New operations manager for Counties
Chaney joined CMRFU early in 2010 as a Rugby Development Officer and since then has been instrumental in growing player numbers, developing the Ultrarip non-contact form of rugby, developing coaching resources and establishing the new Coaches Club.
The 37 year-old has also been a key part of growing the Women’s rugby programme within Counties Manukau and has coached several of the Union’s representative teams.
Chaney’s commitment and passion for rugby and the Counties Manukau region has the former Wesley College First XV captain and prefect looking forward to his new role.
“I am very excited about the new challenge. I am grateful for the support of the Counties Manukau Community Rugby team and lucky to lead such a hard working, innovative group of talented people,” he said.
Counties Manukau Chiefs Executive Officer Andrew Maddock said “Dameon is highly respected in our rugby community and has developed strong relationships through out the region.
“He has shown great initiative within our Union so we are rapt by this new appointment.” Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
