A PEMBROKESHIRE-based rugby officer will be stepping into international coaching next year!

Pembrokeshire College’s WRU rugby officer Aled Waters will be coaching the Austrian National Rugby Team. He will take up his position in March.

Aled spent time living in New Zealand and gained invaluable experience developing his coaching skills and will be hoping to showcase his dedication to elevating the Austrian team’s performance as they compete against Slovenia and Bosnia, paving the way to creating a strong presence in global rugby.

Aled said: “Representing Austria on the international stage is a privilege, and I am committed to bringing out the best in our players, ensuring that the Austrian National Rugby Team is recognised for its skill, determination, and spirit.

“It allows me personally to keep developing and learning more about myself as a coach and bringing my learnings to my current role with the rugby academy here at the college.”

The college said it is ‘immensely’ proud of Aled and wishes him the best of luck on this exciting venture.
