The HOBMRFC Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of Matthew Lee as Head Coach of the club's Premier team for the 2021 season.
Matt is a well known and respected coach in the Wellington and international rugby scenes with experience in both 15’s and 7’s rugby, from Grassroots level to professional coaching in Scotland, USA and Sri Lanka. He has worked with the Wellington Rugby Union in both forms of the game in Head Coach and Assistant Coach roles with the Wellington Development, Maori and 7’s teams. He brings with him a proven record of success which includes two Jubilee Cups, two Swindale Shields, a Spillane Cup 5-peat, and four McBain Shields.
Matt will be assisted this season by Phil Gibb, who himself has Premier level and Heartland Rugby Head Coaching experience, and John Pereira who has previously coached our Prem Reserve team and our 2015 John E Kelly Memorial winning Colts team.
We wish Matt and the team every success for the coming season.
