Working With Local Rugby Talent in Bermuda

Our Director of Rugby, Simon Mulholand, has just returned from Bermuda where he ran training sessions with Bermudian national coaches and talented local youngsters to improve their rugby skills. Joining him on the trip was fellow Sedbergh coach, James Coulton, who played for Bermuda before the Covid-19 pandemic cut short his stay.

Sedbergh’s standing as one of the UK’s top rugby schools ensured that the trip created interest. Whilst there, Simon was interviewed by the Bermuda Royal Gazette and also the Bermuda Broadcasting Company.

“It’s been brilliant coming to Bermuda and coaching the young rugby players, both boys and girls.’’

“I’ve been coming here for the last five or six years.”

“We’ve had a great time and it’s just so nice to see the smiles on faces and the enjoyment that they’re having. It’s a real pleasure and honour to be here.”

“They are great children and really talented. They love running with the ball in space, using footwork.”

Simon highlighted that we currently have several pupils from Bermuda at Sedbergh School, “They’re just fantastic and we love what they add to the school. They come from great backgrounds and we really enjoy having them at Sedbergh.”

Whilst there [in Bermuda], “There’s some talent identification from us and we have lots of meetings with prospective parents to see if they want to send their children to Sedbergh.”
