Stallions coaches appointed

A new look coaching outfit will head up the Cooma Stallions Rugby League Club in 2014.

Both under 18s and reserve grade welcome new coaches, Jason Kelly and Brett Dorward, to lead the way next season, with Steve Dunn back to coach first grade and club president Craig Schofield to coach the league-tag team, the Fillies.

A former NRL player, Kelly, will guide the under 18s side, taking over from Nathan Smith.

He has a wealth of experience having played for South Sydney and the Tigers and is coming on board as under 18s coach after being involved with a number of the under 16s who are stepping up to the side this year.

After a number of years away from the Stallions he is keen to get back involved.

Kelly has had a long and successful association with the club as a player winning premierships as a junior in 1991 and a first grade premiership in 1994. He has also previously been a committee member over a 10 year period as president and secretary.

Fellow newcomer to join the coaching ranks is Brett Dorward who has been appointed reserve coach taking on the role from Paul Lloyd.

He has been a committed player over a number of years and been in a number of premiership winning reserve grade sides. He feels his experience in those sides will help him next year.

Following his success last season, leading first grade to the semi-finals, Dunn will be hoping to go one better next year and guide the side to premiership glory.

While Craig Schofield will be looking to take the Fillies league-tag side to another grand final for a fourth consecutive year, and hopefully claim the title after finishing runners up to Bega last year.
