Shute Shield 2021: Premiership coach Taylor back at Sydney Uni and hungry for more success

Two time premiership winning coach Rob Taylor is back in charge at Sydney Uni and already plotting the Students' return to the top of the Shute Shield competition.

Taylor spent last season coaching at UK Premiership club Leicester Tigers but returned to Australia before Christmas to reclaim his previous role at Camperdown.

“We were in a pretty similar position when I came in 2018 actually. First grade hadn’t gone too well the previous year, they missed the finals, but first grade colts and second grade both won their competitions, as they did again in 2020,” Taylor told Rugby News.

“There seems to be a lot of hunger. Uni are a club that expect success and when trophies aren’t won, the club expects a bounce back the following year and that’s what we’re trying to do.”
