Assistant Head Coach


Ben Nicholls is no stranger to the state of Utah. Ben scored first ever try in Utah Warriors history during the inaugural season of Major League Rugby, Nicholls has left his mark on Utah rugby.

Nicholls bolsters the Utah Warriors coaching staff with his experience as a player and as an already successful coach. He led the Rugby Utah Selects 7s team to back-to-back championships in 2016 and 2017.

Nicholls was recently awarded the Premiership Rugby Scholarship. He was part of a group that visited the Northampton Saints and was able to interact with the coaching staff, sit in on training and complete a Level 300 training course.

“Utah is a great rugby state,” Nicholls said. “I can’t wait to work with the team and staff to build something really special.”
