2011 FIRST-GRADE COACHING APPOINTMENT

The Joondalup & Districts Rugby League Club is pleased to announce the appointment of former premiership-winning halfback Byron Hutton as the Giants First-Grade coach for season 2011.
 
Byron had a successful playing career as an inaugural Western Reds NRL player, in the Queensland Cup, and with Joondalup. Byron was recruited to Sydney's Western Suburbs Magpies as a 16yr old, where he vice-captained the Australian Schoolboys team before becoming one of only two WA locals in the original Western Reds squad in 1995. He was part of Joondalup's one and only premiership in 2000, winning the Ron Hudson Medal as man of the match in the Grand Final win over South Perth. 'Barney' then retired from playing at the relatively young age of 25, turning his attention to real estate, where he has also been a success for over 10 years.
 
Byron brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the young Giants team, which we hope will bring the club a long-overdue second premiership in 2011.
 
The Joondalup Giants RLC is also pleased to relay that progress is continueing at the Arena Joondalup for the club's clubhouse and new home ground. The clubhouse is still on target and should be ready to handover by January 2011. This has been a long, drawn out and at times doubtful project, so the light at the end of tunnel is near and the club looks forward to utilising the brand new facilities for the 2011 season. The Giants would like to acknowledge and thank our project representatives over the past eight years: Mr Jeff Costello, Mr Rick Plant, and Mr Bruce Robertshaw.
