Esher are delighted to announce that first team coach Tom Williams has been appointed to the England under-20 coaching panel for the upcoming Six Nations Championship.
It’s a great opportunity for Tom, and while it does mean that he will miss some of the forthcoming league matches, his international commitments will not preclude him taking most coaching sessions over the next 7 weeks.
Ricky will oversee the First XV during the period when Tom is away, and the RFU have offered to make recompense to the club for the time that Tom is away.
On behalf of the club John Inverdale said : “We will do everything we can to ensure that disruption to the First XV programme is kept to the barest minimum. The timing of the appointment is obviously not ideal but the club is delighted that Tom has been given the chance as it is recognition of his work both at Esher and Harlequins, and the potential he has to go to the very top of coaching in this country.”
