Applications Open for Coaching and Management Positions

Historically Waiuku’s playing strength and style was based on a strong forward pack reflecting a combination of the farming community and the steel mill. There is excellent committee support and support from the local community and sponsors. Since 2000 the club has become one of the powerhouses of Counties rugby, winning the Premiership in 2000, 2003 and 2010, with runner-up placings in 2004 and 2009.

Several players have moved on to higher honours, most noticeably Jim Coe, Alan Dawson, Roy Craig and the Club’s first locally bred All Black, Stephen Donald.

We are currently seeking applicants for coaching and management positions for the following grades: Premier, Premier Reserves, U21s and U85s.

The successful candidates will have proven club, High School 1st XV or representative coaching experience.
