Ross' career is full of achievements that could just about be a website on its own, however we have tried to keep it as succinct as possible. Ross played 63 first class games in total, with 40 of those representing the Swampfoxes. He coached Thames Valley from 1988 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2007, in that time winning two national championships with them. He also coached the Chiefs from 1997 to 1999, as well as many other coaching roles at many levels. Ross was also an All Black selector from 1994 to 1998, was the All Blacks assistant coach in 1995 (Tour to Italy and France) 1996 every game and 1997 for every game. Ross reckons his greatest achievment was being the All Blacks Assistant Coach in 1996 when the All Blacks defeated the Springboks in South Africa for the first time.
