Coaches

Tim Hughes - Head Coach

I was a Red Dog from 2001-2003, where I played lock and 8man. I began playing for the GB Celtics in 2006 where they had me at wing for a season before moving to the forwards where I played lock, flank and 8. Primarily a 15s player, although I played one season on a Midwest qualifier 7s team. 

 

I began coaching the Red Dogs as an assistant along side one of my former coaches, Jay  "Stretch" Armstrong. I took over the team in 2009 as Head Coach.
