Welcome to the Eagles family, Robbie Coleman
With a focus on player development, the Eagles Academy, and continuous improvement of our high-performance program, Robbie Coleman will join the Eagles for our 2024 campaign.
The club welcomes Robbie with open arms, who is known to the Canberra rugby community as a tremendous person with immense rugby experience as a coach and player.
Eagles Head Coach Locky McCaffrey says this is a great step toward continuous improvement for our rugby program.
“I’m particularly excited to have Robbie join our rugby program. He’s a good friend of mine, a really good person and he really cares about the game and developing people within it”
“I know the Eagles Family will embrace him with open arms and hopefully we can use his skills and experience to continue to grow as a club next season”
Coleman will join the Eagles Family as 1st Grade Assistant Coach and will be one of many great coaches within the Gungahlin Eagles Academy for U18s-U20s players.
