Richard Hill boasts an impressive record in club rugby at both a coaching and playing level. The vastly experienced former Bath and England international scrum-half, who signed a two-year deal with Warriors in June 2010, is renowned for the developing competitive side on a shoe-string budget.
Hill, who played 29 times for England, spent six highly successful years at Bristol where he guided them to promotion out of the second tier of English rugby and into to the Guinness Premiership in 2005.
His outstanding work at the Memorial Stadium saw him lead Bristol to a best-ever third place in 2006/2007 and Heineken Cup rugby. The following season the club achieved a memorable victory over French champions Stade Francais on home soil. Hill also previously coached at Gloucester, Newport and Harlequins and has spells as Head Coach of England Students and backs coach at Ebbw Vale.
