PONTYPOOL, South Wales, 26TH June 2017 – Pontypool RFC is pleased to announce that Rhys Dyer has been appointed as the club’s head of performance for the 2017-2018 WRU National Championship campaign.

Dyer replaces outgoing head of strength and conditioning, Simon Church, who has opted to focus on his full-time commitments with the Dragons after two successful stints leading Pooler’s fitness regime.

“I am honoured to be joining the management team at Pontypool RFC in a role that I am incredibly passionate about,” said Dyer.

“As Simon Church so expertly demonstrated last season, providing the squad with specific programming to develop physical attributes is essential if we are to continue to play the high-tempo brand of rugby that has delivered so much success to the club.

“I am delighted with the progress we have made thus far and I cannot wait to get stuck in to the job over the pre-season period and beyond.”

In addition to remaining a member of Pooler’s squad in his familiar role of scrum-half, Dyer will be responsible for overseeing all team performance strategy to ensure that the club’s National Championship title winning squad maintain peak fitness throughout the season.

“We are delighted to have added Rhys to our management team in what has become such a vital role to the club in recent seasons,” said Pontypool RFC head coach, Leighton Jones.

“Not only have we gained a true professional who has an excellent understanding of what is required to maximise team performance, but we have someone who understands the values we stand for as a club and the culture that has made us so successful over the past twelve months.

“Rhys has already introduced a range of innovative performance structures to our team and I am looking forward to further integrating his ideas into our dynamic throughout the season.”
