EX CARDIFF BLUES & WALES 7’S PLAYER JOINS THE RAIDERS COACHING STAFF READY FOR THE NEW SEASON
After announcing Wigan Warriors legend Ben Flowers as assistant coach a fortnight ago the Raiders have added even more experience through the appointment of ex Cardiff Blues & Wales 7’s player Gareth Davies.
Gareth has a wealth of experience as a player in rugby union having played for Cardiff Blues, Wales 7’s and most recently Merthyr RFC. The 37 year old will join Ben on the growing coaching staff also as another assistant coach and working alongside the future announcement of Raiders head coach.
Gareth spoke on his appointment “ I am really looking forward in joining the Raiders and having a new challenge, I feel all my years being involved in the professional game can help me in my new position at the club, what the Raiders are trying to achieve is something that I think I can be a major part of as there is a wealth of talent available in Wales who I have really close connections with. I think between my skills background and Ben’s conditioning and defence knowledge it will be a great coaching team along with the more names the club have to announce over the coming weeks.
Raiders part owner Peter Tiffin added “ Gareth is a great fit to what we are trying to build at the club, along with Ben his welsh background and knowledge of rugby is exactly what we are trying to grow within the club, I think Ben and Gareth are a great fit and will bounce of each other, they have been very proactive already in searching for their Raiders squad for 2022 and along with the new head coach appointment and further Raiders staff they look to improve massively on previous seasons.
