NEW Fylde RU recruit Warren Spragg has spoken of his delight at joining the Woodlands club after his spell playing in Italy.
He said: “I’m really pleased to be joining Fylde on my return to the North West.
“The club has made some great strides forward in the past few years and look to have combined a great style of rugby with some good results.
“As the new strength and conditioning coach I hope to be able to improve the fitness levels of the squad which will allow us to be more effective playing an attractive brand of running rugby.”
