Yabbies announce coaches, women's side for 2020

Young Yabbies Rugby Union Club have appointed their coaches for the 2020 season.

Ned Mullany will continue as the men's side coach with Oxy Loco and Mick Hudson taking on the newly formed ladies side.

Club President Cec Finley said the club is extremely pleased to have three stalwarts in the coaching positions and is looking forward to a successful year.

"The inclusion of a women's side is particularly exciting as they will follow the same competition as the men," Cec said.

The combined wealth of experience of Oxy and Mick will prove beneficial to the ladies side as they learn many new skills and plays.

Ned is looking to build on last years improved performance, to make the semi finals and be a real threat for the competition title.

"His key strength is his ability to unite the side through self belief, team work and reliance on each other," Cec said.

"His training ethos is short, sharp and focused sessions."

All three are advocates of rugby being an enjoyable experience with the social side being instrumental in driving club culture and morale according to the Yabbies president.

The club is still seeking Managers for both sides and would welcome any interest via their email at: youngyabbies@gmail.com.

"The club is excited with our prospects in 2020 and in particular having a ladies team playing on game days, it will be great," Cec added.
