What is brad hepi's record as a coach?
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

What is brad hepi's record as a coach?



Former Super League and international forward, Brad Hepi has been named as the new head coach of the University of Gloucestershire All Golds. He will lead the Championship One side in their inaugural semi-professional season, which begins next March against Oxford RFLC. Hepi brings a wealth of experience to the new team. He joined the professional ranks of rugby league in the 1980 and has played for Super League sides Hull FC, Castleford Tigers and Salford City Reds, and secured 12 caps for the New Zealand Maori Rugby League Team. Currently, he coaches the England Colleges back, following coaching positions with Hull FC Academy and Bristol Ladies RFUW Premiership. Director of sport at the University of Gloucestershire, Andy Pitchford, said: "Brad is a fantastic leader. He knows the game inside out and inspires players with his knowledge, commitment and courage. He will be an excellent coach for us and fits the All Golds mould – he is rugby league through and through but he understands education and what a university can bring to this great sport." Hepi's first challenge will be to build on the successful student side that already appears in the British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) leagues.

Tell them on their Facebook page if you have a Facebook account or e-mail their contact e-mail address. ;)

Apart from Marcus Brooker anyone else know who is from where? Many of those lads played at sem-pro/SL 'Academy' level?

You mean Broncos don't create huge interest in grassroots rugby league in London!


Well, according to some they do by remote control 20 milesaway from the action on the amateur field. I don't wholly support that view although I accept that they can be a top pf the iceberg team for juniors to eventually graduate to if they are good enough.

Decent signing to be announced today should add a little steel to the team. Website up at 6pm too.


Tim Bergin has had plenty of game time at Sheffield Eagles

I don't think that their influence is much more than marginal since London has not done much of late and Wales has gone backwards despite having SL sides and yet the Midlands and North East have no such team but have blossomed. Grassroots development is more down to volunteers and development officers.

Yannick Parker played for SW Scorpions last year. Obviously everyone knows Tim Bergin - ex of Sheffield Eagles, Ireland international etc.

I completely agree with that but I think you will have dtractors from that view very shortly.
