Dylan Hill to coach Narromine Jets
THE Narromine Rugby League Club has wasted no time appointing 2018 Macquarie coach Dylan Hill to replace this year’s mentor, Wes Middleton. The pair have swapped roles after both had taken on their first coaching roles with their respective clubs this year.
The Jets are excited to welcome Dylan to the Jets family as captain-coach according to President Archie Harding.
“Dylan will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role and we are excited to have him on board.
“Dylan was selected to play in the NSW Indigenous side in 2008 and the Australian Institute of Sport Team in 2009. Between 2010 and 2013 Dylan played in the NRL under-20s competition with Cronulla and Manly, so he has an outstanding playing resume,” Archie added.
Although he has had a couple of years off because of recurring injuries, Harding believes the big forward can make a success of his new position in the club that has produced the likes of Bob Weir, Josh Cale, the Smith brothers Pat and Mark, and David Gillespie.
“2018 was Dylan’s first year of coaching and he guided a young Macquarie Raiders first grade to the semi-finals. He is looking forward to coming to the Jets and playing again.
“I made my playing comeback recently at the Indigenous Knockout with the Dubbo Pacemakers and I’m really looking forward to joining the Jets. The change is refreshing,” Dylan said.
The Jets’ President said he is really looking forward to the 2019 season.
"We ticked a lot of boxes on and off the field this season and we welcome Dylan and his partner Tiffany to the Jets family,” Archie smiled.
The Jets are negotiating with several players and are expected to have more of an idea of their playing roster when pre-season training starts at the end of November.
