Darren Lewis, Performance & Recruitment Analyst
Lewis most recently headed up the Performance Analysis Department at Gloucester Rugby. In his seven seasons with Gloucester, he provided invaluable support to the 1st team coaching staff through video analysis. Previously, Lewis spent almost five seasons with fellow Premiership club Bath Rugby as Head Analyst where he worked alongside USA Rugby Head Coach Gary Gold.
Lewis grew up playing rugby in South West England and after sustaining a career ending injury at University of Wales Institute Cardiff (now known as Cardiff Met), Lewis made the shift to performance analysis. His first analysis gig was with Opta Sports where he provided analysis support to various professional rugby teams. While working towards a Master’s in Performance Analysis, Lewis joined for the first season of the Welsh Rugby Union’s Premiership Bureau where his team of analysts covered over 250 games delivering analysis resources back to WRU for player and team monitoring.
Currently, Lewis owns and operates his own company, Codex Analysis. Codex helps develop analysis processes for a number of different sports including Ice Hockey, Basketball and Soccer as well as teaching on the post graduate program in performance analysis at the University of Gloucester. Lewis also is a consultant for Nacsport, where he was first introduced to Jackals GM Elaine Vassie.
Lewis will be stationed remotely in Gloucester, with frequent communication with the coaching staff. He and his wife Chanel, from Chicago, have a three year old son named Harper and a second child due this December. Outside of rugby, Lewis has a passion for music with a very eclectic taste and enjoys cycling.
