“Great opportunity” – England add another coach ahead of summer tour

Scarlets have confirmed that Joe Lewis has re-joined the England set-up after a year working as our Head of Technical Performance.

Joe will take on a new role of Training Coordinator with the RFU and will lead analysis work on special projects.

Scarlets General Manager of Rugby Jon Daniels said: “This is a great opportunity for Joe leading up to the Rugby World Cup next year. We’d like to thank him for his efforts last season and wish him all the best in his new role.”

The squad will meet up at The Lensbury tomorrow [Tuesday 7 June] as they continue preparations for next weekend’s match against the Barbarians and July’s tour of Australia.
