BIELLA – Aldo Birchall is no longer the coach of Biella Rugby. The relationship ended prematurely, a decision resulting from the uncertainty into which the world of the Italian oval ball fell following the pandemic.
Birchall, rugby player at XV at the highest level in Italy, arrived in Biella in the 2017/2018 season as assistant to Andrew Douglas. He contributed in the double role of coach and player to the victory of the Serie B championship in 2018 and to the promotion to A. From 2018/2019 he has in hand the technical management of the Senior team, which has shown that he deserves with honor a place in the top flight , where in just two years, as a newly promoted, she moved on to compete at the top of the standings by touching access to the play-offs before the Coronavirus interrupted everything.
He is now going to play the role of scrum coach in the prestigious CSKA Rugby in Moscow, a club that competes in the Liga Stavok-Russian Rugby Championship, the top Russian championship.
Alberto Benettin is the new yellow-green coach
The new head coach of Biella Rugby will therefore be Alberto Benettin. Paduan, he was born agonistically with the black jersey of Petrarca Padova. In the shadow of Mucrone from the 2019/2020 season as a player, he had accepted the role of head coach in August last year. In his curriculum the jerseys of Benetton Treviso, Aironi, Zebre and the prestigious blue jersey of the Italy Under20.
Alongside Benettin will be the charismatic and biellesissimo Davide Vaglio Moien, prop of the first team and appreciated coach of the youth categories.
