Anthony Buchanan: Stepping down as head of rugby
Anthony Buchanan: Stepping down as head of rugby

AFTER ten seasons as Head of Rugby for Llanelli RFC (and over 30 years service to the Scarlets.) Anthony Buchanan is stepping down.
Due to Anthony’s appointment as National Appointed Director to the WRU Board and also running a busy Chemical Business (Acorn Chemical), he feels he needs to concentrate on his WRU role after being elected to several Committees and representing the WRU on the World Rugby Council.
Llanelli RFC have now appointed Kevin George as the new Head of Rugby. Kevin was Head Coach last season and has been involved with the Scarlets Academy and Llanelli for 15 years.
Also, last seasons Forwards Coach Ioan Cunningham has taken up a role as forwards Coach with the Scarlets, which leaves Kevin George having to shuffle his coaching staff, changes to which will be announced shortly.
