Huia Edmonds to Join Easts Coaching team for Season 2019

It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that Huia Edmonds will be joining the coaching team for season 2019 as Assistant Coach, 1st Grade.

Huia is no stranger to Canberra Rugby having completed his schooling at Erindale College and playing his early rugby for the Vikings.  Huia has an impressive Rugby CV. He has 49 Super Rugby caps (for NSW, Brumbies and the Stormers). He has 4 caps for the Wallabies making his debut against Fiji in 2010.

Huia has also played in the Currie Cup for Western Province (20 appearances) and has played 42 matches for Gloucester in the UK.

Huia returned to Canberra earlier this year after a stint in France with RC Narbonne.

Huia brings with him a wealth of experience and will be an important part of the team in 2019.  He and Tim have played rugby together in the past and are looking forward to reuniting to help take Easts another step forward next season.

Please join with me in welcoming Huia and his family to the Club.
