Former Leicester star joins England Women’s coaching staff

England Women have appointed Richard Blaze as forwards coach with immediate effect.

Former Leicester Tigers lock-turned-coach Blaze will head up the forwards division for the England Women’s team following the departure of Matt Ferguson to Northampton Saints earlier this year.

Blaze joins head coach Simon Middleton and backs coach Scott Bemand to complete the England Women coaching set up.

Blaze joined England Rugby as part of the coach development agreement in November 2017, working as England U20 forwards coach.
