Abu Dhabi, UAE, June 8, 2018– The Abu Dhabi-based Harlequins Rugby Club are pleased to announce that following his successful seasons with the club Michael McFarlane will continue as Head Coach for the upcoming 2018/19 season.

The message from Club Chairman, Andy Cole:

“I am delighted to announce that Mike McFarlane will continue as head coach of Abu Dhabi Harlequins for the coming season. Mike’s work ethic, organizational & leadership skills are at the highest level. Mike & his family go above & beyond the role of head coach and we are very lucky to have them as part of the club.”

Under Mike’s leadership Quins have been one of the most successful clubs in the Region, winning every major title in his time with the club.

When asked about his decision to commit to another year with Quins Mike said:

“With the foundations embedded, the professional setup and the close knit culture I have seen grow and develop over my tenure at Quins, I am pleased to be continuing as Head Coach for this coming season. As ever, I will demand the highest expectations of the players but in return know that it will be a fulfilling rugby experience being part of the club both for them as players and their families. I am excited to begin preseason, on the 24th June, which will see the players undertake a comprehensive, professional and individually catered for program in world class sporting environments such as Vogue and Haddins, that will ensure they are in the best place to express themselves on the pitch come September. I know the committee and the club are working tirelessly to ensure we are ready for another great season from logistics to acquiring sponsors.”
