Wayne Falvey Joins Positively Rugby as Rugby Business Consultant
Positively Rugby is delighted to announce that Wayne Falvey has come on board as a Rugby Business Consultant. Falvey will assist Positively Rugby with marketing, sales, sponsorship, and events to continue to grow rugby globally, promoting the business leadership attributes and community goodness of those involved with the sport. He will establish new partnerships and marketing affiliate relationships, and build on existing partnerships and accounts with rugby businesses, players, coaches and staff throughout the world.
As a Rugby Business Consultant with Positively Rugby, Falvey is also available for coaching appearances for events, rugby camps/clinics, educational workshops and any other rugby related services in the USA and abroad. His expertise across both men’s & women’s rugby is highly recognised. Falvey’s involvement in the game is highly favourable with the exponential growth and development of both boys & girls getting involved with rugby and being empowered by their involvement with the sport.
Originally from Cork, Ireland, Falvey has extensive experience in marketing, sponsorship & event management within the sports industry. Falvey is currently the Marketing Manager at the Mardyke Arena University College Cork (UCC).
A rugby fanatic, Falvey took up rugby at the age of nine with his local club Ballincollig RFC. He played senior club rugby with UCC RFC, Clonakilty RFC & Highfield RFC. Falvey represented his province at Munster Youths and Munster Schools Under 19s as well as representing his country with the Ireland Colleges and Ireland Universities. During his time abroad in the USA, Falvey played for Mystic River Rugby Club in the summers of 2009 & 2010.
“This is one of the ‘small world of rugby’ connections Wayne and I have. I grew up in Massachusetts, where Mystic River Rugby, 2016 Men’s D1 National Championship team, is based. I’ve gotten to know the team and they will be hosting one of our partner’s camps,” said Jennie Reid, CEO & Founder of Positively Rugby.
Falvey is now a World Rugby Level 3 accredited coach and is also an accredited IRFU Tutor. While coaching the Munster Senior Women’s Rugby team, they only lost once over his 3-year tenure, leading the provincial side to back to back interprovincial success in the 2014 & 2015 season. Currently the UCC RFC Men’s U20’s Coach, Falvey led his team to finishing top of the Munster provincial league and gained qualification to the All-Ireland qualifiers in his first season. Having held coaching roles with the Munster Boys U17’s, Ballincollig RFC & Highfield RFC in recent years, Falvey will take up a coaching role with the Rah Rah Roosters at this year’s Kinsale 7’s tournament, through Positively Rugby’s introduction.
“We work collaboratively with rugby professionals around the world, connecting people with opportunities. Having Wayne working with us is an honour and his expertise will be hugely beneficial as we continue to expand our global rugby network and project portfolio,” said Jennie.
Speaking on the announcement, Falvey said, ‘I’m delighted to take up the Rugby Business Consultant role with Positively Rugby. It’s an exciting opportunity and one that I’m really looking forward to getting started. I’m extremely passionate about Rugby and this role allows me to assist with the growth of the game, not only through coaching but also through my experience in marketing, sponsorship & events. The work Jennie has been doing for Rugby through Positively Rugby has been fantastic and I hope to add value to that by establishing new partnerships and build on the existing partnerships throughout the world to continue to grow rugby globally,”.

Positively Rugby – Where Forward Passing is Allowed
“In rugby, the rules require the ball to be passed back, and a forward pass is illegal.
The opposite applies to the real world, where passing forward
(paying it forward) is encouraged.”
