I have had the opportunity to be involved in Rugby League for over 40 years as a player, coach, volunteer and fulltime employee. Over this period the game has provided myself and my family some wonderful opportunities, none more so than the 5 years we spent traveling the UK and Europe making life long memories and friends while playing our game. I have a vast experience within Rugby League stretching from my on field days both as a player and Coach to now my administration role with the QRL where I see an important part being planning for the future.
Creating an environment that attracts new and retains old participants, volunteers and fans is important for the Gold Coast over the next 5 years and as our female game continues to grow we will need to think differently about when/how and how often we play Rugby League. I along with our team look forward to continuing to support all our clubs and committees in achieving their goals for 2022.
