Denver Barbarians name Stephen Hazel Director of Rugby

The Denver Barbarians Rugby Club announced this week that it has selected Stephen Hazel for the newly revived position of the Director of Rugby at the Denver based Rugby Club.

Hazel, who coached the Denver Barbarians’ Rugby Super League (RSL) squad to an RSL Championship in 1999, will oversee coaches and managers as well as direct player recruitment and development for all of the Denver Barbarians’ rugby programs.

The Barbarians had allowed the position of Director of Rugby to remain vacant for several years but decided to fill the job this year due to the need to oversee all aspects of on-field rugby operations as the Barbarians continue to grow.
