Coaching Bio

I'm a former professional rugby league player with NRL, state of origin and Super League experience, I coach with an athlete centred approach whereby I work closely with the individual or team to enhance their performance through well designed and tailored coaching sessions. I am able to coach at my location or your current training facility.

I was a professional rugby league player for over 10 years in Australia and UK, while playing in Australia I was fortunate enough to win an NRL premiership Storm 07, play State of Origin NSW and play over 100 first grade games. I transitioned to coaching while playing in the UK coaching under 16's & 18's sides, returning to Australia I coached with the Knights NSW cup side in 2014-15 Premiership in 2015, I coached South Newcastle Lions for 3 seasons 2016-2018 winning 2 premierships. In 2016 I was appointed the NSW Women's state of origin head coach from 2016-2018 winning in all 3 years. I was a specialist rugby league coach at Hunter Sports High School for 5 years coaching in age groups of 12 to 18 years of age with a number of them joining NRL clubs. In 2018 I was appointed as an Assistant coach at the NRL Brisbane Broncos. I have a good understanding of coaching across all age groups and sexes from my recent coaching experience and I look forward to helping you develop as an individual or as a team
