Paul March (born 25 July 1979) is an English former professional rugby league footballer who played in the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s, and has coached in the 2000s and 2010s. He played at club level for Wakefield Trinity (Heritage № 1114) (two spells), Huddersfield Giants, York City Knights, Hunslet Hawks and the Keighley Cougars as a stand-off, scrum-half, hooker or loose forward, and coached at club level for York City Knights, Hunslet, Keighley Cougars and the Thornhill Trojans ARLFC.[1][2][3]

Background[edit]

March was born in Thornhill, West Yorkshire, England.

Career[edit]

Paul played much of the 2006 season at stand-off for the Huddersfield Giants as captain Chris Thorman was out injured with an arm injury.

In 2006's Super League XI during the Huddersfield Giants versus the Catalans Dragons match, Paul injured his cruciate ligament and was ruled out for the rest of the season. He was released from his contract at Huddersfield without playing another game, and later signed for Wakefield Trinity for the 2007 season.

Paul became player-coach for York in 2008, leaving Wakefield Trinity after just one season, and in July 2009 he joined Championship 1 club Hunslet as player-coach. He later moved to Keighley, again as player-coach, leaving the club at the end of the 2016 season.

Paul became Featherstone Rovers Reserves Head Coach and Assistant First Coach working under new Rovers Boss Ryan Carr in 2019.

Genealogical information[edit]

Paul is the twin brother of the rugby league footballer; David March.
