The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce that John Strange has been appointed Head Coach of the Club’s 2021 NRL Women’s (NRLW) Premiership team.

Strange assumes the head coaching role after acting as the Roosters’ NRLW Assistant Coach in 2020. He also enters his second season as Head Coach of the Central Coast Roosters Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership team.
