Key Facts

SquadEngland Women
PositionHead Coach


Most recently known for his record-breaking coaching achievements with England Women, Gary Street wasn't a bad player himself. A highly-regarded former scrum half, Gary started his rugby career at Aston Old Edwardians in 1986, a club he played for until 2004. During that 18-year period he also ran out for Greater Birmingham and the North Midlands.

Gary was still playing when he discovered his passion for coaching and got involved with the women's international ranks. Since 1992, he has coached England Students, U18s, Academy and Sevens.

In 2006, following England’s second place finish in the Women's Rugby World Cup, Gary became England's Assistant Coach working alongside Geoff Richards. One season later he was promoted to Head Coach of the England Women's team.

Since then, he has led England to five consecutive Six Nations championship victories, including four Grand Slams, and also the final of the 2010 Women's Rugby World Cup where England narrowly missed out on the top honours with a 13-10 defeat to New Zealand.

Sport has, and always will be, a part of Gary's life. His sister captained England Students at football and his wife played rugby for England. He's also very proud of his two sons; Ben is seven and is already an accomplished gymnast while Peter is three and also a gymnast and a karate wannabe.

Gary is a RFU Level 4 qualified Coach, an IRB Course Director and a FIRA Stage Expert.
