Wibsey have announced a shake-up of their coaching staff for next season.

Prop Andy Rose is to become player-coach, centre Bryn Worsley will be backs coach and flanker Chris Farley fitness coach.

Wibsey finished off their SSE Yorkshire Division Five season by giving hosts Hallamshire a walkover as the visitors only had 11 players.

However, Wibsey's day out was compounded when half of the players went to Hallamshire's old ground in S10 - King Edwards School Sports Centre - and half of them to their new ground on Bawtry Road in S9 because the home club's website hadn't been updated.

They teams ended up playing a sevens match, which Hallamshire won 78-51, with Farley reckoning he is the new Jonny Wilkinson by scoring 23 points - three tries and four conversions. 

Wibsey are having a players' meeting next Saturday at 3pm in their clubhouse to run the rule over the season just finished, explain the coaching changes and look forward to next season.
