Luton Rugby have announced Steve Haynes will move from his position as chairman of rugby to director of rugby.
As part of the management committee’s ongoing efforts to restructure the playing side of the club and make it fit for the challenges ahead, senior club management and coaches are working on several projects that will in time, enhance both the senior and junior sides of the club.
