Last night, the Hillies community welcomed new Head & Club Coach Clinton Allardice, who put the boys through their paces in the first session for 2017.
Clint is taking the reins from departing Head Coach, Rayne Simpson who led Hunters Hill to one of their most successful seasons in recent times. Joining the Club in 2016, Rayne instilled a culture of commitment, comradery and community, which was reflected in some superb on-field and off-field performances. Rayne’s professionalism & experience shone through in Hunters Hill’s Barraclough campaign, with 1st grade winning the club’s first premiership in 5 years. Rayne is moving overseas to Fiji for the next chapter in his life, however he’ll always be Hillies. Rayne’s partner in crime Mark Gudmunson will also be moving to Sydney’s Shute shield to further his coaching career and we wish him all the best. Please join us in thanking Rayne and Mark for their services to Rugby at Hunters Hill.
Hunters Hill warmly welcomes Clint Allardice to take on the challenge of securing Subbies Glory in our 125th Year. Clint brings with him plenty of experience, coaching at premier Shute Shield clubs in Sydney & refereeing at the highest level in Australian Club Rugby. Most recently, Clint has been coaching at Shute Shield powerhouse Sydney Uni, where he took his teams to three grand-finals and two premierships including a 2nd Grade 2015. Please join the committee in welcoming Clint and his family to Hunters Hill!
