“After leading our team to the MLR final in 2023 we welcome Blair back into the Legion family for another season. He knows the job was not finished last year and is chomping at the bit to go one better in 2024. His drive to succeed and his passion for the game is second to none and is the reason why the Legion boys are willing to go to war (rugby) with him every weekend. I’m looking forward to having him back in the red and black and to go one better for 2024.”
