Millwall appoints Director of Rugby

Millwall Rugby Club got their plans for Season 2011/12 on track this week as they appointed Warren Abrahams to the newly created position of Director of Rugby.

Abrahams, who hails from South Africa joins the Isle of Dogs club following coaching stints at London Irish and Harlequins. As a player he competed at national level both in the UK and in South Africa, as well as being selected for South Africa's 7's national team.

Following the departure of last season's 1st XV coach and the retirement of a number of senior players, the appointment couldn't have come at a better time for Men's Section Chair Randall Powell:

"We are very excited to have Warren as our Director of Rugby.  He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the club. With the talent the club brings in from Canary Wharf, I believe Warren is the perfect coach to take the club to next level.  He has a great ability to draw people in and get them to perform to the best ability.

As well as filling the senior coaching role for the men's teams at the club, Abrahams will be responsible for all coaching throughout the Millwall Park-based club, including its four junior teams and ladies section, Millwall Venus. And it's clear the new coach is up for the challenge:

"First of all I would like to thank Millwall RFC for giving me the opportunity to be part of the club. I'm very excited about this challenge, especially at a stage when there have been many changes at the club in terms of the set up and also the playing personnel. I hope to bring a level of experience and achievement that will be of immediate benefit to Millwall RFC. I'm looking forward to a great season and working with a group of players and coaches that consist of youth and experience."

Pre-season training for the men's senior teams begins on Tuesday 9th August at 730pm on Millwall Park. New players of all abilities and experience are welcome. For further information please visit
