Stephen Hoiles, Senior Assistant Coach

Stephen Hoiles will bring all the skill-based acumen he displayed as a Wallabies backrower for 16 Tests to his role as Giltinis’ assistant coach. 

Like General Manager Adam Freier, he grew up with the running rugby ethos of Sydney’s famous Randwick Rugby Club. 

He played over 100 Super Rugby games and was a starter in the NSW Waratahs’ historic championship victory of 2014. 

He played for Australia at sevens and was hands-on as assistant coach of Australia’s men’s sevens side in 2018-20. 

You can see his fingerprints on the Giltinis’ roster of backrowers with the mix of explosive running, hammering defence, linkman qualities, size, proven lineout-winning and youthful skill.  

An excellent communicator, Hoiles has time as a TV commentator and presenter on his CV as well.
