1997 - 2004

ENGLAND RUGBY TEAM, HEAD COACH


Clive was honoured to become England's first full-time professional head coach in 1997. His first objective was to play a style of rugby which would get 70,000 fans at Twickenham off their feet going nuts. With the players he had, he knew they could not only challenge the dominant southern hemisphere nations but actually become the world's number one ranked team. Clive aimed to do so by applying the same principles he had developed within his own business.
