QRL announce new Maroons coaching staff
An emerging coaching talent from within the NRL ranks and a former national shot put and discus champion are among the additions to the Queensland Maroons support team unveiled today.
Manly Sea Eagles assistant Anthony Seibold joins the coaching team for 2016 as an assistant to Kevin Walters, who also welcomes former champion thrower and QAS senior strength and conditioning coach Chris Gaviglio into the Maroons’ fold.
Rounding out the new faces are two practitioners who have worked with some of the state’s leading sporting athletes and organisations – Dr Matthew Hislop (Sport & Exercise Medicine Physician) and Robert Godbolt (Physiotherapist).
“The staff that we are bringing in are highly credentialed, they know their roles and I’m confident they will do a tremendous job for the players and the people of Queensland,” Walters said.
“I felt the changes were needed just to freshen the place up and to bring in new ideas that will stimulate the players a little bit more.”
