FROM EAGLES TO ROOSTERS, MEET RUNY’S NEW HEAD COACH, GREG MCWILLIAMS: Presented by MLR
In Rugby United New York’s inaugural season as a Major League Rugby team, the side placed fourth overall in the season standings prior to a semi-final loss to the San Diego Legion. It was a phenomenal opening season for the side and a feat that new Head Coach Greg McWilliams will be hoping to surpass in his time in New York.
Taking over from Mike Tolkin, McWilliams was announced as Tolkin’s successor prior to the USA Eagles Rugby World Cup campaign beginning in September. Acting as the Eagles attack coach for the duration of the tournament, McWilliams says that whilst a move back to Europe would have tempted him, his love for America was too strong.
“I was looking at the option of going back to Europe, which was exciting at one stage, but I like the American market, I like the project that is the MLR. It has great growth potential, so I am really looking forward to leading and New York is a great place for me to do that.” McWilliams started.
