Rhys has been with Sports 121 for 2 years now and is our lead coach alongside Adam Shaw. In addition to this, Rhys is the North Herts Regional General Manager and leads on our coach education.
Rhys has a strong background in rugby having represented East Midlands Rugby Union and having started at Biggleswade rugby club has ensured he maintains strong links in the Bedfordshire area. Rhys now plays for Hitchin RFC in the first team and can regularly be spotted on Sunday morning delivering coaching clinics to the mini and youth section as well as the ladies teams.
Rhys has also done a lot of refereeing in rugby. He is a level 2 society referee (which is very good) and refereed at level 7. One day he hopes to be as good as Wayne Barnes or Nigel Owens, but obviously with much better hair!
Rhys supports Northampton Saints in the Aviva Premiership, Cardiff Blues in the Pro 12, and supports Wales nationally, Cymru Am Byth.
