31-year-old Kieran Hallett has signed for Plymouth Albion and will have a dual role as a player as well as being the backs coach for the team.
The fly half, who for the last four seasons has been playing for the Cornish Pirates, will be working alongside former prop Dan Parkes who is Albion’s new head coach.
Hallett played for Plymouth Albion from 2008 to 2011.
I’m really pleased to be coming back to Albion and the move gives me the opportunity to continue playing a high standard of rugby as well as kick starting my coaching career.
Hallett will combine his player coach role at Brickfields with working for the Exeter Chiefs Academy in Cornwall.
The takeover of Plymouth Albion RFC by former players Bruce Priday and Dave Venables has been formally ratified by the RFU.
The RFU confirmed that Plymouth Albion would be playing National 1 rugby in the 2016-17 season.
There were fears that Plymouth Albion could be demoted down the league structure, like Richmond RFC some years ago.
Priday and Venables have had to put up a cash ‘Bond Deposit’ of £147,000, which will be held by the RFU.
While we are really pleased that Plymouth Albion will be playing National 1 rugby next season, we feel the size of the ‘Bond Deposit’ to be excessively large.
We presented a well prepared case which highlighted the strong working relationship we have with Plymouth City Council and the desire of both parties to build a Premiership standard club in the City.
