The Mullumbimby Giants are positioning themselves for a successful 2020 in the NRRRL after announcing new coaches and players for the upcoming season.

Dwayne Moseley will be the head coach for the Club in 2020, assisted by Wayde Kelly and Damon Scott. 

Moseley has a wealth of knowledge and experience having represented Poland, played for Blacktown Workers and won a premiership with Glen Innes as well as being an integral figure for the Giants since his return home in 2017. 

Kelly, who is now the regional manager for the NRL, has won five senior premierships across four competitions, most recently a man-of-the-match effort for Murwillumbah in the 2016 NRRRL grandfinal.

‘This is a great opportunity to give back and finish where I started,’ Kelly said.

Scott, who is a former premiership winning coach with the Giants, is hoping to ‘instill a winning attitude and culture into a young group’.

Ken Watkins will coach the reserve grade side with Mark Hartley as his manager.

The Ladies League tag side is looking for a coach.

In the player department, former Junior Giant, Cody Nelson will be joining the side, when available, from his home-base in Melbourne.

Cody has played for Parramatta and the Gold Coast Titans.

Along with Cody, a number of current and former Giants have agreed to play next year. 

Club president Adam McKenzie was very happy with the club’s direction.
