The 2018 World Rugby Coach Of The Year Has Been Named

Well deserved.

Ireland boss Joe Schmidt has been named 2018 World Rugby Coach of the Year after an incredible year with the men in green.

Schmidt guided Ireland to back-to-back clean sweeps in November, including a victory over world champions the All Blacks, and guided Ireland to a first series victory against the Wallabies in Australia in nearly forty years, as well as winning a Six Nations Grand Slam.

No man more deserving. Schmidt wasn’t present to accept the award in Monte Carlo with Peter O’Mahony accepting it on his behalf.
