Coventry Rugby recruit hooker Dawidiuk from London Irish

Craig Gibbons 18th May, 2018

COVENTRY Rugby have captured the signature of London Irish hooker Daren Dawidiuk ahead of the club’s return to the IPA Championship.

Born in Truro, Dawidiuk started his career with Cornish Pirates making 45 appearances over three seasons before the powerful front row joined Gloucester Rugby in 2009.

He went on to make 138 appearances for the Cherry and White’s before joining London Irish in 2017.

Director of rugby Rowland Winter insists the former Pirates front row will add the experience needed in the forward pack to compete at the next level.

“I was impressed with Darren’s attitude and focus when we met in person,” he said.

“He is a hardworking, abrasive hooker who brings plenty of top level experience to the team.

“This makes the hooker spot even more competitive and I know he will be a great addition to the club off the pitch as well.”
