Gareth Baber
Gareth is a former Newport Gwent Dragons scrum-half whose job prior to assuming the head coach's role for the Hong Kong Sports Institute’s rugby sevens programme was as attacks/backs coach for Cardiff Blues RFC in Wales. He retired as a player in 2007, but not before earning a Blue for Oxford University’s rugby team and playing for Cardiff, Llanelli, Aberavon, Bristol and Pontypridd. Gareth has also worked as assistant coach with Wales Under-20s and as coach for the Wales sevens side.

Since the players’ arrival back at the Hong Kong Sports Institute on 6 January, both the men’s and women’s squads have been working hard on their physical conditioning and basic skills.

I recall a conversation I had with my father when I was 11 years old during which he claimed that by the time I reached the age of 18, rugby players in Wales would be paid as professional athletes.
