Coaches & Support Staff

Chris Leech

Senior Mens Coach

Very excited to return for what will be my fourth at saints and last season as a coach. Looking forward to working with a group of players that are evolving every year. Two new captains that will have the same values as myself in creating a positive environment for players to develop. This season will hopefully put the saints in a great position for many years to come.
