new backs coach for the Lions

We are pleased to announce that Troy Perkins will be joining Rugby Lions as back coach


I’m excited to join the coaching staff at Rugby Lions. I have known Aggy for a long time firstly coaching him at Coventry RFC and then coaching alongside him. He is someone I respected as a player and respect as a coach so when he asked me would I be involved with the club, I didn’t need much convincing to agree to join such an ambitious club. I am sure I can add something to the group of players we have in various aspects of the game. I have followed the progression of the club over the past few seasons and hopefully we can progress even more next season
