Coaching Bio

I have played 276 games in the NRL and 15 State of Origin’s for Queensland. After finishing my career, I have coached a large range of age groups from young children all the way to A-grade footballers. I love Rugby League and watching the athletes I train progress and become more confident.

I started playing in the NRL for the Brisbane Broncos in 2000. Over my 14 year career I played 276 NRL games, 15 State of Origins and 2 games for the NRL All Stars. After retiring, I owned a private coaching company for children from the age of 2 and a half to 5 years old. I am the current coach of the Tugun Seahawks A-grade team. I also currently coach the Tugan Under 7’s team. I enjoy coaching both males and females with varied levels of experience. I have a large range of experience coaching young children all the way through to adults. I most enjoy sharing my passion for Rugby League with the people I coach and watching them progress as players and people over time. I have found Rugby League can really help a person’s confidence not only on the field but often helps improve off-field issues like self-esteem. **I'm currently unavailable for coaching but will be back coaching in October 2020.

Ash is very easy to communicate with and picked up very quickly of what my son required with regards to skills advancement. He also seemed to build a good repoir instantly. Highly recommended.

With my son being a late starter to rugby league, he missed a lot of basics so his confidence in playing was low. My goal for these sessions with Ash was to help him with his confidence. This was the best decision that we ever made. Ash ran through the basics with him and doing it one on one has allowed my son to take the knowledge and skills in. It is the first time my son has walked away from training sessions with his head held high and excited about what he can do with these skills. Thank you Ash for your time with him.
