“The first thing that struck me about Andy was his unbending enthusiasm & commitment to everything he undertakes. During my time working alongside Andy at Ripon I found him to be a great asset and a highly valued member of the coaching team.


As head physiotherapist I found Andy to be extremely forward thinking and innovative in his approach. He is highly skilled in his field of rehabilitation & recovery and places a great deal of focus on prehabilitation, in my opinion an absolute necessesity in modern day sport.


In addition to his Physio skills Andy’s knowledge of rugby was also invaluable particularly in relation to the physical training and conditioning requirements of the players, which Andy took responsibility for during the season.


Andy’s many skills coupled with his infectious character and natural ability to motivate make him a great all rounder to have in the coaching set up.”
