The Ospreys are pleased to announce the appointment of Corin Palmer as the region’s new Performance Director.
Palmer will fill a newly created role and will boost an already impressive rugby department, including Mike Ruddock as Development Director, Dan Griffiths as Rugby General Manager, and Development Pathway Manager, Gareth Walters.
His appointment is the latest piece in the jigsaw as the Ospreys continue to strengthen and improve the off-field rugby departments to support the on field performances.
The Ospreys have already made a commitment to their own Player Pathway Programme and to developing homegrown players, like Keiran Williams and Will Griffiths, to represent the regional franchise.
He will leave his current role as Head of Elite Performance and Player Development at Premiership Rugby to join the Ospreys and brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the role.
Palmer will be tasked with driving and leading the off-field performance team for the first team squad.
He will be focused around linking the high-performance department and provide support to Head Coach, Toby Booth, and brings a rugby CV that boasts time as Rugby Operations Director at Worcester Warriors, Head of Academies and Development at Premiership Rugby, General Manager at Bristol Rugby.
