Specialist Coach

Magpies Netball has strengthened its coaching stocks ahead of the 2018 season after securing the services of defensive specialist, Rob Wright. Arriving at the Holden Centre following seven years with the New South Wales Swifts, Wright joins the Magpies as a defensive coach. After a successful tenure in Sydney – including back-to-back Grand Final appearances and a win rate of 55 per cent over 61 matches coached - Wright joins the Magpies looking for a new challenge in his coaching career. Widely regarded as one of the game’s best strategic minds, Wright will oversee the Magpies’ backcourt, working closely with talented defenders Sharni Layton, April Brandley and Matilda Garrett.
