First Aid

I have provided first aid to Harlow rugby players for 21 years, first with a Boys’ junior side (U13), through to Colts and finally with senior men.  I come from a medical background, having taught in medical schools in 4 countries over a period of 45 years.  I bring my experience in anatomy, physiology, neurology and pharmacy to my volunteering role at Harlow Rugby Club.  I enjoy being an active member of a talented team that looks after the mental and physical wellbeing of senior players engaged in a demanding sport.

Paul Eynon

Paul Eynon

Head Coach, Coaching Coordinator, Rams Podcast Host

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 under u15s some time ago. He progressed to play for the 1st XV for nearly 20 years captaining the side for a number of years.  He then moved into coaching and has coached the under 16s since they joined the minis at under 7s.

 

Paul says “Coaching is great, but you will never replace playing so play as long can. Then coach and share what you know while learning more you wished you knew when you were playing.“
