Shane Carney

Head of Strength & Conditioning

Shane oversees all aspects of the club’s strength and conditioning department, managing the physical preparation, development and recovery of the first team squad as well as monitoring the rehabilitation programmes for injured players.

Born in Ireland, Shane studied at University College Dublin before completing his Masters at Leeds Metropolitan University and went on to work in rugby union with Leeds Carnegie RFC before joining the Robins four seasons ago.

Working alongside Tom Clough, Shane has produced a unique approach to S&C for the club, pioneering the way in the Betfred Super League for the use of watt bikes as part of the team’s training programme, a method which has played a pivotal role in making the club one of the fittest in the competition.
