singapore 7,Singapore Select, Singapore u20s, UBC Thunderbirds & Sydney University Football Club. Currently playing for SCC 1st XV.
My Coaching Style is… At U6 it is all about getting the kids and the parents involved. I believe a supportive and sporting environment requires happy kids and dedicated parents. I try to prepare welcoming and fun sessions that introduce the basics of rugby no matter what their experience is (parents included). I aim to lay the foundations so the kids will enjoy rugby and be involved with Centaurs for years to come.
Best thing about coaching is… Passing on my knowledge to the next generation, having kids from different backgrounds playing together, giving back to Centaurs and hopefully help train up the next Marcus Smith… (or Matthew Cheong!)

Paul Borrett

I’ve been coaching Centaurs since… 2019.
Experience & Qualifications… I played rugby at school and at University. My position is in the forwards, a hooker. Although not rugby, I have extensive experience in martial arts as a competitor and coach. I have been teaching martial arts since 1987 and was honoured to be the National team coach for the Canadian San Shou Kickboxing team in 1996. I hold instructor/black belt qualifications in multiple arts. I will undertake my Level 1 World Rugby Coaching this year.
Best thing about coaching… I enjoy giving back to the sport and to see the kids grow in confidence as they enjoy their rugby training.
My coaching style… Noisy! I like to share enthusiasm and make it fun, entertaining and inclusive for the kids.
