Head Coach

Profile Biog

Former Wales Head Coach Gareth Jenkins was a flanker who made his debut for Llanelli as a 17-year-old and went on to make over 250 appearances for the Stradey Park club. He also played for Wales B and the Barbarians and toured Japan with Wales in 1975, but was not capped. He played in the Llanelli team that beat the 1972 New Zealand tourists.

He coached the Stradey Park club to four Welsh Cup victories, the 1992-93 League and Cup double (only club to have done this), 1998-99 & 2001-02 league titles and with the Scarlets region delivered the 2003 Celtic League Championship with a quarter-final berth in the Heineken Cup at the same time.

He was Assistant National Coach when Wales won the 1993-1994 Five Nations Championship title and was part of the British & Irish Lions Coaching team under Sir Clive Woodward in New Zealand during 2005, primarily involved with the unbeaten midweek team.

Jenkins’s first Wales outing as Head Coach was a development tour to Argentina in 2006. He stepped down from the role of Head Coach after Wales failed to reach the knock-out stages of the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
