Torfaen Tigers are pleased to announce today the addition of ex South Wales Scorpions Academy and Wales u18 Team Manager Wayne Ponting to their coaching team.

 

Ponting has a raft of Rugby League experience having been involved with both the South Wales Scorpions Academy and Scholarship sides as well as various Welsh age grade sides after starting out as coach of Blackwood Bulldogs under 17s.

 

Ponting said: "I am delighted to have joined the Tigers, I have been involved with junior RL in Wales at community and academy level for many years, and am excited to finally step up to open age rugby. The Tigers are an ambitious club with big plans for this year and beyond. I cant wait to get to start."

 

Tigers Chairman Rob Davies added: "Wayne is a great addition to the club and I'm sure he will compliment Jamie (Williams) and Chris (Bailey) well. Wayne's joining the club in addition to Rhys Miller last week puts us in a strong position moving forward."

 

The Tigers hope to announce a number of new player signings over the next week ahead of their Challenge Cup debut next month.
