Stephen Hoiles, Head 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 also played for Australia at sevens and was hands-on as assistant coach of Australia’s men’s sevens side in 2018-20.

As well as a skilled Rugby player, Hoiles is known to be an excellent communicator, following his time as a TV commentator and presenter for FOX Sports.

Following his role as Senior Assistant Coach in the Giltinis 2021 MLR Championship, Hoiles was promoted and appointed as Head Coach until the end of the 2023 Season.
