Mission Statement...

No matter what your rugby aspirations are as a player or coach, HQ Rugby Consultancy will help you achieve your goal.



Tiff Eden, Worcester Warriors

"I was mentored by Paul Hull during my two years in sixth form at Dean Close School. Paul’s advice helped me achieve an ambition of playing professional rugby. His time at the top of the game has given him an excellent understanding of knowing what it takes to be successful as a professional rugby player.

Paul is a great mentor. We worked together on goal setting and built a personal development plan that I followed under Paul’s guidance. His ability to identify key areas for development helped me to improve my game.

Paul helped me to work on a variety of skills. He videoed team performances and used the video to help me to understand game strategies in greater depth, as well as helping me to recognise my own strengths and weaknesses as a player.

Today Paul and I are still in regular contact with each other and he shows a strong interest in my continued development. I can pick up the phone to him, knowing that he will give honest and give sound advice whenever I speak with him."

Archie first got to know Paul through his HQ Summer Rugby Camps. We then booked onto the HQ Player Mentoring programme. Personal coaching is a big step but it has certainly been worthwhile.

Paul spoke at length with Archie about what he loved about rugby; about what he wanted both for his future and from his training and got a real understanding about what Archie wanted from his sessions. From there Paul has worked with Archie, identified his strengths and weaknesses, put together a personal development plan and worked with him to develop all aspects of his game. Archie is a much more able and intelligent player as a consequence of working with Paul.

Paul always encourages Archie to work hard but makes the sessions really enjoyable. He is a great mentor. It’s not often that kids come back from training asking “when is the next one”!

It is difficult to get high quality, individual rugby coaching; to get that from someone who has played international rugby and coached at the highest level is a rare opportunity.

We would have no hesitation recommending Paul to anyone who is passionate about rugby.

I was a pupil at Dean Close School, Cheltenham, when I first met Paul Hull, who joined the teaching staff that year, as Head of Rugby. His appointment led to a resurgence of Rugby success at the School.

From the outset of his tenure, it became apparent that Paul possessed a deep love, understanding and passion for the game, which was infectious.

Paul treated me as a professional, not just a schoolboy. He mentored me through 1 and 1 sessions, which greatened my knowledge and understanding of the game, and gave me a very informed insight of a professional rugby environment. For example, Paul taught me about professional diet and recovery, and through video analysis, he taught me how to tactically and technically review my games, key parts of professional rugby that Paul gave me prior experience and knowledge of. This allowed me to have a smooth transition from schoolboy rugby into a professional rugby environment, something I am very grateful for.

Outside of our team training sessions, Paul took the time to take skills sessions with me, particularly focusing on kicking practice. He gave me a focus and direction to my practice, using his expert knowledge, and this had a direct positive effect on my performances.

Personally, Paul was the first coach that gave me the confidence and belief to become a professional rugby player. Paul truly enhanced my love of the game. He was always approachable and blessed with the ability to communicate in both an honest and direct way; even the hard messages were expressed constructively.

I was aware of the very extensive network Paul possessed within the game and I am extremely grateful for the links he had within its development and academy structures. He gave myself, and many other promising rugby players within the school, the chance to trial at elite academies and progress their rugby careers. I am only on the first rung of the Pro Rugby ladder, but Paul’s advice, guidance, support and inspiration have been instrumental in getting me here. I will always look to him for advice in the future. Finally, in my humble opinion, Paul Hull is in every regard a ‘Top Man” and I am very fortunate to have been guided by him.

I first met Paul Hull in 2011 when we worked together in Cheltenham. He quickly recognised my passion for coaching rugby and agreed to began mentoring me. It was pretty daunting to begin with having someone of his coaching experience in the game watching and making comments on my practices but with Paul's help and guidance he helped me take my coaching and management seriously by challenging me, making me reflect and focus on improvements I could make. The 3 years we worked together were invaluable for my development although we no longer see each other on a daily basis its great to still be able to talk things through on the phone.

For anyone looking to improve in their coaching and management I would highly recommend Paul. He is friendly, open and honest, very professional in his approach and above all knowledgeable.
