Leeds Tykes have strengthened their medical team for our 2022/23 season. Bryony Watson joins Fay Martin and Anthony McWilliams to help support the medical and rehabilitation needs of the squad.

Jon Callard, Director of Rugby, explained: “Having a strong medical team is something we value greatly at Leeds Tykes. The players put their bodies on the line for the club. Making sure we have the best possible medical provision in place is important. So far, the medics have done a great job on keeping the injury list small and turning around anyone with niggles quickly and getting them back on the pitch.”

Bryony will provide her services at the team medical clinic on Monday evening, which assesses players at the earliest possible opportunity after each Saturday’s game. She is also due to complete her pitch-side qualification so she can provide medical assistance on match days.

Bryony said: “I was lucky enough to get placement at Leeds Tykes during my final year of uni. and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Everybody at the Tykes, the players, coaches and staff were amazing. When I was given the chance to stay on with Tykes I said ‘Yes’ without hesitation. It’s a great club and I’m learning so much and getting great experience working alongside head physio Fay.”
