Western Suburbs is pleased to announce that Nathan Waters has been appointed coach of the Magpies for the 2015 Ron Massey Cup.
Waters played last season in the NSW Cup for the Wests Tigers before a shoulder injury ended his campaign.
Waters is a Wests junior and was part of the 2002 SG Ball premiership winning team, playing alongside several Magpie juniors who went on to the top grade, including Dean Collis, Isaac De Gois Bryce Gibbs, Ryan Hoffman and captain Liam Fulton,
Magpies' General Manager Leo Epifania said Waters would bring a fresh, young outlook to the coaching team and would provide an attractive option for players looking to compete in the Ron Massey Cup. Epifania also said that he will act as a mentor for Waters, whom Epifania believes is the best suited of any player he has had under his guidance to the role of coach.
Waters' appointment coincides with the signing of Wests junior Shannon Gallant for the 2015 season. Gallant has followed Waters through his career as captain, and now as coach.
Wests welcome Nathan to the position of head coach and look forward to a successful 2015 Ron Massey Cup and Sydney Shield season,
