Head Coach - West Ryde Rovers Super League

In 2018 it is expected that WRRFC will compete in the GHFA Super League competition, following 2 years in the Premier League competition. These competitions have first and reserve grades and the club would expect to enter with a squad of around 36 players across the two grades.

2017 was a rebuilding phase for the club with a number of club juniors making the step up from the U18/19 competitions following the departure of a number of senior players at the end of 2016. We were unfortunate not to have avoided relegation but with the expected retention of a strong core playing group, the return of several former squad members and some targeted recruitment, it is anticipated with the right coach guiding the squad that we will have a very strong chance of returning to the PL competition for 2019.

The club participates in the SL/PL competitions to give our junior players a clear development pathway towards an elite level competition within the local Association.

  • working with the club Committee to facilitate strong links between the SL/PL squad and the junior teams;
  • liaison with coaches of youth (U17-U19) teams to identify and develop future senior squad players;
  • lead by example in implementing and enforcing the Club Code of Conduct and fostering an inclusive, positive and respected player/team culture;
  • lead WRRFC SL squad on match day to positively represent the strong family values of the club;
  • aim to gain promotion to PL competition in 2019
