After the departure of inaugural NRLW head coach Dean Widders, the Parramatta Eels needed a new one and have found their man in Steve Georgallis.
Georgallis joins the side with some pedigree having both played and coached the game for the better part of 40 years.
Georgallis has been appointed as the Eels NRLW head coach for two seasons and after spending three years in the sunshine of Townsville, he looks forward to seeing what the Western Sydney juniors and the Eels have to offer.
“I’m really looking forward to connecting with the Eels playing group and working closely with assistant coach Kate Mullaly and the rest of our staff to ensure we build a successful football program next season,” said Georgallis.
“Western Sydney is the heart of rugby league and the Parramatta Eels are a big part of that, so it’s very exciting to lead the women’s program and continue to build on the great work that has already been done in that space.”
As the Eels look to improve on their last place in the most recent NRLW season, the club backs Georgallis and their investment in women’s rugby league as a means to improve.
“Steve brings a wealth of rugby league knowledge and experience that we know our NRLW team will greatly benefit from,” said Eels CEO Jim Sarantinos.
“We have made significant investments in our women’s program and we are looking forward to our NRLW program benefiting from the many years of coaching experience and fresh perspective that Steve will bring to the Club.”
