Adam Kyle appointed head coach of the Goulburn Bulldogs

The Goulburn Bulldogs have appointed NRL Game Development Officer and Canberra Raiders juniors coach, Adam Kyle, as head coach for 2018.

Kyle made the following announcement on Facebook and Instagram:

"It's with great pride I can finally announce that I've signed on as the head coach for the Goulburn Workers Bulldogs for season 2018.

I'm really excited to be working with this great club and players and looking forward to the season ahead.

After five years coaching some exceptionally talented young men it's with a heavy heart I've decided to step away from coaching the Raiders juniors this year."

He was the coach of the Canberra Raiders SG Ball team in 2017 and has previously coached the Harold Matthews team. He replaces former Canberra Raiders player, Michael Picker, in the role.

Canberra Raiders boost support for Walker Park upgrades

The Canberra Raiders have thrown their support behind Yass Valley Council’s application for a share in the NSW Government’s Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund to upgrade Walker Park.

Five board members from the club visited the facility on Monday, February 5 for a discussion with Yass Valley Council about the upgrades. The club also provided a letter of support for the council’s application.

"We got to make sure that the facilities here are up to standards with other towns and cities because then it encourages kids to play sport and stay here and not move to Canberra or Sydney," Raiders CEO Don Furner said.

Ryan McQueen speaks prior to the match.

The Canberra Region U23’s produced a dominant display to defeat the Victorian U20 Thunderbolts at AAMI Park on Friday afternoon in the World Club Challenge curtain raiser.

With players hoping to impress Canberra Region coach Ash Barnes for a spot in the Monaro trial next month, Barnes said he was pleased with his sides performance.

“I’ve been really pleased with the effort of the boys today,” Barnes said. “They’ve given me a lot of selection headaches going forward.
