Canowindra Tigers have secured the services of 2017 Woodbridge Cup coach Dan Barclay in an effort to end its two-year hiatus from the Woodbridge Cup finals.

A former Grenfell Goanna, Barclay is currently a PE teacher at The Henry Lawson High School in Grenfell and has had a long involvement with rugby league including time on the Central Coast and Sydney. 

It’s shaping as a big season for the Tigers with the return of a number of players including the Bowman brothers, Dan and Brad, and Kain Earsman who had a stint at Orange CYMS. 

Stuart Scott and Lachlan Watson have also reportedly agreed to return to the Tigers, and will likely fill keys roles as outside backs.

Tigers appoint Grenfell's Dan Barclay as coach for 2018

The Tigers will begin preparations this Friday afternoon with a training run at Clyburn Oval from 6.30pm. The Tigers missed out on the finals in the 2017 season, however its youth league made a late surge to almost qualify for the decider. 

The Grenfell Goannas Captain Coach for 2018 will be Steve Taylor.
