Former National Rugby League star and now Toowoomba Valleys Rooster Brett Seymour is this week confirmed as the Club’s new Head Coach for 2017.
In a massive coup for the club, Seymour will take over the reins from Wayne Barnett who has taken up a role with Qcup side the Mackay Cutters. As we congratulate Wayne in his big career move to Mackay, we can also be assured that his development of our young playing group will be continued through Brett. Wayne was also instrumental in securing Brett’s services for our Club.
Brett brings a wealth of experience to the Toowoomba Roosters with 123 NRL games for the Brisbane Broncos, Cronulla Sharks and the NZ Warriors. Brett also played 4 years in the UK and the Super League and has recently been coaching in Mackay.
The former Schoolboy sensation, who made his NRL debut at the age of 17, has been through a rollercoaster journey during his NRL career but will now look towards experiencing the enjoyment of grassroots footy and offering his collective services to the greater need of the Toowoomba Club.
In somewhat of a homecoming, Brett and wife Roseanne will bring their young family to the Garden City in an exciting move which will offer a balanced family environment with great opportunity.
Brett will also take on a playing role and will have the support of our senior players for coaching duties when required.
Sign On for the 2017 season with the Roosters will be mid November with a commencement date for pre season training announced soon.
It is an exciting season ahead for the Roosters and we welcome Brett and Roseanne, and their young family to Toowoomba and our great Club.
