February 20: Australian Coleman returns to Mavericks for 2003 RCSL
The Calgary Rugby Union has announced that 2002 head coach Darren Coleman has agreed to a contract for the 2003 Rugby Canada Super League season to direct the Calgary Mavericks. The native of Newcastle, NSW will take the head coaching reins of the senior side while also overseeing the coaching and management of the under-21 side. The full-time appointment of the former NSW Waratahs assistant coach was announced by CRU Vice-President Ian Cathery.
After a successful 2002 season, which included a first ever win for the Mavericks over a west Coast team with a tight victory over the Vancouver Wave at Burnaby Lake, Coleman is looking for bigger things from this year's edition. 'Our goal last year was to come up with a winning record while giving ourselves a chance to win each game', Coleman stated from his winter base with Benvenuto of the Italian Serie A. 'This time around with our systems firmly in place and a belief that we can do more, we want to take another step forward and compete even more strongly in the competition.'
Coleman, who directed the Calgary Saints club side to consecutive Alberta Rugby Union provincial final appearances in 2001 and 2002, believes that supreme preparation and a solid three month commitment will be required to allow the squad to take another step forward in 2003. 'With the deep and talented teams on the West Coast and the always tough teams on the Prairies, we will need to play very well each and every game and rely on some luck to improve this season.'
On the playing side, former Leicester and Canada winger Dave Lougheed has committed to the program and Canada Sevens standout Quentin Fyffe will return as well. Coleman will announce additions to the senior and under-21 Mavericks coaching staff over the next two weeks.
