Matt Everard joined Wasps as Academy Coach in 2017 and after two successful seasons was promoted to the senior coaching set-up ahead of the 2019/20 season as Transition Coach.
As Academy Coach, Everard led the Wasps A side in the 2018/19 Premiership Rugby Shield, where they finished the season with four consecutive bonus-point wins while also running in 48 tries in their ten matches – including seven try-bonus points.
His new role with Wasps sees him help with the transition of Academy players into the first-team, after a whopping eight players made the step up at the end of the 2018/19 season.
During his playing days, Everard was part of the England Under 20s side which made the 2011 Junior World Championship final alongside current Wasps Joe Launchbury and Dan Robson, before enjoying a four-year spell with Leicester Tigers and three seasons at Wasps.
He later joined Nottingham Rugby where he led a young squad, with the responsibility of restarting the club’s Academy. He retired from the game in 2017.
