Orange and Bathurst receive Waratahs coaching experience


The Rugby community in Orange and Bathurst were visited this week by Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson as part of a series of workshops and clinics.

Gibson spent a few days in the region conducting ‘coach the coach’ workshop along with school clinics for local teams.

More than 30 local coaches took part in the coaching workshop held at Kinross Walaroi, while students at Catherine McAuley and St Stanislaus schools all benefited from coaching clinics provided by Gibson.

Gibson said it was great to visit regional New South Wales and he was impressed by the local’s passion for grassroots rugby.

"The Rugby community in country New South Wales has a real passion for our game and we really enjoyed the opportunity to visit Bathurst and Orange to witness that.

"So many volunteer coaches in the region are doing great things and we were really pleased to see many of them turn out to share ideas and better understand what is happening in NSW Rugby pathways.

"I was particularly pleased to see the talent on show at the local schools as well as how many young people are getting involved and giving rugby a go.

"I've seen first hand the talent produced by country rugby who have come into our Gen Blue squads and at the Waratahs level. The likes of Tom Robertson, Alex Newsome and Harry Johnson-Holmes are just a few of the names that spring to mind.

"I want to congratulate the Central West rugby community for the great work they continue to deliver to grow Rugby in the region," he said.
