The Brisbane Broncos NRL Women's Premiership side have a new coach in former New Zealand Ferns coach Kelvin Wright.
The Broncos took the NRLW by storm last season, going through their three games unbeaten before taking out the inaugural Premiership.
However, the clubs have pulled off a coaching coup to secure the services of the former Warriors assistant coach.
Wright comes into the Broncos NRLW role to replace last year’s premiership-winning coach Paul Dyer, who will return to concentrating on his fulltime, long-term role as the Broncos’ Game Development Manager.
He currently holds a position at Tweed Seagulls as their Women’s Program Manager and Head Coach.
Speaking to brisbanebroncos.com.au on Monday, he said it was an honour to join the team.
“The Broncos had a fantastic run last year, the staff and players did a fantastic job – so there’s certainly a great platform there for me to work with,” he said.
“The players that have been there and proved themselves – we’ll try to get that nucleus back but there’ll be a few new additions who have put their hands up.
“The Broncos were very successful last year, so I don’t need to come in and reinvent things but I’ve got my own style of coaching so there will be a point of difference.”
Wright will be looking to finalise his 22-player squad over the coming months.
Players have chances to earn themselves spots at one of the four NRLW teams at the upcoming Women's National Championships on the Gold Coast and the State of Origin in Sydney next month.
Pre-season training for the Brisbane Broncos is set to begin in August.
