After finishing last season with back-to-back wins, Piper is looking forward to leading the team into the 2018/19 season.
“It has been really pleasing this pre-season to have the new indoor centre and the guys based in Sydney training well and ready and raring to go this week,” said Piper
“It was probably a bit of a handover year last year (as head coach) but I took the reins fully after Christmas and that is why it was pleasing to get a couple of wins nice and early on.
“But this year I had the full pre-season with the group and I guess what will be will be over the next couple of weeks.”
