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.
