Matt Everard

Transition Coach 

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 most recent 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 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.
