Some say, if you cut him in half you just see red and green, all we know is his nickname Onion has a dual meaning. There are many layers to him, and he can make you cry. (Whether it is laughter or sadness, we aren’t sure). We also think he got the name because no one could say Eynon and the rest is just for show
Paul had played for Harlow since he was in the youth section back in the late 80s early 90s. He progressed to play for the 1st XV for nearly 20 years captaining the side for a number of seasons. He then moved into coaching and has coached from under 7s to 16s following his oldest son Owen through the age grades. Paul will coach the under 16s for 2022/23 spending time with his youngest son Rhys for the final year of youth rugby.
Paul says “Coaching is great, but you will never replace playing, play as long as you can. Then coach and share what you know while learning more you wished you knew when you were playing.“
I volunteer because I love giving back to the players and seeing them develop themselves progressing their rugby to the next level.
Banker by day, Coach and 1st Aider by night and on the weekends. Great at giving others advice, incapable of following it myself.
Love the game, but more so watching the boys grow in confidence
This is my 13th year coaching at Harlow. I’m very blessed to work with some very amazing, talented and passionate coaches. My coaching time at Harlow is still the highlight of my week.
I’ve been a volunteer with Harlow RUFC for the past 6yrs. Starting off in the mini’s section until my daughter advanced to the girls U13’S team, where I was asked to help with the training of the girls team.
