New Zealand strength and conditioning coach Wayne Taylor has joined the Kings as their new Head of Athletic Performance.
Taylor will work directly with Kings Director of High Performance, Robbie Kempson.
The New Zealander boasts an impressive CV that includes working with the Junior All Blacks. He has also worked with Super Rugby sides the Lions and Sunwolves, and was also the strength and conditioning coach of the Japanese national rugby team.
In addition, he has expanded beyond rugby, having worked with a variety of top South African athletes across various sporting codes.
‘We have sourced the most experienced, internationally qualified specialist in high performance,’ Kempson said.
‘His impact has already been immense on both players and staff. Tails is aligned with the ambitions of the board in assisting our transition towards being competitive in the rigours of PRO14 rugby.’
