The committee of Oxford Rugby Club are delighted to confirm the appointment of Magdalen College School Sports Master Dominic Matthews as Head Coach of the Senior Men’s teams with immediate effect. Dom is familiar to the players and those who follow Oxford as an influential fly half. He will continue to play as a Player / Coach and lead both on and off the field using his experience gained as a playmaker with Newent, Royal Holloway, Lydney and Monmouth RFC.

Dom has coached at all levels from the Mini and Juniors at Newent, the ladies at Royal Holloway as well as at MCS.

Said Club Chair John Brodley, ‘ Dom is the perfect coach to take the Senior Men’s teams forward at this stage in our club development. He is a young, enthusiastic coach full of modern ideas which will challenge the players. His link with Magdalen College School continues a long association the club has had with that institution and will help in his interactions with our commercial partners and the wider club membership’.

Oxford Club like all other sports clubs is currently closed due to COVID 19 but that will not stop Dom putting together his ideas for the resumption of play into a coherent plan. He will also work closely alongside the committee to put together his support team and budget requests.
