A FORMER Drybrook RFC coach, now head coach for Singapore Rugby Union’s Mens’ XV, has led the team to victory in the Asia Rugby Championships.

Glory comes after the team beat Thailand 38-13 in the final played in Taiwan on Saturday, November18 and sees the team promoted to the area’s Division One tier. The Singapore national side competed against Sri Lanka, China, Malaysia and India in the championship tournament.

Frazer was head coach of the Singapore Wanderers RFC for 18 months, taking them through the 2015/16 season, which resulted in them winning the top national league as well as the corresponding cup competition, without losing a single match in either tournament.

Frazer’s father, Stuart McArdell, said: “The SRU then headhunted Frazer for the position because, in their words, they have never seen the style of rugby he brought to the Wanderers played in Singapore before.

“They have a four-year development plan and want Frazer to be at the coaching helm to help steer them through.

“In addition to the successes of his Wanderers RFC and the SRU, he has just been awarded a directorship in the Sports Education company in which he works with ex-Gloucester and England player James Forester.”
