The Safeguard Global ACT Brumbies are pleased to announce the coaching staff who have been appointed for the upcoming City v Country and Griffins and Kestrels representative campaigns.


Safeguard Global ACT Brumbies deputy CEO and General Manager Community Rugby, Craig Leseberg said: “Congratulations to all of the coaches who have been selected to lead our upcoming representative programs.


“The recent Brumbies Provincial Championships, which set the stage for Brumbies Country squad selection, provided an exceptional display of regional talent.


“Similarly, this year’s BentSpoke John I Dent Cup and Premier 15s seasons are delivering countless exciting contests so we have no doubt the City squads, once assembled, will be highly competitive.


"Which all bodes well for our ACT & SNSW Griffins and Kestrels squads to strongly challenge for the Australian Rugby Shield in Brisbane in September”.
