In 2008 he became player coach at Eccles till 2010 and between that time coached NCL eagles touring France. Since then Anthony has coached Millom till present. He is now also working with Steve McCormack coaching the Scotland team.

“Anthony was one of the first of 8 potential coaches to be interviewed and stood out immediately.

“We are delighted with the appointment of Anthony and now look forward to building the squad with Anthony utilising his many contacts in the rugby world.”
