The new Committee have been working hard to secure the services of a Head / 1st Grade Coach for 2021.

Epeli Ruivadra will be joining the Club in an official capacity next year taking up this role. Epeli’s resume is a great read with highlights including representing Fiji in 28 International Rugby matches between 2001-2006, 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games Rugby Silver Medalist, 2002 Hong Kong Sevens Leading Try Scorer & Representing Fiji at the 2003 Rugby World Cup. Since his playing days, Epeli has had coaching experience with various Clubs across QLD whilst working in the Sunshine State.

I have met and spoken with Epeli a number of times since the end of the season and he is really excited to bring his knowledge and experience down to the Club. Epeli will be working with players across all grades to develop our talent and also help upskill our coaching staff. Epeli was very impressed with the players we had at the Club this year and is looking to help all grades go one better next season.

We welcome Epeli down to Beecroft and are very excited to have someone with Epeli’s experience guiding the Club in 2021.

Pre Season Training will be starting 6:30pm Wednesday 27th January.

Peter May,
Club President
