Dr. Falvey has over 15 years experience in the business, working with a number of elite athletes, across a multitude of sports. Falvey left his position as the Ireland national team doctor back in December, after six years in the role.

Lions head coach, Warren Gatland has said he is delighted with the appointments.

 

“Rhodri, Paul and Eanna have a lot of Lions experience, including being part of a winning team in 2013 and they know what is required for us to be successful in New Zealand.

They will bring a wealth of knowledge and skill to their roles and I know they will fit well into the environment we are trying to create.”
