Edinburgh Rugby is delighted to have secured the services of Fiji’s Olympic gold medal winning coach Gareth Baber.
Baber has been appointed the new Skills and Assistant Attack Coach of the Scottish professional club and will take up the role in December.
Head Coach Mike Blair said he is really looking forward to working with Baber.
“He’ll be a welcome addition to our coaching group.”
“I’ve got no doubt Gareth will hit the ground running once he links up with our group in December and our squad will benefit massively from his coaching and expertise.”
Edinburgh Rugby Managing Director, Douglas Struth, added: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Gareth to the club.”
“He’s an Olympic Gold medal winner and brings with him a wealth of experience and coaching pedigree that will only add to our already dynamic and talented coaching group.”
“Gareth’s record on the World Rugby Sevens Series speaks for itself while, in his role as Fiji Sevens Head Coach, he has worked with some of world rugby’s most talented and gifted players.
“Those experiences will bring an exciting style to our attacking philosophy – something our coaching staff will no doubt embrace from the get-go. We’re really looking forward to welcoming Gareth to Edinburgh Rugby this December,” he added.
Former Fiji 7s stars Viliame Mata and Mesulame Kunavula also feature for the club.
