Committee - 27 November 2013
The Epping Rams are pleased to announce the third phase of their coaching structure for 2014 with the appointments of:
- Ash Emmett as Third Grade Coach;
- Andrew Beaven as Assistant Third Grade Coach and Lower Grades Back Coach; and
- Nathan Harvey & Tony Fidow-Katopau as Colts Coaches.
After a season away from rugby, Ash returns to the Club keen to make a mark on the way that third grade play rugby and nurture player development through the grades. He has played first grade games for the Rams, including the 2005 Clark Cup premiership.
Assisting Ash will be Andrew Beaven, who returns to the coaching ranks in 2014 to guide the skill development of our lower grades backs. In addition to being an accomplished first grader who was part of the 2001 and 2005 Clark Cup premiership teams, he has coached first grade in 2009-2010, as well as third grade in 2007-2008. Andrew's expertise and rugby knowledge will be an asset to the lower grade ranks of the club.
Nathan Harvey returns as the Colts coach for 2014, following up from his first coaching premiership - the 2013 Radford Cup. With almost 300 grade games as a player and five years of coaching experience, he is looking forward to guiding the next group of Colts players to another premiership.
Assisting Nathan will be new coaching recruit Tony Fidow-Katopau. Tony joins the club through his association with Nathan and is keen to impart his rugby knowledge on the new charge of colts. He has an impressive rugby pedigree including playing First Grade Colts at Parramatta Two Blues (1999-2000) and First Grade at Norths Rugby (2001-2004).
