Boris Fournials
European Rugby Manager

Based in France, I have played rugby from a very young age. Rugby being such an international sport has allowed me to play in several countries around the world - France, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia and a host of other countries travelled through my time playing.

These experiences have allowed me to experience Rugby on many different levels and helped me develop a very strong passion of the game personally.

Andrew Robb
European Rugby Manager

Having played sports and travelled all my life it was inevitable I'd try and combine the two at some stage in the form of a job. Of late that has been predominantly in Italy and then playing sevens all over the world throughout the summer.

My professional playing career has had many ups and downs but Rugby being the global family it is, the positive experiences are the first that spring to mind and will always outweigh the injuries and time off. When this opportunity arose there was no doubt in my mind it was and is something I have to do, Rugby has gifted me more joy than anything else and it's time to repay that and pass it forward onto others.

Karl Furey
Oceania Rugby Manager

Based in Whangarei, New Zealand.

I have been fortunate enough to gain experience playing rugby throughout New Zealand, Scotland and England. With the close international contacts I have gained I want to help aspiring players, coaches and clubs of all levels achieve their rugby goals.

My last game in the UK ended with a dislocated knee and a multi ligament injury which means I am sidelined for the time being, but ready to prop up and push others forward!

I look forward to meeting new people and am excited to work closely with those who are as passionate about rugby as I am.
