Another Quins coaching departure


Second Harlequins coach in a fortnight leaves for 'personal reasons'

The coaching clearout at Harlequins has continued with Nick Easter the latest to depart the Gallagher Premiership club.

Defence coach Easter has left for “personal reasons” after 14 years with the West London club.

A statement on their club website said “During this time Nick played 281 games for the Club over 12 seasons playing a major part in the club’s success during that period. During that time he represented England 54 times playing in three World Cups.

“Since finishing playing two years ago he was appointed the Club’s defence coach. Transferring his playing knowledge to coaching very well he was a popular and dedicated member of the team.

“Harlequins would like to thank Nick for his contribution, innovation and hard work in this role and wish him well in his promising coaching career.”

Earlier this month Harlequins skills coach Colin Osbourne left the club after over 20 years at the club.

The club state on their website at the time: “Collin originally joined Harlequins coaching staff in 1996 at the start of the professional era and played a key role in helping introduce the standards of training and commitment required for the team to compete effectively in the changed rugby environment.

“His experience was to prove invaluable when the RFU introduced academies in 2002 and Harlequins was successful in being granted an RFU Academy licence.

“Collin was instrumental in attracting a group of talented young players to the Academy that have gone on to contribute greatly to Harlequins and achieve international status with England.

“Eight seasons ago he was appointed Skills Coach to the first team squad and worked with the players in an era that was the most successful in the Club’s professional history.

“Everyone connected with Harlequins would like to thank Collin for his contribution and commitment over the years and wishes him well for the future.”
