The Denver Harlequins Rugby Football Club is proud to announce Angus Peacock as our new head coach, starting this spring 2015 season. He is a Level 3 certified coach, and a certified coaching instructor who will be teaching other coaches in the USA.
Coach Peacock started playing rugby at the age of seven, like many kids in the UK. Coach Peacock attended and played rugby at the University of Westminster in London.
After earning his degree, he made the journey to China for work. While living there, he re-formed the Shanghai Rugby Football Club (the Hairy Crabs), which had been inactive since 1950. Coach Peacock served as Director of Coaching and Operations Director of Sport for All, providing structured multi-sports coaching and sporting activities for more than 3,000 children in need each week. His contributions to rugby in Asia have garnered praised from the upper echelons of the International Rugby Board (IRB).
Coach Peacock and his wife, Marissa, moved to the United States in 2014, and helped coach University of New Mexico while founding Black Dragon Rugby (an elite, high performance rugby academy, similar to Tiger Rugby). After transitioning to Denver, he re-joined Jimmy Kunsman, one of the Harlequins’ assistant coaches and a former assistant coach with the Shanghai Hairy Crabs, in Denver.
As a traditional powerhouse in Colorado Club Rugby, the Quins have represented the Rocky Mountain Rugby Union throughout the United States and internationally.
We are strong competitors on the field, in the pub, and in our community, aggressively bringing rugby and its values of fitness, athleticism and tradition to Denver. We tour actively and compete nationwide in the USA Rugby playoffs. If you are looking for a club that combines on-field success with off-field camaraderie and fun, you’ve found it.
We are always on the look-out for new players, whether you have played for decades or had never heard about the sport before coming to this webpage. Regardless of ability and/or skill level, the Denver Harlequins have a place for you.
