The Wyong Roos Rugby League Club has turfed its long time First Grade Coach, Tony Clarke, and installed First Grade Captain, Mitch Williams, into the role.
The news came following the Roos’ third consecutive defeat in the Central Coast Division Rugby League grand final in as many seasons, and despite Clarke having coached the Roos to four grand finals in his five year tenure it, was not enough to secure his job, with Clarke allegedly given his marching orders over the phone.
It’s understood that Clarke’s contract with the Roos was due to expire, opening up the position for a replacement, with the Roos announcing that Williams had accepted the offer on October 15, to take on a player-coach role.
