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.
