Australian NRL coaches

Rugby leagues coaches urged to be good mentors


Former Kumul and Australian NRL development officer David Westley said a coach must be a mentor and a father figure that everyone in their team will look up to. 

Westley currently facilitates the coaching accreditation course program in the country run by the PNGRFL in collaboration with the Australian NRL.

He is also the PNG Kumuls strength and conditioning coach.

He told coaches during the first coaching clinic recently that apart from coaching, there’re the outside factors and roles that coaches have to play as well.
