									David Wiggins. – Rugby Curricular Vitae :
GENERAL:

I joined the army as a boy in 1962 in Plymouth, England, in 1983 I was
commissioned from the ranks into the Staffordshire Regiment.
In 1985,due to personal reasons, I left the army and went into the licensed trade in
Devon and became a successful publican/caterer, running an equally successful
rugby coaching career in tandem.
In early 2006 I left the licensed trade and i now devote my time to coaching and
administrating rugby football.

I believe that I have a vast experience of coaching, I am a product of the excellent
British Army Rugby Union coaching programme and this gave me an outstanding
basic grounding in coaching methods, rugby administration, player management
and understanding of the game.

One of my main attributes is the ability to forward plan, utilize facilities and
human resources in order to get the best from players.

I consider myself to be a ‘no nonsense’ coach, I base my game on a very
aggressive defence with a simple but effective method of play that suits the team I
am with and this has proved to be very successful.

I have been with a number of clubs and representative teams at various levels both
in the U.K. and abroad, I therefore have a wide knowledge of how to operate.
I am an RFU level 3 coach and have been for a considerable time.
