New Head Coach Graham Rowntree oversaw the first session with a new-look coaching team in place for the season including Attack Coach Mike Prendergast, Defence Coach Denis Leamy and Forwards Coach Andi Kyriacou.

New signings Malakai Fekitoa, Antoine Frisch and Chris Moore have all joined the squad at the High Performance Centre. Five Academy players have also stepped up to the senior squad.

Antoine Frisch is progressing well after undergoing a shoulder procedure towards the end of last season and will be in line to return in time for our pre-season fixtures.

Three of the new Academy additions are training at the HPC: Evan O’Connell, Jack Oliver and Ruadhan Quinn. See full details of the six players joining the Academy here.
